The Life of Pope John Paul II in Comics

The content of the story is well done and there is information that makes one aware of how well-traveled the pope was and the impact he had made on all people especially the younger generation. The improvement on the comic would be on the drawings; the realistic 'look' is missing.

Outstanding! Pope John Paul's life in comic book form

Yes, I wish every child wanted to read a book rather than a comic book. But realistically, not all children will want to pick up a long biography of a saint. In that case, here is something else to offer: the life of our late, much loved Pope John Paul in a hardback comic book. It's devout and fun, all at once. Everyone should have this in their library. Or donate it to the library. Yes, it's that good.+

The Life of Pope John Paul II... in Comics! is enthusiastically recommended

The Life of Pope John Paul II... in Comics! is a full-color, graphic novel biography of Karol Wojtyla, a pious youth of Poland who matured to become Pope of the Catholic Church and accept the name of his predecessor John Paul out of veneration. Wojtyla's path was a hard one, enduring the loss of his mother at a young age, followed by the oppression of the Nazi occupation of Poland... then the substantially different yet still severe oppression of the Russian occupation and Communist government that denounced his faith with militant force. It is a testimony to Wojtyla's courage that he persevered in his faith despite the dark times in which openly professing religious beliefs could easily lead to imprisonment or execution at the hands of the authorities. The Life of Pope John Paul II... in Comics! traces his early ambitions to be in the theater, which eventually gave way to his heart's calling as a priest. As pope, he set a new high standard in diplomacy, openness, and outreach; he was the first pope to set foot in a synagogue or a monastery, and traveled the globe - in his own words, he wished to be like Paul the Apostle, always on the move spreading the Good Word. The crisp color art vibrantly illustrates the true story of a remarkable religious leader; The Life of Pope John Paul II... in Comics! is enthusiastically recommended especially for Sunday school shelves and church libraries, as well as for introducing readers of all ages and backgrounds into the dedicated life of a great leader.
