Comic Artist Sergio Cariello

Sergio Cariello (born April 23, 1964 in Recife, Brazil) is a Brazilian-American comic book artist. He has done work for many major comic publishers through his career, including Marvel Comics and DC Comics, as well as popular independent companies like CrossGen Comics and Dynamite Entertainment.

In the video below, hear the story of Sergio Cariello, the artist behind "The Action Bible". Sergio graduated from the Word of Life Bible Institute and who now works as a full time artist. Sergio has worked for Caliber, Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Idea and Design Works, Todd McFarlane Productions, Image, Disney, Family Life Publisers, Crossgen, ATP, Zondervan/Harper Collins, David C. Cook, Dynamite and others.


Sergio Cariello knew he wanted to be a cartoonist at age 5. At age 11 he created "Frederico, the Detective," a weekly comic strip for his local paper. He wrote and drew the whole strip himself. It ran until he was 14.
Cariello worked on his first comic book, "Dagon, the Worlds of HP Lovecraft," while attending the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. During his second year at the school, Virginia Romita hired him as a Bullpen Letterer at Marvel. While there he was given pencilling assignments on Daredevil and Marvel Comics Presents: Spellbound.

When Pat Garrahay moved from Marvel to DC, he offered Cariello pencilling duties on Deathstroke. At DC he also did work on Guy Gardener, Steel, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Young Heroes in Love, Blue Beetle, Batman, and Azrael, among others.

When work slowed down, he got a teaching job at the Kubert School and taught several courses over 7 years. Currently, Cariello is pencilling and inking The Lone Ranger for Dynamite Entertainment. He recently finished the eighth installment of his Son of Samson series with writer Gary Martin for Zondervan. He has also illustrated the Action Bible, an updated version of The Picture Bible for David C. Cook Publishing, which was released on September 1, 2010

About the Author from Amazon   Action Bibles
Sergio Cariello was born in Brazil in 1964 and started drawing as soon as could hold a pencil. At the age of five, he already knew that he wanted to be a cartoonist. And so did everyone else--he drew on church bulletins, napkins, and every surface wtihin his reach. He currently resides in Holiday, Florida.

Sergio has worked for Marvel Comics and DC Comics. He attended the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art as well as the Word of Life Bible Institute in upstate New York.

In February, 2006, he was contacted by David C. Cook to gauge his interest in a new project; completely re-illustrating Cook's classic Picture Bible. What David C. Cook couldn't know is that Sergio had grown up in Brazil with a Portuguese translation of that very same Picture Bible. He was reading the Picture Bible before he learned to ride a bike! Even though he knew as a kid that he wanted to be a comic artist, he never would have dreamed that he would one day get to work on the Picture Bible itself!
