Faith Series: The Life of Pope Francis #1

Just in time for Easter, Storm Entertainment will release an exciting addition comic book biography catalogue chronicling the life of Jorge Mario Bergoglio. Written by Michael Frizell and featuring art by Vincenzo Sansone, Faith Series: The Life of Pope Francis is a 25-page sequential art account of the childhood, training, and rise of the 266th pope of the Roman Catholic Church and first pope of the Americas, Pope Francis.

Released on March 23rd, the comic book will feature two collectible covers. One by famed artist Pablo Martinena and the other by Vincenzo Sansone.

As the “Pope of the People,” Pope Francis is famous for saying, “I prefer a Church which is bruised, hurting, and dirty because it has been out on the streets, rather than a Church which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security. I do not want a Church concerned with being at the center and then ends by being caught up in a web of obsessions and procedures.” From his humble beginnings to the leader of the Catholic Church, the story of Pope Francis has maintained his status as one of us. It is his status that author Frizell found challenging.
