In his almost 20 year comic career he has worked with some big names in the industry but none bigger than Jesus! Yes, that one!
This Christmas, Billy takes on what has been referred to as the ‘greatest story ever told’ with ‘Billy Tucci’s A Child Is Born’.
This 32 page comic will chronicle the time leading up to the birth of Jesus based on the Gospels of Matthew and Luke.
“This is an incredibly ambitious project for Billy,” friend Matman said, “but I would expect nothing less from him. When he takes on a project, he dives into it heart, soul and pencil. He has had some personal issues that he and his family not only took on but won and I think he’s at a place now where the Christmas story isn’t just another story.”
Joining Billy for the cover will be artist / painter Mark Sparacio and the book will be colored by Paul Mounts who has promised “every panel will feel like a painting”.
“From the earliest days of 'Shi' to my current mainstream work for DC Comics, every project I’ve approached has been deeply personal to me,” Tucci tells the media. “And I cannot think of any body of work more worthwhile to my family than to illustrate the story of Mary and Joseph.”
Billy Tucci’s A Child is Born is featured on Page 226 in the September 2011 edition of Previews from Diamond Comic Distributors. Its product code is SEP110740.
