A comic book on the life of Pope John Paul II, written by three French authors, was published this week in Poland.
The Polish publisher Bialy Kruck in Warsaw announced that after much deliberation it was decided that the format proposed by the authors did not trivialize the life of the Holy Father, despite portraying it in an unusual way.
Written by Louis-Bernard Koch and illustrated by Dominique Bar and Guy Lehideux, the book had already been published in France under the title, “From Wadowice to Rome.”
The first section deals with the Pope’s infancy in his native town of Wadowice, his adolescence in Crakow, his passion for sports and his priestly and episcopal ministry before being elected Pope.
The second part explains his life as Pope, from the attempt on his life to his travels to the most diverse regions of the world.
