Download Episode #218 part I!

This panel was the first of its kind in the five MegaCons I’ve attended, and being a Christian I had to check it out. I want to thank the panelists, Sergio Cariello, Billy Tucci and Chuck Dixon, for giving me permission to record their panel and share it on this podcast.

Sergio Cariello is the artist for the ACTION BIBLE. http://www.sergiocariello.com/ http://theactionbible.com/

Billy Tucci is the writer and artist for the comic book Nativity story A CHILD IS BORN. http://apostlearts.com/

Chuck Dixon wrote BATTLE OF DESTINY, a graphic novel adaption of the fall of King Saul and the rise of David, published by Ape Entertainmenthttp://www.dixonverse.net/

The three comic book professionals shared their perspective as Christians working in the industry. It was an honest, frank and even at times humorous discussion about their personal faith, their experiences dealing with both secular and Christian publishers, as well a dialogue with the audience.

Next Episode: The DC Comics panels, followed by episodes featuring other panels from MegaCon 2012. Next week we will resume our look at the silver age adventures of Superman.
