About the Author Mario DeMatteo
is a storyteller, an urban farmer, a purveyor of awesome, and most importantly, a Jesus-follower. During college, Mario was in a tragic diving accident, confining him to a wheelchair. After years of feeling unsure about his future, God put it on his heart to begin work on a children’s ministry tool about Paul the Apostle. The vision: tell the accurate biblical story of his hero, Paul the Apostle, in a futuristic comic book world using crazy amazing cartoon creatures. He assembled the team, co-wrote and edited the script, art directed the illustrations, and founded Beartruth Collective LLC to produce the book. Mario hopes to reach thousands of children across the world with the life transforming message of Jesus.
