Billy Tucci's "A Child Is Born" should be required reading.......for EVERYBODY! This wonderful graphic novel showcases not only Billy's phenominal artistic talent, but also a tremendously moving, historically accurate telling of the birth of Jesus Christ! You don't have to be religious to appreciate the depth of detail in this work of art! You can see his heart and soul has been poured into each and every page! Everything, from the style of clothing, to the pottery and baskets, is as it was those many years ago. The absolute attention to detail is staggering! Open the front cover, and the story pulls you in right away, and you feel as though you are a witness to one of the most important moments in history! What Mr. Tucci has done here is nothing short of brilliant! Also credit to Mr. Paul Mounts, who's coloring of this book is the BEST coloring job I've ever seen on a project like this! It looks as though he colored the book with light itself! This book makes a perfect gift for anyone who loves great art, a great story, true history, and something that will truly warm your soul! Please do yourself a favor, and get this book! Share it with those you love too! Bravo to all involved! Merry Christmas indeed!

This is not your child's nativity book.....although it could be. My point is that Mr. Tucci has not published a "childish" version of the nativity. The artistic quality of the pictures is great and the book faithfully portrays the Gospels.

I'd never heard of Billy Tucci before reading this, despite having been a comic book collector for over 20 years. My loss. I don't know what else Tucci has worked on, or if it's been as impressive as this, but "A Child is Born" is an absolute masterpiece. The text and dialogue are taken almost directly from the story of Christ's birth in the biblical Gospels of Matthew and Luke, and the artwork is truly breathtaking. The detail of the illustrations is excellent, and the page layouts are cinematic in scope -- reading through this felt like watching an epic movie adaptation of the Christmas story. All that was missing was some grandiose musical score in the background. The story of Jesus' birth is a pretty familiar one, and I'd read it and seen it adapted to screen and TV as much as anyone, but "A Child is Born" really puts the story in a different format and makes it feel fresh and new. It had been a long time since I gasped in astonishment while reading a comic book, but it happened several times on my first reading of this book. This is an instant classic and gets my highest possible recommendation!

The Story of our Lord, well referenced and Beautifully illustrated by Award winner Billy Tucci! The Art style , colored by Paul Mounts, is a great fit for the story and the characters are well cast and believable! The stunning cover grabs you... and once you're in, you find yourself immersed in this thrilling depiction of the birth of the Greatest Hero Ever: Jesus Christ, The promised Messiah and Saviour of the world, nicely adapted from the Gospels.

A child is born is one of those books that even though you haven't read comics in years, or frequently read comics you have to have. Billy and co. Researched the legend, got into the facts,backed them up with astrological data and it shows. It's a treat when you see an artist put his heart and soul in a book,it shows. The artwork is fabulous, the story crisp, the colors amazing, even if you think you know the story of the birth of Christ there are elements that you discover that add on to what you know. A book for any collector,reader or lover of good story and art.

I would recommend this comic book to everyone- all ages- 0 to 100 years +. Not just at Christmas, although it is sure to be read every Christmas, but the whole year through. The wonderful life like pictures bring the birth of Christ to life. Just amazing. I hope Billy Tucci will continue to bring the Bible to life through his comic books. Well done, Billy.

But this book deserves it. This book is not watered down or “pretty”. It is realistic, almost raw. It was almost haunting to read the first time because it is so much like my image of how the nativity looked. I bought this for my own family, but plan to buy many more as gifts. This book was a wonderful idea executed with grace and beauty.
