About the Author
Andrea Grosso Ciponte is a Calabrian painter, graphic novelist, filmmaker, and illustrator. He is a professor of computer graphics and digital animation techniques at the Academy of Fine Arts in Catanzaro, Italy. Ciponte was born in Praia a Mare, Italy, in 1977. In 2011 his work was shown at the Venice Biennale. His graphic novel Renegade: Martin Luther, The Graphic Biography, won gold at the Independent Publisher Book Awards and at the Indies Awards.
Longtime Italian collaborators Ciponte and Palmerino present their first work in English with this earnest take on Luther's life, wonderfully rendered through paintings and collages that dip into the biography at critical moments. YA and adult readers alike will find this work intriguing and informative.--Library Journal, Starred Review
The art ... will pull in readers. At times it's rough and jagged, at others dreamlike with biblical imagery floating around and intertwining with the dark age environment... A great addition to graphic novel collections.--School Library Journal
Captivating... Dramatic use of light in the renderings, gorgeous color, almost cinematic. Using visual quotes and metaphors drawn from great art, like Hironymous Bosch's paintings, with their surrealistic imagery of hell, Renegade captures the psychological angst of the story.--God and Comics Podcast
Well told in dramatic, eloquent fashion.--Critical Blast
Ciponte's painted art is lovely and thoughtful...The scenes at Wartburg Castle are wonderful, an explosion of color and impact.--Comics Bulletin
