Sergio Cariello (born April 23, 1964 in Brazil) is a Brazilian-American comic book artist. He has done work for many major comic publishers through his career, including Marvel Comics and DC Comics, as well as popular independent companies like CrossGen Comics and Dynamite Entertainment.
Sergio Cariello knew he wanted to be a cartoonist at age 5. At age 11 he created "Frederico, the Detective," a weekly comic strip for his local paper. He wrote and drew the whole strip himself. It ran until he was 14.
Cariello worked on his first comic book, "Dagon, the Worlds of HP Lovecraft," while attending the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. During his second year at the school, Virginia Romita hired him as a Bullpen Letterer at Marvel. While there he was given pencilling assignments on Daredevil and Marvel Comics Presents: Spellbound.
When Pat Garrahay moved from Marvel to DC, he offered Cariello pencilling duties on Deathstroke. At DC he also did work on Guy Gardener, Steel, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Young Heroes in Love, Blue Beetle, Batman, and Azrael, among others.
When work slowed down, he got a teaching job at the Kubert School and taught several courses over 7 years. Currently, Cariello is pencilling and inking The Lone Ranger for Dynamite Entertainment. He recently finished the eighth installment of his Son of Samson series with writer Gary Martin for Zondervan. He has also illustrated the Action Bible, an updated version of The Picture Bible for David C. Cook Publishing, which was released on September 1, 2010.
