After, ''The Social Network,'' Mark Zuckerberg is now getting a comic book treatment:

"Hayden 5 Media and Bluewater Productions intend to turn the comic book "Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook" into a film in the style of the 2006 science fiction work "A Scanner Darkly", which mixed live action with animation. ''The result will be a cross between real characters and animated surroundings seamlessly integrated for a unique, comic book aesthetic.''

A brief summary of the ''Creator of Facebook'' comic book suggests Zuckerberg's animated story willn't differ greatly from the silver screen rendition of his life and the founding of Facebook.

''The road for the success for both his creation and him personally wasn't preordained nor was it always a smooth ride. He would be tempted with unimaginable amounts of money and have to deal harshly with people along the way - many of whom would later feel betrayed. Read how a young man's frustration with women helped spark an idea that would have him dating Victoria's secret models and how socially inept young man wound up creating a company that has revolutionized the way hundreds of millions of people all over the globe socialize with each other.''

The ''Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook'' comic book is slated for release next month, but no indication has been given as to when audiences will be seeing Mr Zuckerberg's animated debut.
