The Wall Street Journal reporting that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg gets his own comic book, theed. Bluewater Productions produced the comic written by Jerome Maida.
"Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook," a 48-page giant-sized issue written by freelance journalist Jerome Maida and illustrated by Sal Field, is scheduled to hit newsstands, comic book stores and online venues on Wednesday.
"This is a fascinating story," says Maida. "I enjoyed researching it because it's extremely compelling. Think about it. Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire on the planet and created something that has already had a profound impact on the world. Yet hardly anyone knows much about him. It's amazing."
According to Maida, the script doesn't shy away from the harsh reputation Zuckerberg earned as a result of his business practices and aloof public persona, but tries to give context to a complex figure.
"Rightly or wrongly, Mark dealt harshly with some people on his way to where he is today", says Maida. "As we see, he left many people feeling betrayed. I try my best to be fair here. No one is totally innocent in this story. I try to represent each of the major players' point of view."
The special edition title retails for $6.99, and is available from: www.comicshoplocator.com.
