Following, Mark Zuckerberg’s movie, and Bill Gates got name-checked in a Lil Wayne rap song (embedded below). It’s now, Apple CEO Steve Jobs getting his own comic book, thanks to Bluewater Productions in Vancouver, Wash.
Scheduled for an August 2011 release, “Steve Jobs: Co-Founder of Apple” offers readers a unique insight into the Apple CEOs legendary drive to the top and his continuing fight to stay there.
“Admire him or hate him, Jobs’ vision and business acumen revolutionized the world,” said writer CW Cooke “Between he and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, you would be hard pressed to find someone with greater influence over how we communicate, interact and do business over the last 30 years.”
Bluewater, says it decided to publish the Jobs biography because of the success of Bluewater’s biography comic featuring Facebook founder Zuckerberg, who also was the subject of the hit movie “The Social Network.”
“His innovations command front page news, speculation of his health affects the stock market. Not bad for a college dropout,” said Bluewater president Darren Davis. “His story, and that of Apple, is epic. I’m surprised it took us this long to publish a proper, balanced biography of him.”
The 32-page issue is drawn by Chris Schmidt (with cover art by DC artist Joe Phillips). It’ll be sold starting in August in comic shops, bookstores and various and Amazon.com. The cover price is $3.99 (Amazon’s pre-order link).
