There are very few CEO’s of a multi-national corporation who can make front page news across the globe when they resign. However Apple’s Steve Jobs did just that in August when he handed in his notice from the computing giant he co-founded back in 1976. The man who bought Apple back from the brink in the early 90s and introduced the world to the iMac, iPod, iPhone and iPad has led an enigmatic life and what better way to tell that story than in comic book form? We’ve previewed the Steve Jobs comic from Blue Water Productions this site back in July, but with the book released this week, I interviewed writer CW Cooke and artist Chris Schmidt about the particular difficulties that arose in putting together a biography on the world’s most famous CEO.
As a fan of all things Apple and a fan all things comic-related, then surely the prospect of a Steve Jobs comic book is at the very epicentre of what rocks my world? And I would have to agree – although perhaps a tad reluctantly!
The great folks over at Blue Water Productions are following up their Mark Zuckerberg and Martha Stewart bio-comics with a look into the life and times of the world’s most famous wearer of black turtle necks, Apple CEO Stephen P Jobs. I for one can’t wait to see the Jobs story in all it’s glory, and judging by the exclusive preview pages below it really does start right at the very beginning!
Now I wonder if it will feature a huge super-hero style face off betweem Jobs and Gates with Woz and Balmer as the sidekicks? I guess we’ll have to wait until August to find out as that is when Steve Jobs the comic will be available from all good comic stores worldwide and also via the Comics app as well!
