Who’s the latest super-power coming to a comic book store near you this summer? It’s not the Mighty Thor, The Man of Steel or even the Amazing Spiderman – it’s actually Steve Jobs. Yep, that bloke who runs Apple!
The CEO of tech-titan Apple Inc. will be getting his own book from this August through independent publisher, Bluewater Productions. Featuring cover art of Jobs himself – looking like the next Lex Luthor – and created by award-winning artist Joe Phillips who has worked on titles such as Justice League of America, X-Men, and The Incredible Hulk among many other popular comic book names.
Bluewater’s publicity for the upcoming visual biography says that “Steve Jobs: Co-Founder of Apple” will focus on the CEO’s life, beginning as a college drop-out and through to his career and influence with Apple.
The hype, in true comic fashion, is epic and enthralling: “He’s been called an innovator, risk-taker, a visionary and a genius. He’s also been called unscrupulous, an egomaniac and a corporate pirate”.
Superhero or Super-villain? With Apple’s increasing attempts at world domination is art imitating life – or is life imitating art?
“Steve Jobs: Co-Founder of Apple” is expected this August through stores and Amazon.com. And your friendly, neighbourhood Gadget Helpline bloggers expect a digital version for iPad and iPhone should be an obvious addition!
