Online Preview Available of the Just Released “Mark Zuckerberg: The Creator of Facebook" Comic Book
The 48 page glossy comic book, “Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook,” is scheduled to hit comic book stores today. It promises “a more balanced portrayal of Zuckerberg” than the movie, according to the publisher, Bluewater Productions.
The writer of the comic book, Jerome Maida, told Digits that he originally thought it would be challenging to write a biography of such a young subject (Zuckerberg turns 27 years old this May), but ended up writing almost twice as much as he anticipated. The Facebook founder is “responsible for something that has revolutionized the world-wide culture and changed a lot of people’s lives,” Maida said. Maida is a former staff reporter for the Philadelphia Daily News and currently working as a freelance journalist.
A Facebook spokesperson told Digits, “We’ve said all we’re going to say about the movie and the books. We’ve moved on from this discussion, and we think others have, too.”
A 16 page preview of the comic is available online from Business Insider.
Here’s Some Additional Info from Bluewater Productions.
