After conquering the world of social media, is comic book stardom next for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg? The folks at comic book publisher Bluewater Productions apparently hope so.The firm has created a comic book based on Zuckerberg's life, not-so-cleverly entitled "Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook," that hits news stands on Wednesday. The 48-page giant-size comic book promises a more "balanced" portrait of the social networking site's founder than the "detached, cold and calculating Internet visionary" portrayed in the Oscar-nominated movie the Social Network, Bluewater said in a news release.
"Mark 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," the comic book's author Jerome Maida said in the news release.
Still, Maida said the comic book does not shy away from also detailing Zuckerberg's controversial rise. "Mark dealt harshly with some people on his way to where he is today," Maida said. "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."
