Bluewater Productions isn’t slowing down when it comes to their biographical comic book line.  Mark Zuckerberg, creator of Facebook, is getting the treatment next in a 48-page comic from the company.

“This is a fascinating story” says writer Jerome Maida. “I enjoyed researching it because it’s extremely compelling. Think about it. 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. It’s amazing.”

“Mark was offered loads of money at a young age and turned all his suitors down because deep down he knew he had higher goals than to work for someone else”, says Maida. “Bill Gates offered Mark a million dollars while Mark was still in high school to work for him and Mark turned it down. I mean, how many high school kids will ever be made an offer like that? Very few. And how many would have the confidence to turn it down and pursue their own path? Very few, if any. But that’s what Mark did.”

Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook arrives in December and has a $6.99 cover price.

  1. At this point, I’m wondering how much longer it gets until Bluewater does one of these about one of their writers.

    (I hope that didn’t come across as comic book guy-y)

  2. Just waiting for someone like Zuckerberg to try filing suit against Bluewater for all these unauthorized “biographies”. There’s probably little precedent supporting a ban on this type of book, but I wonder if they’ll try making one about Steve Jobs. He’s pretty sensitive about, well, everything it seems. The books do tend to be favorable toward the subjects they’re about, so maybe they don’t mind so much. I don’t know. I don’t know the law on the subject either, it just makes me wonder. I have an old unauthorized “biographical” comic about Michael Jordan that I’ve had since I was a kid, I always thought unauthorized seemed like such a negative tone for word.
