Steve Jobs now immortalized in comic book

   Jan 12, 12:44 pm

Washington, Jan 12 (ANI): Apple's visionary co-founder Steve Jobs has been immortalized again, this time in a new comic book that documents his life.

The book, which has gone on sale in the US, depicts Jobs' life from his adoption as a baby to his unveiling of products such as the iPhone and iPad.

The comic book has been produced by Bluewater Productions, which has previously given the same treatment to Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg and celebrities such as Lady Gaga, The Sky News reports.

Thor Parker, of Midtown Comics in New York, said that comic is basically an overview of the technology mogul's life.

"The Steve Jobs comic is basically an overview of his whole life, kind of a short biography for someone that knows of him but doesn't all the details. It really briefly hits on all the bigger points in his life," Parker said.

"The artwork is pretty basic for a comic. You see a lot of iconic images that are related to Steve Jobs. You see comic renditions of his Forbes magazine cover, a lot of his keynote addresses," he added.

Last month, Jobs was immortalised as an action figure by a pair of toy companies.

Toy companies 'in icons' and 'Dragon in Dream' unveiled the 12-inch action figure called 'iCEO mini' in tribute to the tech visionary who gave the world the Mac, iPhone, iPad and iPod. (ANI)
