Apple’s Steve Jobs Immortalised In Comic Book

A comic book documenting the life of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has gone on sale in the US.

It depicts the life of the technology mogul from his adoption as a baby to his unveiling of products such as the iPhone and iPad.

The Silicon Valley icon, who has been described as the Michelangelo of the digital age, died in October at the age of 56 following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died in October after suffering pancreatic cancer for seven years.

Steve Jobs: a life of innovation and invention

Thor Parker, of Midtown Comics in New York, said: “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.”

He added: “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.”

Comic book fans have given mixed reviews. One, Zane, told Reuters: “I think it’s great. I think he’s a interesting guy, interesting point of view in his life and in my opinion everything translates well into comics.”

But Michael said: “I think I would rather read an autobiography about him than a comic book.”

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

Mr Jobs founded Apple in 1976 with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne.
