The Mark Zuckerberg Comic Book Has Arrived

The biographical comic portraying the life of Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg hits shelves today.

Canadian comic production company Bluewater Productions released the “giant-sized” 48-page issue, which freelance journalist Jerome Maida wrote Sal Field illustrated.

“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,” said Maida, adding that he’s trying to give context to a complex public figure in his portrayal of Zuckerberg.

“Rightly or wrongly, Mark dealt harshly with some people on his way to where he is today. As we see, he left many people feeling betrayed. I try my best to be fair here,” Maida said.

Thanks to his billionaire status and the many lawsuits surrounding Facebook, Zuckerberg was already an (unwilling) star of David Fincher’s movie The Social Network, which is up for several Academy Awards. And thanks to the comic, Zuckerberg also may become an animated character, as the production company Hayden 5 Media optioned the script to create an animated film based on it.

The comic costs $6.99 and is available at comic book stores.
