Facebook cofounder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is being drawn in a new light - literally.
Bluewater Productions biography comic has released Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook, a 48-page giant-sized issue written by freelance journalist Jerome Maida and illustrated by Sal Field. (To find a comic book store near you that sells the $6.99 book, go to www.comicshoplocator.com.)
"This is a fascinating story,” Maida says in a statement. "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."
According to Maida, the script doesn't shy away from the harsh reputation Zuckerberg earned as a result of his business practices, but he says it tries to give context to a complex figure.
"Rightly or wrongly, Mark dealt harshly with some people on his way to where he is today,” says Maida. "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. I try to represent each of the major players' point of view."
