New Comic Book Tells Story of Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook

New Comic Book Tells Story of Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook

Last year Mark Zuckerberg found himself the subject of multiple books and an award-winning movie, but his press run ain't over yet. A comic book based on the life of the Facebook creator hit store shelves today.

Written by journalist Jerome Maida and illustrated by Sal Field, the 48-page comic book, Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook , is a biography of the young billionaire—one that, according to the publisher, Bluewater Productions, is more objective than the one crafted by Aaron Sorkin and David Fincher for The Social Network.

"Rightly or wrongly, Mark dealt harshly with some people on his way to where he is today," Maida told PC Magazine. "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' [points] of view."

Facebook, of course, had nothing to do with the comic and won't even comment on it, telling PC Magazine: "We've said all we're going to say about the movie and the books. We've moved on from this discussion, and we think others have, too."

What say you? Are you tired of hearing about Zuckerberg's life? We are. Can someone show Jack Dorsey, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams some love? Or hate—whatever makes for a better movie.

Peep some pages from the comic below.
