"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." ---Jerome Maida, Author, Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook

In the Oscar-nominated movie “The ”, you will notice that the founder and CEO was portrayed as a “detached, cold and calculating Internet visionary.” Looks kind of biased? Wait till you discover a balanced portrayal of Zuck today. However, not in the big screen but on the news stands.

Bluewater Productions made a biography comic about the life of Facebook’s young CEO. The comic book is entitled “Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook.” It’s a 48-page giant-sized issue created by freelance journalist Jerome Maida and illustrated by Sal Field.

“This is a fascinating story,” says Maida. “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.”

“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.”

This comic book will hit the shelves today at $6.99.
