Steve Jobs, the public face of Apple Inc., is getting a biographical comic book.

Publisher Bluewater Productions says it will bring a 32-page biography titled, "Steve Jobs: Co-Founder of Apple," of the iconic CEO to comic book shops, bookstores and online retailers Aug. 24.

"His innovations command front page news, speculation of his health affects the stock market. Not bad for a college dropout," Bluewater President Darren Davis said.

The book profiles the technological innovator who helped co-create Apple and then oversaw its resurgence with products including the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad.

It is part of the publisher's wider series of unauthorized looks at contemporary figures ranging from Lady Gaga, Sarah Palin, and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

"There are definitely some similarities between Zuckerberg and Jobs. It takes a certain kind of drive and a certain kind of genius to move society the way they have," Cooke said. "The idea behind both efforts is to show the person behind the personality and that it is never what you'd expect."

Bluewater said the success of its Zuckerberg comic- it sold out- led the company to look at Jobs as a subject.
