Bluewater to make bio-comic on ZuckerbergNEW YORK - He created Facebook, is worth $7 billion, and this week a movie about his rise to fame and fortune hit theaters. So, it seems natural that Mark Zuckerberg will be the subject of a comic - one more distinctive mark of celebrity in today’s pop culture.
Publisher Bluewater Productions on Monday said it will issue the biographical comic “Mark Zuckerberg: the Creator of Facebook” in December. The author, Jerome Maida, said the 26-year-old’s life makes for a particularly compelling story.
“Mark was offered loads of money at a young age and turned all his suitors down because deep down he knew he had higher goals than to work for someone else,” said Maida.
“Bill Gates offered Mark a million dollars while Mark was still in high school to work for him, and Mark turned it down.
I mean, how many high school kids will ever be made an offer like that? Very few. And how many would have the confidence to turn it down and pursue their own path? Very few, if any. But that’s what Mark did,” he added.
Other subjects in the series by Bluewater have included teen pop sensation Justin Bieber, David Beckham and Lady Gaga. Reuters Life!
