The cover for Steve Jobs: Co-Founder of Apple, due in comic book shops in August.

Set to be published in August 2011 by Bluewater Comics, Steve Jobs: the Co-Founder of Apple is a comic book bio by writer C.W. Cooke and artist Chris Schmidt that aims to tell the story of Apple’s inimitable founder in a less wordy and more visual format than Steve Jobs’ official biography.

Although the comic has not been colored or lettered yet, Bluewater Productions was kind enough to give Cult of Mac an exclusive preview of a few of the pages of the still unfinished comic, covering everything from Steve Jobs’ birth and adoption to his time as a tripped-out, LSD-popping Buddhist working for Atari. Check them out!

    Art sucks!

    Looks like something from Marvel or DC ( sans Vertigo )

    This takes cultism one step too far. The biography is one thing, but a comic? Pas pour moi!

    The history seems a bit revisionist at best, and yes .. awful clip-art style artwork.  Most of it seems to be traced from photographs.
