Chapter One of Steve Jobs manga on sale now in Japan
Actually, the manga, imaginatively titled "Steve Jobs," will tell the story of Apple's co-founder from the point of view of Walter Isaacson, the author who wrote the best-selling biography of the executive. Chapter One is now available in Japan as part of the magazine Kiss, published by Japanese manga publishing house Kodansha. The first installment of the manga starts in 2004 when Jobs asks Isaacson to write his biography. Isaacson agrees, but holds off until he hears from Jobs' wife that her husband has cancer. The rest of the chapter deals with Isaacson's first impressions of Jobs, setting up the story for the next installment due next month.
Isaacon's book is also the basis of a script written by West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin that will be turned into a movie. So far, there has been no time frame released for the motion picture, and no announcements have been made yet about casting.

na STAN LEE will beat the crap out of STEVE JOBS in a comic book fight in my opinion

Of course, Stan will come up with something like 'The Avengers' and Steve with something like 'The Fruits'.

Hope it would be an accurate account and not like the movie which only entertains apple fans.

Uhhh...sorry to burst your bubble, but the word "dead guy" sounds a bit harsh.

I'd read those ecchi or hentai manga instead, but if you give me a choice of the crap called Bleach or this, I'd probably read this instead.

Bleach a crap? I bet whatever your fav manga is can't even beat Bleach's long serialization..

The only way this could be awesome is if steve gets raped by a tentacle monster or five.
And they shove apples up his ass until apple sauce comes out his nose
