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.
