Steve Jobs to be featured in upcoming manga

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has already been the subject of an authorized biography, two upcoming movies, and a number of unauthorized biographies, and now word has it that he will be part of an upcoming manga comic book illustrated by Japanese artist Mari Yamazaki.

The manga is apparently officially licensed, and takes inspiration from Walter Isaacson's biography. It will be published by Kodansha, the same company that released a localized version of Isaacson's Steve Jobs biography. Yamazaki will be illustrating a multi-issue arc as part of Kiss magazine. 

No word on exactly what events will be part of the comic series, and also no word yet on exactly when the comics will hit newsstands or if the comics will make their way to the US.

Not exactly Manga but Jobs' story is already out as an illustration this year in India. Saw it in the Comic Con. And the best part? The guy who was selling it said, "You should get this, it's a best seller". "No thanks" i thought...bought "Mowgli" for my nephew instead!

It will be fun to see a manga version of Steve Jobs. It will also be a way for the manga lovers/readers to know more about the life of a great man.
