Mark Zuckerberg the Comic retells Facebook story

The Social Network the graphic novel?

Facebook creator and young zillionaire of the decade Mark Zuckerberg has cropped up in a few different mediums over the last couple of years. First there was a book, then a film – the hugely successful The Social Network. Now he’s set of the kind of stardom normally reserved for super heroes, as Mark ZuckerBerg the comic book goes on sale via Bluewater publications.

The 48-page comic, Written by Jerome Maida and illustrated by Sal Field, tells the story of Facebook’s conception in animated frames. "Rightly or wrongly, Mark dealt harshly with some people on his way to where he is today. …He left many people feeling betrayed. I try my best to be fair here. No one is totally innocent in this story. I try to represent each of the major players' [points] of view,” said Maida.

The book isn’t officially sanctioned by Facebook, nor does it have anything to do with the company, which simply states: "We've said all we're going to say about the movie and the books. We've moved on from this discussion, and we think others have, too.”

With both the original novel and the Hollywood movie painting the social networking king as callous and cruel, we’re not surprised that Zuckerberg is keen to brush off this latest retelling, too.

Will you pick up the $6.99 (£4.31) comic adaptation of Facebook’s origin? Let us know on the T3 Twitter feed. We’ll leave the jokes about the lack of animation in Zuckerberg’s real life appearances to you...
