The comic book industry may be undergoing a sea change right now—what with the second largest publisher relaunching its entire line and making them all digitally available on the day of print release—but luckily one hero is about to emerge to bring some stability to the world of four-color funnies:

Steve Jobs.

Bluewater Productions, the publisher infamous for its line of biography comics that may or may not infringe on the subjects’ trademarks, has announced plans to release the 32-page Steve Jobs: Co-Founder of Apple this August, promising “a unique insight into the Apple CEO’s legendary drive to the top and his continuing fight to stay there.”

According to Bluewater president Darren Davis:

His innovations command front page news, speculation of his health affects the stock market. Not bad for a college dropout. His story, and that of Apple, is epic. I’m surprised it took us this long to publish a proper, balanced biography of him.”

The decision to publish may have been helped by the success of Bluewater’s Mark Zuckerberg, Creator of Facebook comic, which sold out in April and is due for an expensive hardcover re-release later this year.

Who knows? Perhaps Jobs’ comic will be successful enough to prompt crossovers with Iron Man, finally allowing us to decide whether Apple iOS or Starktech is the better operating system once and for all.
