Steve Jobs is to feature in a biography comic book from Bluewater Productions.

Written by CW Cooke with illustrations from Chris Schmidt, the 32-page one-shot chronicles the Apple CEO's life and career.

"Admire him or hate him, Jobs's vision and business acumen revolutionized the world," said Cooke. "Between he and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, you would be hard pressed to find someone with greater influence over how we communicate, interact and do business over the last 30 years."

According to the publisher, the Jobs comic was pushed into development following the success of its biography title based on the life of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, which will be released in graphic novel format in September.

"There are definitely some similarities between Zuckerberg and Jobs. It takes a certain kind of drive and a certain kind of genius to move society the way they have," Cooke added. "The idea behind both efforts is to show the person behind the personality and that it is never what you'd expect."

Steve Jobs: Co-Founder Of Apple arrives in stores in August.
