Steve Jobs Biographies

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Super Steve!

I know, a little obvious, right? You expected more from a panelologist.

Back to the topic. I reviewed a copy of the existing biography of Job's life a while back. As a book, iCon: The Greatest Second Act in the History of Business was pretty dry (that's the kind review). Borrow the book from the library if you have to read it. But now there's a new book that Jobs recently authorized Walter Isaacson to write called iSteve: The Book of Jobs which is due to be published next year. I'm hoping for more with this book.

But in the meantime, Bluewater Productions has just solicited a comic book biography of Jobs in this months Previews. The $3.99, 32-page comic book will be published in August and released under the title Steve Jobs: Co-Founder of Apple. Bluewater publishes biographies of many famous people (politicians seem to be their main targets) and they're usually, well....they're usually not very good.

I'll be interested to see what the team of Cooke (writer) and Schmidt (artist) produce this time.
