The world seems to be over dosing on its latest muse, Mark Zuckerberg. As if the upcoming film,

The Social Network

was not enough, Zuckerberg will be seen as comic book star this December.



A Canada based production company, Bluewater Production specializing in comic books and graphic novels plans to release a 48-page saga which will reveal the life of the Facebook founder. Earlier, Bluewater had caricature-ised the likes of William Shatner, Roger Corman, Ray Harryhausen and Vincent Price.



Buzz is that the comic, titled

Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook,

will seek to answer the question, Who is Mark Zuckerberg really? Is he a super hero or is he a villian? Is he the philanthropist who donated $100 million to schools? Or is he like the darker character in Fincher’s

The Social Network

?

“Rightly or wrongly, Mark dealt harshly with some people on his way to where he is today”, comic book author Jerome Maida told

mashable

. “As we see, 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’ point of view.”



Zuckerberg has gained much popularity in the recent past for his double sided personality. Some call him brash and arrogant young boy while for others he is their tech messiah. Whatever avatar he dons, it will be interesting to see what interest he generates as a comic book star and which avatar he dons in it.
