What do Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Sarah Palin, Angelina Jolie, and Lady Gaga have in common? If you guessed "hammy spotlight hogs," you'd be correct. But in addition, all their bios will have been given the comic book treatment by Bluewater Productions once Jobs' bio is released in August.

Yes, the Cupertino chief's comparison to a superhero will have more validity when a 32-page comic "Steve Jobs: Co-Founder of Apple" spans his life and career. Writer CW Cooke spoke with Comic Book Resources on the upcoming bio.

"Admire him or hate him, Jobs' vision and business acumen revolutionized the world," he said. "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."

The comic's release also follows the successful publication of the Zuckerberg bio which sold out when it hit the shelves. Based on those sales, Bluewater was compelled to take on the Apple CEO.

"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 said. "The idea behind both efforts is to show the person behind the personality and that it is never what you'd expect."

While a straight version of Jobs' life is admittedly interesting on its own, given the format, hopefully we'll see a few rampaging androids, radioactive blackberries, or -- at the very least -- windows into a bizarro dimension.

The issue will soon be available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Borders for 1/75th of the cost of an iPhone: $3.99.
