    An upcoming manga comic book series from Japanese artist Mari Yamazaki will feature the life story of Steve Jobs, as told by Walter Isaacson in his best selling biography of the former Apple CEO.

    According to Pocket-lint, the officially licensed series will appear in a "female comic" magazine called Kiss, published by Kodansha, Japan's largest manga publisher.

    Steve Jobs brings a company he founded back from the brink of bankruptcy into the world's most valuable company, revolutionizes multiple entire industries, and basically changes the world, but it takes a manga to immortalize him.

    The only think she got right are the fact that SJ was mostly bald and was wearing glasses.

    Does his nose seem excessively large in the picture to anyone else?

    So how many other "venues" can he be immortalized in? And wouldn't you say he's someone who is already immortalized without any books, movies, exhibits, statues, etc. ?

    Different audiences. Female readers are concern about relationships with the opposite sex and each other. Male readers are wondering why the guy living with a harem of cute girls is always a clueless schmuck. :p

    His nose is all wrong, glasses too small. Scrap it and start again.

    I agree the comic does not look like Jobs at all.

    The likeness isn't very good probably to avoid litigation with the Job's family and also
    avoid paying a 30% tax to Apple after what happened with the Steverino action figure.

    You also have to consider the fact that she was drawing Jobs from a different angle.

    I am surprised it is officially licensed with the name Kiss.

    Anyway, I really mean no offence to this artist but I hope this is just a quick study and not the final product because it doesn't have much interest in the style for an award winning manga artist. Look at that beefy neck hahaha

    Jobs was a lot more sturdy several years ago before he got ill. He wasn't always scrawny.

    Drawing from a different angle doesn't change the basic shape of a person's nose, lips, chin, jawline, eyes, ... and so on.
    The only likeness with SJ is the receding hairline, the black turtleneck and the fact that he wears glasses.
