There’s manga for practically everything. From the moment one popped about the politics of making Android devices, one about Steve Jobs was inevitable. Well, it’s here.
The first chapter was published in Japan’s Kiss magazine today, and publisher Kodansha has released a few shots online for those of us who just want to gawk a little bit. Reportedly, the manga is a loose interpretation of Walter Isaacson’s biography on Jobs, so it’s not likely to incorporate anything too outlandish. Whether that’s a bonus or a bummer is a matter of personal opinion.
It’s all in Japanese (duh), so you’ll be hard-pressed to follow the story, but you should know the beats already, and it’s not like there aren’t a million English-language Jobs films on the way. You can read — well, stare at — the rest of chapter one here.
