Review

"give readers "unique insight" into the late Apple CEO's "legendary drive to the top and his continuing fight to stay there." CNET

"if you have students interested in Steve Jobs, and the biography is just too much, the comic book version might be worth putting into their hands." PC MAG

"obviously, is one challenging assignment, especially given the fullness and fame of the life." Washington Post

First things first: I'm not a heavy or frequent a comic book reader, but this title, Steve Jobs: Co-Founder of Apple, was too compelling to pass up. However, do yourself a very big favor if you're interested in this one: buy it in the paperbook format, and NOT as a Kindle edition.

Had seen a few press items heralding this, and there had been mention that it would also be available on Amazon.com, so I followed the link. My choice was right there: Kindle Edition or Paperback. Could have had the paperback version in a couple of days with Amazon Prime, but I wanted to see how well the images would hold up in Kindle format, so I went for it.

The cover is said to be illustrated by DC Comics cover artist Joe Phillips, and manages to work as grey scale reasonably on my Kindle 2, but from there things head as south as the apple falling on Steve Jobs' head as depicted on the cover. As one moves through the pages, one can dimly see the title page noting that CW Cooke was the writer, and that it was penciled by J. Christopher Schmidt. Beyond that, it becomes a mess; a shame as I would have been interested in seeing how well Chris Schmidt's illustrations held out.

The problem here is not the Kindle, it's the people who format these things for eBooks in general without thinking about how the reader will be able to see them. Some companies have figured it out already, but it's clear that Bluewater Productions has not, and that's to their own detriment.

Many of these pages have three panels, and if they had tried to separate then as opposed to clumping them together, the graphics and text would have been readable.

I got this when it first came out and was disappointed that it was in black and white. What made it worse is that it is released in color on other platforms shortly afterward. I wish I could have gotten a refund. A color update would be appreciated since the work is already done.

My daughter read this as soon as we got it and really enjoyed it. The story is interesting as a story of a modern hero overcoming adversity and as the birth of a tech giant. I liked that it emphasized that Jobs experienced failure, but used it as an opportunity to grow.

I would love to give this a 5- or even just 4-star review, but plain black and white graphics is really disappointing. What's worse is that (on an iPad anyway) it won't zoom to page width, so it's not very readable unless you manually re-size the page, and then you have to cancel out that page (close it) to return back to the regular page before turning to the next page, and then manually resize it again, etc.

I would have rather paid more money for something that was impressive.

I thought this was a fun read. The art was the best part though. Clean, crisp lines with an abundance of character on every page. If you like Steve Jobs, Hate Steve Jobs or don't even know who Steve Jobs is, I'd say snatch up this comic!

I purchased this for my 7 year old nephew, he loved it. It's something kids and people can learn from. I am purchasing as many bios from Bluewater for him to read..It's like cliff's notes for kids.
