The Facebook Hero

Mark Zuckerberg has been the name on everyone’s lips for the past year or so – and now more than ever. The inventor of Facebook has been named the person of the year by Time Magazine and has had his fair share of stalkers before. Even though he is not yet in the same league as Beyonce or Barrack Obama who are household names, I have a feeling that that is all going to change pretty soon. With the release of “The Social Network” – a movie about his life and the rise of Facebook – many have become more aware of the face behind Facebook. Now Mark has been animated in his very own biographical comic book that illustrates his life.  “Mark Zuckerberg: The Creator of Facebook” is 48 pages long and was written by Jerome Maida and illustrated by Sal Field. The comic book was released by Bluewater Productions in the USA yesterday and is available in stores and online. Shortly after its release rumors have already started about Hayden 5 (a production company in the States) optioning to turn the comic book into an animated film. All this is definitely going to turn the spotlight even brighter on him, which leads me to this conclusion: Mark Zuckerberg is going to have to acquaint himself very well with having stalkers – they’re just going to pile up from here. After all, he is the youngest multi-billionaire in the world and has a great mind to top it off. Who wouldn’t want to stalk him? (Not that I’m considering it.) Do check out his new comic book!
