Twitter's Jack Dorsey becomes Comic Book Hero

Graphic biography of Twitter co-founder hits shelves today

Every Wednesday is Comic Book Day for fans, the day when new titles hit store shelves. While many are stocking up on the latest Batman, Spider-Man or Avengers titles, techies may want to check out the new book, "Jack Dorsey: Co-Founder of Twitter".


The $3.99 book (also available digitally for $1.99 via iTunes, Nook, Kindle, ComiXology and other comics apps) "tells the story of one of the innovators that have changed the digital world forever," says Bluewater Productions, creator of the book.

The book was written by Patrick McCray, and drawn by Jason Moser. Like many comic books, there are two covers - one by Moser and another one drawn by Jason Marks.

Bluewater has done other comic books based on real-life people as part of its "Business" line - including Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Sergey Brin, Larry Page and Jack Welch.

No word yet whether the story includes a part where Dorsey was button by a radioactive blue bird as his inspiration for Twitter.
