A biographical comic book of Apple's CEO Steve Jobs will hit the shelves in August, according to media reports Tuesday.

Titled "Steve Jobs: Co-Founder of Apple", the 32-page comic book, which details the life and career of Jobs, will be published by Bluewater Productions Inc.

"His innovations command front page news, speculation of his health affects the stock market. Not bad for a college dropout," Bluewater president Darren Davis said in a statement. "His story, and that of Apple, is epic."

The book, priced at 3.99 U.S. dollars, was written by C.W. Cooke and drawn by Chris Schmidt.

The publisher's intention to make Jobs as its subject came from the success of the comic biography of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

"There are definitely some similarities between Zuckerberg and Jobs. It takes a certain kind of drive and a certain kind of genius to move society the way they have," said C.W. Cooke.

In addition, the first authorized biography of Jobs, "iSteve: The Book of Jobs", will be released on March 6, 2012.
