HASH(0xa2848af8) out of 5 stars Update to color March 1 2013
By Haley Bodine - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
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.

HASH(0xa284b39c) out of 5 stars It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's Steve Jobs... and poorly portrayed Jan. 13 2012

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, 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. As this reader understands the issue, and has had to manipulate the controls and magnification with other publications, it could be done, but barely. It just wasn't worth the effort, to be up front about it. Maybe it's the Kindle, but Chris Schmidt's illustrations often did not resemble Steve Jobs or some of the other characters portrayed.

If you're interested in more info about Steve Jobs, then look into WIRED: Steve Jobs, Revolutionary, which is an eBook featuring the best stories from WIRED Magazine about him. It's an anthology that begins with a remembrance by Wired senior writer Steven Levy, who interviewed the late Steve Jobs many times over the last two decades.

Bluewater Productions has announced that they have a forthcoming biography comic release featuring Microsoft founder Bill Gates scheduled to hit the shelves in March. If that's so, then they better do their homework and figure out how to make it presentable in eBook format, or just publish it in paper.

I was thinking that this would be an interesting adjunct to a review that I'm writing on Walter Isaacson's bestselling Steve Jobs, but as it currently sits, at least in the Kindle format, this reader cannot recommend it. Have thought about ordering the printed copy, but for now will pass, at least for the time being.

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.
