The story of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is to be told in a biographical comic book, it has been announced.

Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook, will be available to buy before December, publishers Bluewater Productions said.

Writer Jerome Maida called Zuckerberg’s tale “fascinating” and “compelling”.

A film based on Zuckerberg’s Facebook creation, called The Social Network, is out on 15 October.

The movie, written by West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin and directed by Fight Club’s David Fincher, has not met with the 26-year-old’s approval.

“I just wished that nobody made a movie of me while I was still alive,” he told a technology conference in June.

A month later, Facebook announced its 500 millionth member had signed up.

It took just six years to reach that milestone, after Zuckerberg launched the site whilst studying at Harvard University.

In September, he was named the 35th richest person in the US with an estimated fortune of $6.4 billion, according to Forbes magazine.

But his path to success has not been smooth. Two of Zuckerberg’s fellow Harvard students sued Facebook claiming the idea for the site had been theirs.

Their protracted legal battle ended in 2008 with the payment of an undisclosed sum to Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, whose social networking site had been called ConnectU.

Mr Maida said he had “enjoyed researching” his comic book.

“Think about it, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire on the planet and created something that has already had a profound impact on the world. Yet hardly anyone knows much about him.

“Rightly or wrongly, Mark dealt harshly with some people on his way to where he is today.

“As we see, he left many people feeling betrayed. I try my best to be fair here. No one is totally innocent in this story.”
