"How much is a mint condition Zuckerberg #1 going for?"

Because no bid for publicity is too desperate for the sad and lonely world of comic books, here comes another waste of trees that no one demanded. Yes, Mark Zuckerberg joins the ranks of Mr. T and The Human Fly as a real-life comic book character destined to litter 25 cent boxes for decades to come.

According to the comic book's author, Joe Maida, "This is a fantastic story. 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. It’s amazing.”

Is it possible that the world knows hardly anything about Zuckerberg because he's boring as hell? Hey, I appreciated the filmmaking skills that went into The Social Network, but I'm no more curious about an overpriviledged computer nerd riding yet another internet bubble than I was before I saw it. How about films and comics based on the life of the guy who created Frogger? You say you don't care? That's funny - neither do I!
