There definitely is comics for pretty much like anybody. -For comic-book publisher Bluewater, the real life giants of technology and their incredible abilities aren't much different. -Steve Jobs is-- his brain was probably bigger than mine could ever hope to be. And same with Sergey Brin and Larry Page. They are just giants. -The likes of Google's Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and Apple's Steve Jobs are the unlikely subjects of their latest biographical comic series. Well, they're not slinging webs or taking flight, they are heroes in their own right. -Bluewater Comics is spending a lot of time, energy and money on its high-tech hero series. The real question now is, how was it gonna be received in the marketplace? -There isn't one type of story that's being told. It's like you know, everything is included in the graphic narratives. -Anything with pictures and word balloons is a little easier to understand than just watch a text. -From Lady Gaga to Adam West, Steve Jobs or Mother Teresa, the Bluewater Bio Comics are finding their niche.
