Boston: Facebook's billionaire founder Mark Zuckerberg is the subject of a new comic book after a book and a movie on his life was released.

The 48-page glossy comic 'Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook', promises to give a "more balanced portrayal of Zuckerberg" than the Oscar-nominated movie 'The Social Network'.

The biographical comic book, brought out by Canadian company Bluewater Productions and written by freelance journalist Jerome Maida, hits stands in the US on Thursday and is priced at USD 6.99.

"This is a fascinating story," Maida said in a statement. "I enjoyed researching it because it is extremely compelling. 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."

There are also plans to turn the comic book into an animated movie.
