Even before his death, Steve Jobs was already an icon. The late Apple CEO and co-founder helped to launch a rapid revolution in technology during his lifetime that still affects the everyday lives of billions of people worldwide.

But the expression of the legendary story of his life and accomplishments will no longer be limited to the empire of his products, a best-selling biography or even action figures made in his image.

You can now learn about Steve Jobs via a Japanese manga. According to CNET, Kiss magazine will run a biographical serial manga about the American inventor and entrepreneur.

The manga will be drawn by Mari Yamazaki (Thermae Romae), and is reported to be “officially licensed” and will be influenced by Walter Issacson’s famous biography of Jobs, according to The Verge.

Yamazaki has recently released a drawing of the manga-version of Jobs. You can view a photo of the sketch below.
