Days before the premiere of The Social Network, Canada's Bluewater Productions has announced that it will publish a forty-eight-page comic book saga called "Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook" in December. The aim? To capture the real story of Facebook and the notoriously private Zuckerberg. You know, just like the movie and unauthorized biography are trying to do.

“Rightly or wrongly, Mark dealt harshly with some people on his way to where he is today,” says comic-book author Jerome Maida. “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. I try to represent each of the major players’ point of view.”

Bluewater Productions has previously published biographical comic books about William Shatner, Betty White, and Sarah Palin. As per usual, Zuckerberg declined to get involved in the project.

The more inverse the relationship between Facebook's popularity as a TMI-generating ecosystem and Zuckerberg's barely-public persona, the more the public wants to know. For seven dollars, the comic book is a cheap fix. (But I wonder if we can find it online for free.) And doesn't comic-book Zuckerberg look a lot like Archie?
