The Zen of Steve Jobs is a comic book that follows the life of Steve Jobs during the time he was fired from Apple, revolving around his friendship with Kobun Chino, a Japanese Buddhist monk who was also Steve’s spiritual guru.
The Zen of Steve Jobs is an 80-page comic book containing a mixture of both fact and fiction, unlike the biography of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson.
The project was created by Jesse Thomas, JESS3 CEO and Founder. When Jesse was young he had an idea of making a comic book with a technology-theme, Steve Jobs being an obvious protagonist. In 2011, Jesse pitched his idea to Bruce Upbin, Forbes Managing Editor, who immediately had an appreciation for Jesse’s vision. Shortly afterwards production began as a collaboration between JESS3 and Forbes.
The comic is available on Amazon in paperback form; however the digital edition is only available for the Kindle Fire.
