As recently reported, the new Bill Gates comic from Bluewater Productions is available. Having had a chance to peruse it, I can now offer you a closer look, in case you’ve yet to pick one up.
The comic begins “sometime in the future,” with robots talking to each other in binary code. One of them simply asks, “Creator?” Then, some kind of future computer loads a data package, and begins the presentation – the biography of Bill Gates.
Gates is born at the Swedish Hospital in Seattle. After scenes of Gates playing Monopoly with his sister, and doing a bit of stage acting, we get to Gates befriending Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, as the two sit unnaturally close to one another:
From there, Gates and Allen start a business, and Gates goes back to school, and takes a DC intern job. Gates goes to Harvard, while Allen drops out of school and moves to Boston. Eventually, the two get back together, do some coding, and create Microsoft.
They then take then expand the company, and take it back to Seattle:
After that, things get really exciting, and the computer industry is changed forever. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, beyond that. You can find the comic in local comic book stores and book stores. The print version is $7.99. It’s also available for Kindle, Nook and iPad.
Bluewater has comics for Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey and Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin on the way. You can see the covers here.
