New Steve Jobs Biography Manga Starts

Mari Yamazaki’s new manga series, comicalization of Walter Isacson’s Steve Jobs biography “Steve Jobs”, began today on Kodansha Kiss Magazine. (Please check my Japan Times column last week introducing three Steve Jobs manga.)
Yahoo! Bookstore offers free preview of the first half, 17pages. You may read it here, though texts are all in Japanese. The blue big button “無料で読む” is a link to html viewer.
The story begins with episodes that how Walter Isacson became to be his biographer after Jobs’ passionate approach, at first without knowing his cancer.

In Japan, couple of hundreds or thousands page manga series are usually released in anthology magazine first, with 10-20 different manga. Then, when with every 200-300 pages stocks, paperback version will be published.
