Twitter Co-Founder Stars in Comic Book

Bluewater Productions has published a new comic book biography about Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of Twitter. The book sells for $3.99 on Comic Flea Market.

Patrick McCray wrote the script and Jason Moser illustrated the comic. The publisher released two covers, one drawn by Jason Moser and the other by drawn by Jason Marks. Publisher Darren G. Davis explained why his company continues to publish comic books about these unexpected characters:
