Thermae Romae manga creator to write Steve Jobs biopic

Thermae Romae creator Mari Yamazaki has a new project: depicting the life and times of Steve Jobs in manga form. Announced on NHK's Hello From Studio Park, Yamazaki commented on her stereotype, saying "If there's anyone who would write about foreign sciences, it'd be me." She was drawn to Jobs' biography because she felt "sympathy" for him.

While Yamazaki said nothing specific about where she's drawing the information for the title, my guess is Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs will by far be the primary source. You can guess that it'll feature a good technical knowledge of all that Jobs went through in his life at Apple.

While it doesn't have a release date yet, the first issue will appear in the josei magazine Kiss. For all you Thermae Romae fans, how do you think the work will compare to what you've read?
