By now several biographies of Steve Jobs will have been printed, but it's interesting to note that 'The Zen Of Steve Jobs' takes a completely different narrative approach to the Apple CEO.

Forbes and JESS3's 'The Zen Of Steve Jobs' is a graphic novel that can be best as described as an exploration of the tech mogul's lost years. The content largely focuses on Jobs' exile from Apple in 1985 and how he developed a relationship with a Zen Buddhist priest by the name of Kobun Chino Otogawa. Background information on the two's friendship was taken and then re-imagined visually so that readers get a sense of how the two interacted with one another.

It'll be interesting to see how 'The Zen of Steve Jobs' examines the CEO's life in a visual narrative. Stats for Tech CEO Graphic Bios Trending: Older & Mild
