Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg Stars in Comic Book



    Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook's chief operating officer, now has her own comic book available for download on iTunes.

    Sandberg is featured in "Female Force: Sheryl Sandberg" which is slated for release on Thursday, according to the Re/Code. The $3.99, 32-page comic is actually a biography of Sandberg by Bluewater Productions, which has also made bio-comics of Michelle Obama, Mother Teresa and Hillary Clinton. (It also has featured the less prestigious late-night talk show host Chelsea Handler.)

    From the comic's iTunes blurb:

    Sheryl Sandberg’s book, Lean In, works to inform professional women how to be more successful in their professional lives while leading fulfilling, personal ones. The story behind the American businesswoman (the Chief Operating Officer of Facebook), her book, and her success is as compelling as any self-help book and as “liked” as any post.

    Sandberg reportedly only heard about the comic recently. Readers should expect appearances from Facebook chief executive and Sandberg's boss, Mark Zuckerberg, as well as her husband, David Goldberg (also the chief executive of SurveyMonkey.)

    Bluewater is also expecting to launch comics based on the lives of other tech titans such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Sergey Brin, Larry Page and Zuckerberg.

    One thing we noticed was that Sandberg seems to be wearing a top that exposes her midriff on the cover which doesn't seem like something an executive at a tech company would be wearing. Let's hope that she gets to wear more clothes inside the comic book.
