Graphic Novel Review: Steve Jobs: Insanely Great by Jessie Hartland

Steve Jobs: Insanely GreatSteve Jobs: Insanely Great

by Jessie Hartland

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

From an art stand-point the illustration is charming. And the way the text completely fills most pages, is unusual — more like a children’s picture book than a standard graphic novel (which is delightful). That’s as far as my admiration goes. The writing… is unforgivably juvenile. The text placement… is infuriating. [why is he thinking aloud in speech bubbles??!!] The topic… is meh. I suspect that if you’re into “Steve Jobs” you’d probably be into this. But, there are significantly better biographies in the graphic novel format to read before bothering with this one.
