Learn the true tale of the man who pushed Starbucks into the stratosphere, taking it from its small coffee bean sales to its global coffee domination. See here, in comic book form, the true story of Howard Schultz, the man who made Starbucks a legend.
Written by C.W. Cooke and drawn by Angel Bernuy and a cover by famed artist Conan Momchilov, the 32-page comic book retail in print for $3.99 and digitally for $1.99.
"I am in awe of Howard Schultz,” said Cooke. “What he managed to accomplish in such a short period of time with Starbucks made him a legend. And reading his book made me desperate to tell his story to the world in comic book form.”
from writing about the “Google Boys,” Cooke previously penned bio comics for
Bluewater on other important tech figures, including the sold out Steve
Jobs: Co-Founder of Apple. Fans that missed buying a copy the first time
around are in luck; Bluewater Productions has released a second edition of the
popular comic available at book stores and Amazon.
“Some of the most of the interesting stories don’t come from Hollywood but from the business world. People like Schultz, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg created unique cultural touchstone that have more entering value than the latest single from a pop single. Their stories are America’s myths.”
Howard Schultz: The Man Behind Starbucks can now be ordered in print only at Comic Flea Market. Readers also have the option of downloading digital copies of the graphic novel to their Nook, Kindle, Google Play, iTunes and wherever e-books are sold.
Bluewater started developing comic books on business professionals such as Mikhail Prokhorov, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg: The Creator of Facebook; Sergey Brin and Larry Page: The Creators of Google and Donald Trump. Upcoming biographies are Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter, and Jack Welsh.
