4 Entrepreneurs Star in the Tycoon Graphic Novel

By Maryann Yin 

TycoonHow did four entrepreneurs achieve great success? Bluewater Productions will examine the lives and careers of Brooklyn Nets team owner Mikhail Prokhorov, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, former General Electric chairman Jack Welch, and business executive Herman Cain in a graphic novel entitled Tycoon: Rising to the Top.

Rafael Cordeiro designed the cover. Tony Laplume, C.W. Cooke, Marc Shapiro, and Jim Beard worked on the writing. Miky Ruiz, Angel Bernuyl, David T. Cabrera, and Kurt Belcher created the interior artwork.

Publisher Darren G. Davis gave this statement in the press release: “Some of the most of the interesting stories don’t come from Hollywood but from the business world. People like Schultz, and Welch created unique cultural touchstones that have more entertainment value than the latest single from a pop star. Their stories are America’s myths.”
