“Back in 1984, Japanese manga artist Mitsuru Sugaya wrote a fun comic book for kids about the birth of Apple. It was originally published as a two-part series in a popular manga compilation called Koro Koro Comics in May and June that year, but Sugaya published the story in its entirety on his blog on July 11th—iPhone launch day in Japan. 

"The year before I wrote this, I went to Silicon Valley and stopped by Apple HQ," he writes.

Kudos to BoingBoing for this one.
