It’s Jersey Shore’s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino as you never seen him before! Or, judging by that tanning bed (or is that some sort of gamma ray generator?) on the cover, it might be exactly how you’ve seen him before. Either way, you’re not going to want to miss this upcoming comic book, written by Sorrentino and Eisner-winning comic book writer Paul Jenkins (Wolverine: Origins, Batman, Hulk, Spider-Man). And if you happen to be at Wizard World Chicago Comic Con in August, you’ll have your chance to buy the first issue!
Also on board the as-of-yet untitled comic is artist Talent Caldwell (Superman, X-Men, G.I. Joe), and colorist Paul Mounts (Avengers, Ultimate X-Men, Wolverine, and Thor), as well as superstar cover painter Greg Horn. “This team we’ve assembled is our commitment to put out a comic book of the highest quality that will have a compelling story and amazing art,” said John Macaluso, Wizard World CEO. “Our creative team is hard at work creating a book that will appeal to a wide new audience, and will also interest long-time comic fans.”
Will The Situation successfully join the ranks of such comic book greats as Superman, Spider-Man, and the Incredible Hulk? Will other Jersey Shore cast members follow this trend? Will Snooki’s baby be the X-Men’s next mutant messiah? Stay tooned, True Believers!
