‘The Situation’ Gets His Own Comic with Greg Horn Cover, End of Days Possibly At Hand

A while back, we brought you the news that Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was teaming up with Wizard World to create a comic book about himself, which was somehow both mystifying and, given Wizard’s slow transition from taste-making comics mag to traveling celebrity sideshow, perfectly logical. Today, thanks to our colleagues over at MTV Geek, we now know the details of this upcoming masterpiece.

In order to bring the Situation’s adventures to the page, he’ll be joined by artist Talent Caldwell, cover painter Greg Horn, and Eisner Award-winning writer Paul Jenkins. Really.As a general rule, the only TV shows I watch are cartoons for nine year-olds and professional wrestling, so I’m only vaguely familiar with Mr. Ation’s past work. However, Wikipedia — the most reliable source in the world, assuming that you’re looking for details on about three different subjects — informs me that he was once asked by overpriced mall retailer Abercrombie and Fitch to stop wearing their clothes because he was tarnishing their image, so he’s clearly doing something right.

According to MTV Geek, the Situation will be joining Jenkins (best known for his tenure writing Hulk and Spider-Man and co-creating the Sentry with Jae Lee) as co-writer of the book, although if we’re honest with ourselves, that’s probably a pretty generous description of their working relationship. On the art side, though, I have to admit that Greg Horn is probably the perfect guy to draw covers for this book:

Not since Jenna Jameson’s Shadow Hunter has there been a title that seems so perfectly tailored to his style.

As for the actual content of the book, that’s yet to be revealed, but given the creators involved, I suspect that there’ll be some kind of super-hero spin on the Situation’s life. It’s not that much of a stretch, either: We already know he and his team have the uncanny ability to beat up music.
