Wizard Teams With ‘The Situation’ for a Superhero Comic and Convention Appearances

In the words of Michael Sorrentino himself, “Super hero Sitch coming soon!!” Thanks to a new deal with Wizard World Inc., “The Situation” is going to star in his own superhero comic. The deal not only taps the fist-pumping, GTL-ing, star dancing TV personality of Jersey Shore fame, but also his brothers Marc and Frank, sister Melissa and mother Linda. Full plot details are still unclear as no official creative teams have been announced, but Wizard’s official press release says that the comic will be written and drawn by some of the industry’s “leading artists and writers.” Whatever storyline gets worked out (we’re assuming “The Situation” will have powers beyond showing people his abs), Wizard World show attendees can expect to see a whole slew of Sorrentino family members making appearances at upcoming shows. Could this inspire Super Situation cosplay?From Wizard World:

“MPS Entertainment and I are thrilled and excited about our new business relationship with Wizard World. I grew up reading comic books and now I get a chance to star in my own. I can’t wait for everyone to see what we are working on,” said Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.

“Wizard World is excited to partner with one of pop culture’s greatest stars. Mike ‘The Situation’ and his family will broaden our relationships with celebrities to new areas that leverage our access to the media, the fans, and especially our ability to bring comic book characters to life,” said John Macaluso, CEO, Wizard World.

The new comic marks Wizard World’s first foray into (presumably) print publishing since Wizard and ToyFare were canceled in 2011 (Full disclosure: I was a freelance contributor to Wizard from 2009-2011). No word on pricing or whether the comic will include a digital component.
