LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – For the few who don’t think that “Jersey Shore“‘s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is two-dimensional enough already, this might be right up your alley.

Sorrentino will be the subject of a new comic book produced by Wizard World and Sorrentino’s company, MPS Entertainment, and the company has revealed a first look at the effort, depicting Sorrentino in all his ab-tastic glory.

The comic, which is being drawn by Greg Horn (“X-Men,” “Elektra”), will premiere at the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con, which takes place August 9-12.

Sorrentino will be on hand at the convention, to promote the title (and hopefully teach the comic-book geeks in attendance a thing or two about the GTL philosophy).

“I was confident that an amazing artist like Greg Horn would come up with a great look, but I was still blown away by his painting,” Sorrentino said of the first look. “It has me more excited than ever to see what’s coming next.”

Along with Horn, writer Paul Jenkins, pencil-and-ink artist Talent Caldwell and colorist Paul Mounts are involved with the effort.

Now they just need to find just the right shade of orange to capture Sorrentino’s skin tone.
