I gotta say, I expected both guys to be jerks to their fans but Russell Brand actually seems like a pretty decent guy.
I wish this was a joke, but unfortunately it's all too real. Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has teamed up with renowned digital media artist Greg Horn (Iron Man, X-Men, Black Widow) and MPS Entertainment to produce the first graphic novel starring what appears to be a radioactive gorilla juicehead that gained superpowers from a radioactive tanning bed.
Sounds amazing, right?
Well it gets better. Other notable members associated with The Sitch's graphic design team include Eisner Award winning writer Paul Jenkins (Wolverine: Origins, Batman, Hulk, Spider-Man), pencil and inks by Talent Caldwell (Superman, X-Men, G.I. Joe), and coloring by Paul Mounts (Avengers, Ultimate X-Men, Wolverine, and Thor).
The first edition will premier at Wizard World Chicago Comic Con in August, so don't be surprised if we see superhero-hungry Hollywood paying six-figures to adapt this atrocity for the big screen sometime next year.
The Situation... as a superhero... and not a joke. WTF is going on?!
