Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Nabs Superhero Comic Book Character
*Insert superhero theme song here.*
Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has secured more than just her seat in the House of Representatives because now, the first-time rep has obtained a feature character in a new political comic book.
Devil Due Comics announced (Feb. 22) a team of artists had rallied together to bring the "mother of all one-off commemorative comics," Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez And The Freshman Force.
"It’s no secret that AOC has been made the unofficial leader of the new school and has sparked new life into Washington," Josh Blaylock, the publisher of Devil's Due Comics, said. “And that’s reflected in the enthusiasm we received from so many contributing artists.”
The comic book's creators have reveled Ocasio-Cortez will “engage in a series of super-heroic mini-adventures, taking on the GOP establishment from within." The Chicago-based comic company also revealed that this "anthology comic satirically skewers everyone from President Trump to his near-endless team of morally-compromised Republican cronies,” The Hill wrote.
The first issue, titled "New Party: Who Dis?,” takes obvious inspiration from the effervescent democratic representative, who offered a response to Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) after the politician publicly discredited the 29-year-old's position in politics.
The new book is expected to hit shelves May 15, just 10 years after the “Barack the Barbarian” comic series, which was originally aimed to recount the "bone-crushing exploits of our 44th President.”
