Ever since Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) quoted the “Watchmen” comic character Rorschach shortly before her swearing-in, the New York congresswoman has attracted a wave of attention from cartoonists.
On Sunday, an Ocasio-Cortez character was a key figure in the second-season premiere of Showtime’s animated satire, “Our Cartoon President,” from CBS host Stephen Colbert’s team. This summer, TidalWave Productions, which publishes the “Political Power” and “Female Force” lines with a bipartisan approach, will release a bio-comic on her.
The article goes on to state the following:
And on Wednesday, Josh Blaylock and his Devil’s Due Comics imprint will publish an expansive anthology. “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force (New Party, Who Dis?),” a 52-page scattershot collection of comics and games, does not mask its political bias, sometimes imbuing left-wing rookie members of Congress with supernatural strength for their battles against political foes, including the White House.
A representative for Ocasio-Cortez said Tuesday that the congresswoman had not yet seen the comic. When the book was announced in February, she told TMZ that she hoped her comic character “might inspire young girls,” and that she was pleased that a portion of the book proceeds would go to the immigrant legal-services organization RaicesTexas.org.
“Publisher Devil’s Due Comics is celebrating the release with twelve separate variant covers including some exclusive to specific retailers across the country,” ComiCon reported.
“The excitement behind Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has proven to be so great that comic book shops across the country not only wanted to support AOC And The Freshman Force, but to design exclusive editions limited to their stores,” Devil’s Due Publisher Josh Blaylock said. “We hope everyone from comic collectors to fans of AOC and Washington politics will get a kick out of them.”
