Oh, how we love Superhero’s ~ and now, in our politically charged environment, and the beginning of Women’s History Month, we have a new Superhero to add to our list ~ AOC! Yes, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be getting her own comic book.
Devil’s Due Comics announced Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force: New Party Who Dis? ~ a commemorative issue, printed on recycled unpaid medical bills will be released on May 15, 2019. “It’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force of Congress vs. the establishment in this all new commemorative comic!”
This project is from the same talented artists that brought us Barack the Barbarian: No F#¢*s Left! Creators include Josh Blaylock ~ Tim Seeley ~ Hoyt Silva ~ Marguerite Dabaie ~ Dean Haspie ~ Jill Thompson ~ Jose Garibaldi ~ Christa Cassano ~ Travis Hymel ~ Pat Shand ~ K. Lynn Smith ~ Kit Caoagas ~ Larry Watts ~ Bob Sikoryak ~ Adam McGovern ~ Nick Accardi ~ Shawn DePasquale ~ Elizabeth Marley Kim ~ Jason Goungor ~ Sherard Jackson ~ Peter Rostovsky ~ Jeffrey Burandt ~ Sean Von Gorman.
“It’s no secret that AOC has become the unofficial leader of the new school, and has sparked life back into Washington and that’s reflected in the enthusiasm on display by the men and women contributing to this project,” Devil’s Due Publisher Josh Blaylock observed. “While we all don’t agree on everything, we share a common excitement for the breath of fresh air the new Congress brings. I hope this is as much a cathartic release for readers as it has been for us creators.”
Partial proceeds will be donated to Military Veterans’ charity and to Raices.org. Of note, neither charity nor congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez have endorsed or are directly affiliated with this project or with Devil’s Due Comics.
