Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is unstoppable. In a brief period, she has not only become a pioneer in politics, but she’s making a difference every day she’s in office.  As the youngest politician to ever get elected into Congress and as a woman of color, Ocasio-Cortez is now larger than life, and it’s pretty simple to see why. She is challenging the status quo and is not intimidated by the standard way things have always been done in Washington. So, it makes perfect sense that she would be transformed as a superhero.

Devil’s Due Comics has released a commemorative issue featuring Ocasio-Cortez as its lead character. The website boasts: “more creators than there are payments on a student loan.” Hilarious!

“It’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the ‘Freshman Force’ of Congress vs. the establishment in this all-new commemorative comic! Comic creators converge to celebrate the election of the most diverse group of freshman congresspersons in history, and spare no-one in this satire that aims at Washington. From the house that brought you Barack the Barbarian: No F#¢*s Left! Featuring comics from various artists and bonus activities and games. Grab a hamberder and cup of covfefe and prepare to enjoy this read!”

This comic is genius, spot on and so needed. It’s a book that we should all get ASAP. Oh, and it’s printed on recycled unpaid medical bills! But of course! We’d want it no other way. The comics will be sent out on May 15, and are available for pre-order purchase now.  There are various price points for individual books or packages. Since you are pursuing their website, there’s also a couple of Barack Obama comics too. For that extra discount Devil’s Due posted on Instagram, “Comic shops can reserve your copy today by using the Diamond Code MAR191678, or you can preorder at!” Behind this cool comic are artists Jill Thompson (who worked on Scary Godmother) and Jose Garibaldi (The LEGO Movie 2).

“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 said in an interview with CBR. “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.”
