New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is set to become a superhero in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez And The Freshman Force: New Party, Who Dis? The Devil's Due Comics special will take a satirical look at her quick rise to political prominence in an anthology of stories.
Now, NY Collector Cave, a comic book store located in Ocasio-Cortez's district, is casting Ocasio-Cortez as Wonder Woman-esque figure with an exclusive cover by Carla Cohen that homages the DC hero.
"We do not support any political figure," a statement from the store read. "However, this cover/book will definitely spark conversation, that’s for sure."
This Ocasio-Cortez And The Freshman Force variant will have a limited print run of 250 copies and is available for pre-order on the store's website now.
The anthology one-shot comic book also features the work of several prominent creators like Jill Thompson, Dean Haspiel, Jose Garibaldi and Tim Seeley, who will provide another Wonder Woman-inspired cover.
A portion of the proceeds from Ocasio-Cortez And The Freshman Force will go to the USO and RAICES Texas, a nonprofit organization that provides legal services to immigrant families and refugees.
"It’s an honor people would put so much of their time and talent into that all on their own," Ocasio-Cortez told TMZ last month. "I’m especially honored that they’re donating the proceeds to RAICES Texas for immigration and civil rights protections. So that part of the project, if it can benefit communities that need it, is really amazing."
Devil's Due is also planning to release Talk Bernie to Me!: The Bernie Sanders Special and AOC Surprise, another political satire that, among other things, imagines Senator Bernie Sanders as a He-Man-esque warrior and features another story about Ocasio-Cortez.
These are only the latest in Devil's Due series of political satires that also includes 2009's Barack the Barbarian, which imagined noted Conan The Barbarian fan President Barack Obama in a Conan-esque world.
Ocasio-Cortez And The Freshman Force isn't the first time Ocasio-Cortez had made comics-related headlines either. In January, the congresswoman responded to critics by quoting a famous line from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Watchmen on Twitter.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force by Jill Thompson, Dean Haspiel, Jose Garibaldi and more is set to be released on May 15 from Devil's Due Comics.
