Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez becomes comic-book heroine

Out in May from independent US press Devil’s Due Comics – which is quick to point out that Ocasio-Cortez has not endorsed the project – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force is, according to its publisher, a “satire that takes aim at Washington” and “spare[s] no one”. Its cover shows the new congresswoman, smartphone in hand, in defiant pose in front of the White House; a variant cover replaces her white suit and phone with a superhero outfit and a sword.

Ocasio-Cortez has previously revealed herself to be a comics fan, taking time out from launching her Green New Deal in January to quote Watchmen creator Alan Moore in a tweet to her detractors: “None of you understand. I’m not locked up in here with YOU. You’re locked up in here with ME.”
