Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is making waves in Washington DC, but she’s also making waves in the comics world too, though for different reasons. Ocasio-Cortez is the subject of a new comic from Devil’s Due titled Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez & The Freedom Force: New Party, Who Dis? and in promotion of the launch, the publisher has been offering up special limited retailer variant covers. One particular cover came under scrutiny for DC Comics though, being a bit too close to their iconic character Wonder Woman for their liking, and now they’ve sent a cease and desist to Devil’s Due (via Bleeding Cool).
The cover in question was the NY Collector Cave retailer exclusive cover by artist Carla Cohen, which as you can see below does bear a strong resemblance to DC’s Wonder Woman. Ocasio-Cortez has an A symbol where the typical W would go, but it’s not hard to make the leap to Diana of Themyscira.
The print run was already going to be small at 250 copies, but once DC sent their cease-and-desist notice that will now even be smaller, as DC requested the covers not be distributed, but recalled, returned, or destroyed.
