The newly-elected American MP plays the role of impertinent superheroes in a new comic entitled "Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force: the new party Who Dis?"
In one of the book covers that has just appeared, Ocasio-Cortez stands over a Republican elephant stunned while a Democratic donkey looks nervously at the background. Her superhero outfit is a white pantsuit and her gadget is a smartphone, thanks to which she taps her 3.2 million followers on Twitter. Another cover shows it in a Wonder Woman style outfit.
"There is just something in Alexandria that resonates with so many people," said Josh Blaylock, the book's creator.
Although the title and cover feature prominently on Ocasio-Cortez, Blaylock said the comic would be "a collection of stories illustrating the theme that we are excited about all the energy and the changes positive that this new generation of Congress members is preparing to bring. "
The comics will look like an anthology and the stories will cover all genres.
"Some stories are really sweet, some are completely absurd and satirical, others are cathartic and windy," said Blaylock.
The comics from the independent publisher Devil & # 39; s Due appears in May.
Ocasio-Cortez has become a celebrity – and a target of criticism from some Republicans – for its meteoric rise and frank style. She did not comment on the comics, although she has already hinted that she likes to read them.
Last month, she quoted Rorschach activist in the "Watchmen" comic book series as responding to a Politico article claiming that Democratic leaders were trying to "control" Ocasio-Cortez.
Devil's Due has also released satirical cartoons about former President Barack Obama, who has been turned into "Barack the Barbarian".
