Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

There’s a new superhero taking over the comic book world. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the star of a new comic series by Devil’s Due. The history-making congresswoman is making her debut in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force: New Party Who Dis?. On the cover, the Bronx-native wears her signature white pants suit and gold hoop earrings and she stands over an elephant while an anxious donkey stands in the background. Alexandria’s signature hoops are her key accessories. As for her weapon of choice, the politician holds her cellphone – which connects her to her over 3 million Twitter followers.

Josh Blaylock, creator of the series, told CNN his inspiration for the story. “There is just something about Alexandria that resonates with so many people,” he shared. Josh noted that the book is a collection of stories that center around the theme of change. “Some of the stories are really sweet,” Josh added. “Some are completely absurd and satirical. Some are cathartic and venting.”
