By N. Jamiyla Chisholm May 14, 2019

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman to win a Congressional seat and to preside over the House of Representatives, and tomorrow (May 15) she will appear in stores as the star of a new comic book: “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force: New Party Who Dis?

Produced by Devil’s Due Comics, the book aims to “celebrate the election of the most diverse group of freshman Congresspersons in history, and spare no one in this satire that takes aim at Washington,” according to the publisher. Ocasio-Cortez was not involved in the project.

The publisher says that a portion of the proceeds from the comic will be donated to Raices, a nonprofit agency in Texas that provides free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant families, and military veterans nonprofit USO.
