A lot of comic book readers latched onto #ComicsGate to help support independent comic book artists because large publishing outlets like Marvel and DC Comics had begun devolving into relying on Left-wing proselytizing, both overtly and… well, just overtly. While comic book fans have been funding the kind of comic books they would rather read, the old-school press are still intent on trying to use tired and tendentious tactics to lure in culture war neophytes, which includes making a super hero comic based on Democratic Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Great American Politics picked up the news about the new comic book from a piece published over on Newsweek, which explained that the double-decade old Devil’s Due Comics will be publishing the new comic book based on the young politician, and it will be titled Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force.
The variant Washington Warrior cover was also released, featuring Cortez in a Wonder Woman-inspired getup.
As you can see, Cortez is stepping on a fallen red elephant, representing her proverbial “triumphant” over Republican politics.
Cortez will supposedly fight against the GOP, and I’m sure she’ll likely rely on using faulty logic, Twitter dunks, and social media bans when the first two fail. I also wonder how they’ll address what’s essentially a welfare policy on Hulk-tier gamma-rays?
Nevertheless, NBC News is reporting that Jill Thompson and José Garibaldi are heading up the project. Devil’s Due Comics publisher, Josh Blaylock, mentioned that they wanted something that captured her spirit, mentioning…
“It’s no secret that AOC has become the unofficial leader of the new school and has sparked life back into Washington, and that’s reflected in the enthusiasm on display by the men and women contributing to this project,”
“While we all don’t agree on everything, we share a common excitement for the breath of fresh air the new Congress brings. I hope this is as much a cathartic release for readers as it has been for us creators.”
I’m sure there will be videos about the sales (or lack thereof) on YouTube channels like Yellow Flash or other anti-SJW outlets once the comic finally saturates on the market after it release on May 5th. I can only imagine how well the comic won’t do among the actual comic-reading crowd, who will likely continue to keep pumping money into IndieGoGo projects as #ComicsGate keeps trucking away from the politically converged sectors of establishment media.
