Freshman congress woman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has had a spotlight on her since she joined the House of Representatives. That has extended to comics too thanks to Devil’s Due with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force. The publisher has announced a new trade paperback collecting the three one-shots released in this political series to date: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force: Squad Special, Talk Bernie to Me: The Bernie Sanders Special & AOC Surprise, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force: New Party, Who Dis?
Of note with this collection is the brand new Squad Special one-shot, drawing inspiration from the congressional “Squad” including AOC, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar. It features more Capitol Hill adventures and new storylines.
Devil’s Due founder Josh Blaylock says:
2020 will go down as one of the most important years in not just U.S. politics, but our country’s history. And if this collection can play even a tiny role in bringing more attention to the current madness in Washington, it will be worth the hard work we put into it.
