Artists and merchandisers can’t get enough of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will take up her superhero shield in an upcoming comic-book anthology — the latest piece of art or merchandise inspired by the Twitter-savvy TWTR, +1.22% New York Democrat.

The impetus for “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force: New Party Who Dis?,” a commemorative comic book from Devil’s Due Comics starring Ocasio-Cortez and her diverse array of fellow freshmen, came after the new Congress member made headlines in January for quoting “Watchmen” creator Alan Moore and later appearing on a Donkey Kong charity Twitch livestream to advocate for transgender rights.

“It had too much momentum in our little geekosphere,” Josh Blaylock, Chicago-based Devil’s Due Comics publisher and one of nearly two dozen creators featured in the book, told MarketWatch.
