CONGRESSWOMAN ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ LIFE STORY GETS THE COMIC BOOK TREATMENT
TidalWave Comics is proud to announce the addition of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez comic book to its popular “Female Force” series focused on series focused on female empowerment. “Female Force: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez” is released now.
TidalWave has profiled politicians for more than eleven years using the unique storytelling properties of comic books.
The youngest woman ever to serve in the United States Congress, few politicians have captured the attention of the electorate like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. To the left side of the political aisle, she’s a young, hungry visionary who isn’t afraid to buck the system to serve as the voice of her generation. To the right, she’s an angry, wacky upstart poisoned by a liberal education system that failed her. Her out of nowhere defeat of Joe Crowley, the powerful 10-term representative of New York’s 14th District, is considered the defining moment of the 2018 election cycle. See what she is doing today.
Written by Michael Frizell, art by J. Travis Smith and Cornerstone Creative Studios, this 22-page comic book is available both digitally and in print and can be found on multiple platforms. Cover by famed comic book artist Dave Ryan.
“It is my hope that readers come away with a sense of the richness of the lives of our subjects. I was once a reluctant reader, and I found early-on that comic books engaged me in ways other mediums didn’t.” said publisher Darren G. Davis.
“This book was fun to write, partially because she’s polarizing on both the left and right, and partially because she’s a young person who dreamed big and saw early success. Love her or hate her, you can’t deny that she’s made her mark in a short amount of time. Some politicians never achieve the impact she has.” said writer Michael Frizell.
The Female Force imprint features prominent and influential authors, business executives, entertainers, journalists, politicians, and activists. The biographical comic series has drawn a firestorm of media attention, including features on “The Today Show,” CNN, MSNBC and FOX News, and in Time and People magazines, the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, USA Today, and thousands of blogs and other media outlets such as Politico.
Print copies of the biography comics are available on Amazon. Digital versions are available from iTunes, Kindle, Nook, ComiXology, Kobo and wherever e-books are sold.
The latest biography comic book joins TidalWave’s ever-growing library of more than 200 comic book biographies. Previous titles have profiled Angelina Jolie, Kamala Harris, Sonia Sotomayor, Michelle Obama, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Condoleezza Rice and Cher. These biographical comics, written by some of the most talented writers in the comic world and beyond, deliver an informed and illustrated look into the lives of these figures.https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/congresswoman-alexandria-ocasio-cortez-life-story-gets-the-comic-book-treatment/https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Female-Force-logo-600x257.pnghttps://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Female-Force-logo-150x64.pngNews
