Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force Get a #2 Squad Special Comic, Out in December.

It was a problem for Devil's Due Publishing and their first Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez comic book, that despite nationwide publicity, they couldn't get the comic book stocked in many comic shops – which saw them selling thousands of copies directly through the post.

This time they are getting a head start and letting people make pre-orders for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force #2 Squad Special, out in December.

The first issue got added attention when DC Comics set them a cease and desist letter over an exclusive retailer variant cover that made Cortez up as Wonder Woman. Maybe this time they could do the whole Justice League?

 This time, the anthology will feature stories inspired by "The Squad" – Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). Partial proceeds of the standard variant are going to immigrant charities RAICES Texas and Second Families. For the MF variant, 100% of the profits will be going to both charities.
