After the release of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force, Devil’s Due Comics is doubling down on progressive politics and populist movements by forming a new imprint dedicated to them with Ballot Box Comics.
Devil’s Due Publisher Josh Blaylock says:
We’ve never thought of comics books as being limited to a specific genre. They’re a powerful medium for all kinds of stories to be told. And with Ballot Box Comics, we’re excited to create engaging content with a political leaning, that pushes back against this administration’s off-the-rails status quo.
This is really putting money where your mouth is. It’s one thing to release a comic about a super popular congresswoman in an effort to capture some of that heat. It’s quite another to form an entire imprint around causes like social equality and standing up to government corruption. Ballot Box Comics seeks to challenge the right and the center-left with its titles.
Ballot Box Comics’ flagship release is the trade paperback collection of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force, coming in April 2020. It’s currently available for pre-order at OcasioComic.com. No specifics yet as to what’s next for the imprint.
