There's a lot of polarizing chatter on social media, including a bunch of articles.

Forbes published an article, written by Rachel Kramer Bussel, featuring a quote from me and a sneak-peek of the art by Christa Cassano.

"Comic Book About Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Inspired By Her Quoting Alan Moore, Coming Out In May"

Excerpt:

Dean Haspiel, a Brooklyn-based cartoonist and producer of the webcomic The Red Hook, contributed a two-page comic to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force: New Party Who Dis? entitled “Make America Empathetic Again,” drawn by Christa Cassano (see below for an exclusive excerpt). Haspiel told me, “I didn't have a lot to say about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez because she's so green (pun intended) yet refreshing, someone to watch grow. But I did have an idea percolating about Donald Trump that I wanted to convey and I figured out a way to work Ocasio-Cortez into my conceit. Ocasio-Cortez is the catalyst that sparks proactive change and helps makes America empathetic again. I'm very proud of our piece.” Haspiel was also instrumental in connecting Blaylock with many New York-based cartoonists for this project.
