If the image of Bernie Sanders dressed as He-Man got you wondering if we’re doing a late April Fool’s Joke, no. That’s an actual thing. Chicago-based publisher Devil’s Due Comics will release a new one-shot comic book titled Talk Bernie to Me! The Bernie Sanders Special and AOC Surprise on July 3. Details on the actual story are sparse, but promises to give the two-time presidential candidate a chance to be a comic book superhero.
This is not entirely unprecedented, because Devil’s Due Comics previously gave the same treatment to another politician, namely Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Sales of Talk Bernie to Me! are for a good cause. A portion of the sales will go to ACLU and RaicesTexas.org, which provide free and low cost legal services to under-served immigrant children, families, and refugees.
