Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) will be starring in her own comic book — as if being subjected to her on social media all day and night weren't enough.

What are the details?

On Wednesday, ABC News reported that Ocasio-Cortez — at least a cartoon rendering of AOC, anyway — will take center stage in a comic book called "Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force: New Party, Who Dis?"

Josh Blaylock, who is the founder of Devil's Due Comics, told the outlet that "New Party, Who Dis?" won't be the only book featuring AOC. He plans to feature the freshman lawmaker in an anthology.

"I have a really, really nice, sweet one that's just like a pleasant commentary on just being excited about things," Blaylock told ABC News.

It isn't all just fun and games, though. There are jokes, too.

"There are some completely absurd, irreverent ones that are really just cathartic venting about, you know, the current climate that we're living in," he added.

The comic book anthology plans to provide "intelligent, unique commentary on current events in a way that only the comic book medium can."

"It's different than reading prose. It's different than watching a movie," he added. "It is something that happens between the panels when a talented comic book artist really knows what they're doing, that can convey information and feelings and a story in a way that you can't do in any other medium."

What else?

Blaylock said it was only a matter of time before somebody made AOC the heroine of her own comic book series, so he thought, hey — why not him?

"I knew ... that the clock was ticking," he said. "If we didn't move forward with this right away, somebody else was going to beat us to the punch."

The series is set to debut in May with "New Party, Who Dis?"
