Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), one of the front-runners for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, is getting the superhero treatment in a new comic book.

The comic, titled “Talk Bernie To Me,” is a one-off issue from Devil’s Due Comics to be released in July and depicts Sanders as He-Man, going shirtless and holding a sword in front of the White House.

{mosads}Sanders is also wearing a chest plate with “$27” emblazoned on it, representing the average individual donation to his campaign.

“I’ve been increasingly impressed with Sanders’ ingenuity and ability to be on the right side of history — even when it’s not the popular thing to do — from his fights for civil rights and healthcare many decades ago, to the introduction of the recent Stop BEZOS Act and Stop WALMART Act,” publisher Josh Blaylock said in a press release announcing the new comic.

Sanders is the second political figure to get their own comic book from Devil’s Due Comics, following fellow progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

The Sanders comic will also include content featuring Ocasio-Cortez.

A portion of all sales will go toward the ACLU and RaicesTexas.org, a group that provides immigrant children and families free and discounted legal services.
