I’m pleasantly surprised to find Archie Comics remaining on the cutting edge of pop culture and issue awareness these days, and their profile is about to be raised a little higher come November, as Kevin Keller meets Star Trek icon and activist George Takei! In Kevin Keller #6, Kevin comes face-to-face with his lifelong hero, and I have to say that George looks awesome Archie-style. After KISS, President Obama and Captain Sulu, who will be the next to hit Riverdale? (Fingers crossed for a Katy Perry/Josie and the Pussycats crossover!)
UPDATE: Take the jump for the full cover image and solicitation information.
The story will be written and drawn by Kevin creator Dan Parent, who pitched the idea to Takei at a chance convention meeting. Takei loved the idea and it soon became a reality.
