George Takei En Route To Riverdale

by

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.
