Archie Comics, one of the leading children’s comic book publishers and the home to some of the most recognizable pop culture characters in the world, including Archie, Betty and Veronica, Jughead, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Josie and the Pussycats, is proud to announce the in-store signing event of KEVIN KELLER #6, which features the most publicized Archie character in years meeting his idol, Star Trek’s GEORGE TAKEI, who is a prominent guest star in this issue.
The signing will take place at the world famous Midtown Comics in Times Square on the evening of December 5, 2012, the day of the comic’s release. Midtown has played host to countless signings of the comic book industry’s top writers and artists over the years and can now add George Takei to that list, who ranks as one of their most high profile guests.
“We’re thrilled and honored that George is appearing in Kevin Keller,” said Archie Comics Co-CEO Jon Goldwater. “As a lifelong Star Trek fan, having him appear in an Archie comic is a dream come true. We can’t wait for Kevin to come face-to-face with his hero.”
Archie has become known for the tradition of welcoming real life celebrities and pop culture icons into Riverdale from President Obama to rock band KISS to the upcoming GLEE crossover. George Takei is the first superstar to appear in the Kevin Keller title and there isn’t anyone more fitting to lend his star power.
