[Solicitations] George Takei to tell true story of Japanese American Internment Camps in new graphic novel from IDW
Pop culture icon and man of the people, George Takei, has signed a book publishing deal with IDW Publishing.
Or – “Because We’re All Expecting It, I’m’a Get This Outta The Way: OH, MY!” Kevin Keller may be new to Riverdale, but the boy has excellent taste in his pop culture. But what would bring a real-world TV and film legend to the microcosm of Riverdale, USA? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Press Release 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.
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!)
