George Takei Visits Riverdale in November
Riverdale, set your phasers to stunning and boldly go where no celebrity has gone before. George Takei heads to Riverdale this November in Kevin Keller #6. Kevin meets his hero, Star Trek’s Mr. Sulu in the comic book written and drawn by Dan Parent.
Parent pitched the idea after meeting Takei at a convention and Takei loved the idea. Keller is Archie’s first openly gay character while Takei is a gay icon who has amassed a massive following.
This is the first celebrity to appear in this series, but not the first to come to Riverdale or Archie Comics. Football star Michael Strahan, rockers KISS, President Obama and Sarah Palin have all visited Riverdale.
