Jim Lee Knows How to Get to Sesame Street

Jim Lee has revealed that he’ll be appearing on Sesame Street his Thanksgiving. He’ll be one of the individuals welcoming the newest resident to Sesame Street, a 7-year-old Korean-American girl named Ji-Young.

Lee wrote on Facebook:

It’s crazy and surreal to even write these words but as a young immigrant boy who literally learned English from reading comic books AND watching Sesame Street—I can say this is a dream I hadn’t ever imagined even possible. Who would have guessed back when I started my comics career as a 21 year old artist that I would get the opportunity decades later to hang with Tamir, Ji-Young, @alanathoopers, @elmo and Abby Cadabby as part of #SeeUsComingTogether, a star-studded TV special celebrating Asian and Pacific Islander identities and the power of community!?!

He described the opportunity as a “career high”.

The celebration takes place Thanksgiving day, November 25th, on HBO Max and PBS.
