George Takei to Visit Riverdale!

Oh My!!! This was kind of fun news today. I learned that original Star Trek actor, George Takei, will be making a guest star appearance early next year in KEVIN KELLER #6:
According to BuzzFeed, cartoonist Dan Parent met the actor at a comic convention, where he pitched him the idea of the cameo so Kevin, Riverdale’s first gay resident, could meet his hero. Takei was thrilled.

Takei, who’s best known for playing Sulu on the original Star Trek series and in six movies, revealed he’s gay in a 2005 magazine interview. He married his longtime partner Brad Altman in 2008, and has been vocal on issues of marriage equality, homophobia and bullying.
I have no idea what the story will be about, but I can't wait to read it!
