George Takei Beams Into Archie Comics To Meet Gay Fanboy

George Takei will make a special guest appearance in Archie Comics when he meets his super gay super fan Kevin Keller.

At school, the kids have to do presentations on the people that inspire them the most and Kevin chooses George Takei, naturally.

Kevin details George’s childhood in a Japanese internment camp and of course his intergalactic  journey on Star Trek. Kevin also praises Takei for his LGBT advocacy and just for being a “really cool guy.”

Meanwhile, unbeknownst to Kevin, the legendary Mr. Sulu is in town for the Smithville Comic Con. Quel surprise!

Will Kevin get to meet his idol?!

Well, duh. But so can you, if you live in New York!

Mr. Takei will be at Midtown Comics on Wednesday night signing issues of Kevin Keller #6. So you actual super gay super fanboys can show that Kevin Keller how it’s done in three dimensions.

    Are these comics set in the 50s? Because it’s a long time since George looked that young.

    @EdWoody: Who cares. I think it is totally cool. It is a comic book, which for the most part is timeless. Right on George, you go girl!!!!!!

    I always had a boner for Spock, but who didn’t? Kirk was built wrong and could not act his way out of a wet paper bag. Spock was built and had smarts. So did Sulu, that man could handle a sword. Shitner sorry Shat-nerd was the only fly in that soup.

    Everyone should take the opportunity to come to the conclusion that ARCHIE IS PROGRESSIVE AND ACTUALLY TRIES TO KEEP WITH THE TIMES.
