Archie Comics sent us an exclusive look at the variant cover for the new cross-over with the one and only George Takei.
Ever since the introduction of Kevin Keller as an openly gay character in 2010, Archie has consistently done social commentary with a light-hearted twist. From their landmark interracial gay marriage to a battle of the bands with KISS to gender-bending the entire cast for Archina, they’ve breathed modern life into the 71-year-old world of Riverdale.
When the gang gets a school assignment to write about a person who has inspired them, Kevin chooses George Takei, the legendary Star Trek actor who came out several years ago.
When Kevin hears that he’s at a local convention, he recruits Jughead to go with him, unaware that Mr. Takei, moved by Kevin’s article, has made a trip to Riverdale to pay him a visit. Kevin rushes to meet up with his idol, but will he make it in time?
