You know George Takei (and by the way, it’s pronounced “tah-kay” not “tah-kai”) from Heroes, Star Trek, Mulan, The Simpsons, many other shows, and his role as an Asian-American and LGBT activist. He’s an interesting person with a life full of adventure and tragedy, and now we’re going to experience it in graphic novel form published by IDW!
During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Takei said: “When the opportunity to tell my story in the form of a graphic novel presented itself, I recognized the value in making it easily accessible for our youth to discover and digest the material, bringing attention to an important and relevant issue, while preserving it for generations to come… We live in uncertain times, and if stories such as mine can inspire us to do better and encourage positive change, I want to share it with as many people as possible, no matter who they are, or where they come from.”
The as-yet-untitled graphic novel will involve creators Justin Eisinger and Steven Scott. Publishing is scheduled for 2018.
