George Takei makes an appearance in Archie comic

Mr. Sulu in Riverdale? Oh my! Actor and equal rights advocate George Takei, whose portrayal of the “Star Trek” character on television and in films has made him a science fiction legend, is crossing a new frontier this week by appearing as himself in issue No. 6 of Archie Comics’ ‘‘Kevin Keller,’’ a series about Riverdale’s only gay teenager. Takei, who is also gay, said his appearance in the issue that is released Wednesday dovetails nicely with his real-life advocacy for equal rights because it helps bring home his message that anyone can aspire to be what they want to be no matter who they are.
