Takei Appearance In Dick Tracy Comic


George Takei and his husband Brad are guest-starring in the long-running Dick Tracy comic.

The duo is part of a storyline that deals with a seventy-year-old murder mystery.

“Beginning last Sunday (Jan. 13), and continuing for about two months, the Dick Tracy comic strip on Sundays is featuring a storyline involving me and my husband Brad,” said Takei. “I appear under the name ‘George Tawara.’ The story has a WWII internment connection, and we are truly honored to be a part of it.”

The storyline began January 13th, and can be seen here. Takei/Tawara makes his first appearance in the January 20th comic, seen here.

Dick Tracy, created by Chester Gould, has run in newspapers since 1931. Dick Tracy is now created by Mike Curtis and Joe Staton.
