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