New Frontiers: The Many Worlds of George Takei, the Anthology

Thanks to editors Jeff Yang and Keith Chow, I had the fortunate opportunity to be a part of this anthology that is filled with stories inspired by George Takei's life involving different landscapes of cultural diversity, as well as being introduced to artist Yehudi Mercado.

The production time was very fast-paced, but fortunately Yehudi and I were on the same page for the story we wanted to tell. Yehudi and I were able to create wonderful paralleling stories that connect two generations through similar experiences titled, There's Always Tomorrow. Click here if you want to get your own copy.

"This original graphic novel anthology is inspired by the life and legacy of George Takei and is the companion book to the JANM exhibition of the same name. NEW FRONTIERS uses Takei's incredible journey as a launching pad for the imaginations of a breathtaking array of diverse creators — Asian, black, Hispanic and Native American; lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans — to tell original stories about incarceration and exclusion, representation and resistance, the digital world and the struggle in the streets.
