IDW Publishing Launches Spanish-Language Initiative

IDW Publishing has announced a Spanish-language initiative to translate their most popular titles into Spanish. The program was announced by George Takei at a National Council of Teachers of English event on Thursday, revealing that They Called Us Enemy, his best-selling graphic novel memoir will be among the first titles to be translated to Spanish.

Takei said:

“It’s been my life’s mission to tell the story of the cruel and unjust incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II, and I’m so honored by the outpouring of support for my graphic memoir, They Called Us Enemy. Having made this powerful tool for reaching young readers, I am thrilled to make the story accessible to a community that right now—today—is facing attacks that are all too familiar. This edition is especially meaningful to me since I was raised in the Spanish-speaking community of East L.A., which welcomed my family after our years of imprisonment.”

Other IDW titles besides They Called Us Enemy to be translated include Sonic the Hedgehog and Red Panda & Moon Bear. The program is set to launch in June 2020.
