On this very important episode of the I Read Comic Books podcast, Brian, Kait, and Kara discuss They Called Us Enemy, our November Goodreads Book of the Month! Author George Takei (best known for his role as Hikaru Sulu on Star Trek: The Original Series) opens up about his childhood spent in the internment camps the United Stated government sent west coast Japanese Americans to following the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Equal parts touching and horrifying, this graphic novel memoir is high on our recommendation list for absolutely everyone. Seriously, if you first heard the term “Japanese internment camp” right now, please read this graphic novel immediately.
