San Diego Comic-Con 2015 has added another famous face to its guest lineup: Kazuki Takahashi.
Takahashi is known as the creator of Yu-Gi-Oh!, the popular manga series-turned-multimedia franchise. Takahashi wrote and illustrated the original manga series, which ran in Shonen Jump magazine from 1996 to 2004. Since Yu-Gi-Oh has expanded into anime, feature films, table top games, and more, Takahashi has remained involved with his creation as a creative supervisor.
