Veteran actor George Takei's graphic memoir "They Called Us Enemy" will be published next year.

The book, written in collaboration with co-writers Justin Eisinger and Steven Scott, and artist Harmony Becker, will be published by Top Shelf Productions Enemy, the publisher said in a statement.

It will revisit the "Star Trek" actor's haunting childhood in American concentration camps, as one of 120,000 Japanese Americans imprisoned by the US government during World War II.

According to the official description, the book is described as "Takei's firsthand account of those years behind barbed wire, the terrors and small joys of childhood in the shadow of legalized racism, his mother's hard choices, his father's tested faith in democracy and the way those experiences planted the seeds for his astonishing future."

Eisinger and Scott will be discussing the book at the panel "The Human Condition: Connecting Humanity with Graphic Novels" during the Comic-Con International.
