Kevin Keller is the First Archie Comics Character to Admit He's Gay

Monday, April 26, 2010

It's always good to know that comic book writers make an effort to at least bridge the gap between real life and comic books. Now with Archie's marriage proposals going all out Riverdale will get it's first openly gay character in the form of Kevin Keller which will be introduced in Veronica #202. Of course you can expect the usual stuff like Veronica ditching Archie to go after Kevin and a couple more twists here and there. Check on the break if you want to see more of gay Kevin Keller.

He probably has wash board abs hiding under that shirt. Here's a clip from Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater:
"The introduction of Kevin is just about keeping the world of Archie Comics current and inclusive. Archie's hometown of Riverdale has always been a safe world for everyone. It just makes sense to have an openly gay character in Archie comic books."
