Now Archie Comics Brings Us Gay Marriage

Kevin Keller is Archie Comics’ only out gay character. The fact that he exists is a major jump in thinking for the company. Then he got his first mini-series, now an ongoing comic series starring the character.

Then today at the Gays In Comics panel at San Diego Comic Con, his creator Dan Parent told the crowd that in the Future Archie stories, Kevin Keller will be portrayed as married with a same-sex spouse.

Which means that Archie Comics will get at least one more out gay character too. And a gay marriage.

Five years ago could you have imagined such a thing?
