Kevin Keller, Archie’s Gay Pal, Gets His Own Comic

Posted by October 26, 2010 Comment

Kevin Keller, the first out gay character in the history of Archie Comics (about twenty to thirty years too late to be frank) has proved such a sales success in the Veronica comic book, that not only did he inspire the company’s first second printing of an Archie comic, but now has his own four issue mini-series by his creator, Dan Parent.

Will this give the company the opportunity to take that second important step – and give Kevin a boyfriend? Or will he have two young men chasing him who he finds difficult to choose between, Barney and Vernon?

Sorry, sorry.

The success, or not, of the series will determine whether or not Kevin will have an ongoing series.

An ongoing series with a male gay lead? Hell, not even Marvel or DC have been that progressive. Looks like Archie are catching up!
