Gay Marriage Issue Of Archie Sells Out, Despite One Million Mom Pressure

Posted by March 1, 2012 Comment

The One Million Moms may have demanded that Toys R Us remove the Life With Archie comic, featuring a future Kevin Keller marrying his intended. But it looks like Toys R Us probably won’t have been able to comply. Because customers beat them to it by buying the comic.

Life With Archie #16 has sold out from Archie Comics. John Goldwater, co-CEO of Archie Comics, already gaining praise from his comments regarding the Million Mom appeal, is quoted as saying Kevin will always be a major part of Riverdale, and we’re overjoyed, honored and humbled by the response to this issue. Our fans have come out full force to support Kevin. He is, without a doubt, the most important new character in Archie history. He’s here to stay.”
