Gay Kevin Joins Archie, Pals

The Detroit Free Press

Archie Comics announced Wednesday that it's introducing the strip's first openly gay character. His name is Kevin Keller, and rumor has it that he's a strapping, blond hottie who draws the immediate attention of Veronica and who wrestles with how to gently rebuff her flirtations.

Co-CEO Jon Goldwater says the move is "just about keeping the world of Archie Comics current and inclusive," adding that the new character makes sense because "Riverdale has always been a safe world for everyone."

Kevin is slated to make his first appearance in September.
