Archie Comics’ First Gay Wedding
Beelding Cool ^ | September 14, 2011 | Rich Johnston

Posted on 09/14/2011 11:29:32 AM PDT by Eyes Unclouded

Can you believe such a comic book could have existed from Archie Comics just a few years ago?

In Life With Archie #16, which looks at the world of a twenty-somthing Archie cast has recently created gay character Kevin Keller returning from war to get married to his partner in Riverdale. And everyone turns up to the ceremony… just as Archie is separating from his wife, Veronica.

Is this proof that gay marriage does destroy traditional marriage after all? Written by Paul Kupperburg, drawn by Fernando Ruiz, Pat Kennedy, Tim Kennedy, Al Milgrom, Bob Smith with a cover from Batman’s Norm Breyfogle, Life With Archie #16 will be available for sale for the first week of January 2012.

The character in question is a veteran so the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell angle gets some traction in the story as well.

Archie has been a bit questionable for a while.

Thank you Lord for letting me grow up in the 60’s and 70’s before all this pc bulls**t took over.

In your dreams, pal. Sadly, the reality of lesbians in real life never matches up to the fantasy. Plaid work shirts, fat bodies and severe haircuts. Except for their legs.

Shoulda gone with Betty to begin with, Arch. I always liked her better.

Sorry to hear it. I guess I missed Archie’s marriage to Veronica, too.

It’s been a LONG time since I’ve seen one of these comics.

If they really wanted to be “cutting edge”, they should have Archie marry Muhammad.

I remember when they had Christian-themed Archie comic books where the Bible and conservative values were emphasized.

When I was young I used to buy Archie comics. Now if my kid showed up with one in the house, that would be a catalyst for a deep talk on why Archie is unacceptable.

But I guess Archie isn’t for kids anymore... is that the message of the owners? Because the ones buying this comic will be gays and... well, gays and perhaps uniformed parents.

Have Archie Comics been sold? They actually seemed to be of a Christian bent the last time I saw one.

I left Archie at a young age for the more deliberately absurd Hot Stuff and Little Lotta.

OUCH!

Of course, back then "beat off" had a different meaning.

BTW- Betty has a nice bum ;)

As I said in a previous posting a few weeks ago, we have to have a website to warn parents about all the up coming assaults in movies, tv shows (Chaz Bono on Dancing With the Stars), youth books and now comic books. They will not stop with their maniacal propaganda war.

Gia Carangi or Amber Heard might have disputed that but who cares. I'm sure your fashion and styling expertise would exceed theirs.

>>> just as Archie is separating from his wife, Veronica.

Now that is news to me. When did Archie and Veronica get married? Last I hard about Archie’s age the company was going to reset them back several years younger into tweenies. There was a thread on it three years ago or thereabouts.

I have a vague recollection of a time when “comic books” actually used to be funny.
