At this past July's Comic-Con International in San Diego, Archie Comics announced that not only would its exceedingly popular new character, Kevin Keller, the first openly homosexual member of the iconic Riverdale Gang, will star in his own ongoing series, but that readers would also see Keller get married in a future issue of Life With Archie. The publisher announced this week that the happy event will take place in Life With Archie #16, on sale in January.

Not a lot of people reading Archie Comics...too Gay.
I’m more shocked they still publish Archie than I am that they’d have an openly gay character.
What next? Betty an unwed mother?
One thing is for sure. It won’t be very popular in NY 9!
I always had my suspicions about Jughead.
Archie Comics are a little slice of Americana. So naturally the left feels obligated to tarnish it.
For decades, Archie Comics went out of its way to avoid controversy. I wonder if there has been some changes in management...i.e, liberal freak nephew taking over for old uncle or some such. why else endanger a 70+ year franchise?
Mind’s Eye Bleach .. PLEASE!!!!
Me Too! Who knew this comic book was still in print? I thought the Dobie Gillis TV show snuffed out Archie and the Gals in 1959!
Nobody reads the crap anyway. I always found it boring. Good riddance. Hopefully they just end up shutting down.
>>> Not a lot of people reading Archie Comics...too Gay.
Not too gay. Too expensive. Comics generally have priced themselves out of their old general market and moved into older demographic comic book shop sales.
This whole fiasco seems kind of queer to me.
I haven’t read comic books since 8th grade, and it seems most comic book readers are in their twenties or older. So it makes sense that they are making them more political, and more PC, since anyone who’s still reading this stuff at that age has a desperate need to belong to SOME group.
I wonder if any other characters in Archie are married, or if the only time anyone’s ever gotten married has been a gay character. No, don’t trouble yourself looking, I don’t care that much.
I hope they through in depression, multiple partners, and AIDS for realism.
so sad...I had to stop reading Archie years ago because it got so politically correct.
I'd laugh until I was passing out...
If they are born that way, it's a birth defect. Is anyone working on a genetic test, so we can stamp it out with an abortion? You would think that the "pro-choice" side would be all for this.
May just as well perform sodomy as well. Doesn’t really matter as the audience for this rag is gay. They’re already insane, might as well have their own insane comic.
So the poop-sexers have found yet another wholesome thing to dirty up?
