Archie, Veronica, Jughead, Betty, Moose and Midge are getting a new classmate at Riverdale High: Kevin Keller, Archieworld’s first openly gay character.
“Riverdale has always been a safe world for everyone. It just makes sense to have an openly gay character in Archie comic books,” said Archie Comics Co- CEO, Jon Goldwater.
In “Isn’t it Bromantic?” Kevin Keller “is the new hunk in town and Veronica just has to have him.” After Kevin defeats Jughead in a burger-eating contest at Pop’s Chocklit Shoppe, Veronica makes a play for Kevin, while Jughead tries to make sure she doesn’t realize why the new guy just isn’t interested. “Mayhem and hilarity ensue,” according to Archie Comics.
I wonder if Kevin will find romance at Riverdale High.
