Over the years, Archie Comics hasn’t changed very much, but now the company is bringing the teens at Riverdale high into the 21st century. In 2010, it introduced it first openly-gay character, Kevin Keller, in No. 202 of Veronica Comics. By popular demand, Kevin had his own 4-issue mini-series. Then, in February of 2012, he got his own series, with Kevin Keller #1.
In that first regular series issue, it’s Kevin’s first time as class president. He also gets published in Riverdale’s school paper for the first time, and has his first date ever. The issue focuses on the fact that the good-looking, mild mannered Kevin doesn’t have a clue about dating. But the Riverdale gang, along with friends and family, prepare him for a date with a cute boy named Brian.
