Archie comics to introduce first gay character

Now it won't be only about Archie, Veronica and Betty. The world’s oldest teenager comic book is to introduce its first openly gay character Kevin Keller, announced the publisher on Friday.

"The introduction of Kevin is just about keeping the world of Archie Comics current and inclusive. Archie's hometown of Riverdale has always been a safe world for everyone. It just makes sense to have an openly gay character in Archie comic books," said Jon Goldwater of Archie Comics on its official blogsite http://www.archiecomics. com/blog/news/

The Veronica #202 edition will introduce Kevin as the new hunk in town and Veronica just has to have him in the full-issue story Isn't it Bromantic?
