Gay Archie character to get married

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Just one year after introducing Kevin Keller, the first openly Gay character in Archie comics, the series officials have announced he will tie the knot with his Mr. Right.

A press release from Archie Comics announced, 'The amazingly popular Kevin Keller is featured in the 20-something world of Life With Archie. Kevin followed in his father's footsteps and is returning to Riverdale as a war hero, but that's not all - it's Kevin's wedding day! The whole gang turns out for Kevin Keller's wedding as we discover how Kevin met 'Mr. Right.' It's not all hearts and flowers, however. Unfortunately, this all occurs during the separation of Archie and Veronica. Archie Comics presents the wedding event of the year ... again!'

Introduced in April 2010 in Veronica #202, the character went on to become one of the franchise's most popular, with his own miniseries this summer and a subsequent regular series planned for February of next year.

The character's nuptials were mentioned in July, but it wasn't until September 14 that the series' publisher announced that Kevin would wed in an issue out January 4.

When the mini-series was announced, its author, Dan Parent, said, 'The world of Riverdale has to reflect contemporary culture and to show it is an accepting, diverse place. And that's why Kevin is important, to show that everybody is welcome in this all-American town we've embraced for over 70 years.'

The wedding announcement comes months after the series 'brought' President Obama and Sarah Palin to Riverdale to get involved in a fierce student council election, injecting politics into the generally non-controversial series.

John Goldwater, the publisher's co-CEO, said, 'Even people on different ends of the political spectrum have some common ground. At their core, their values, both Obama and Palin want the same thing: what's best for America. What better place to find it than Riverdale?'
