Archie Comics announced Thursday that Riverdale High will enroll its first openly gay character in September. Yet look at the cover to Betty and Me #16. I think there's been some experimenting going on for a while now.
The new character, a blond newbie named Kevin Keller, will debut in No. 202 of Veronica Comics. In the initial story line, titled "Isn't It Bromantic?," Veronica is stymied when her womanly wiles hold no sway with Kevin, who has more in common with fellow foodie Jughead.
