The highly-anticipated gay wedding issue of Archie Comics has finally been revealed.
The January issue’s cover illustration shows Kevin Keller, Riverdale’s first openly gay character who is also an active U.S. military officer, tying the knot with his African-American partner, Clay Walker.
It should also be noted that because of his astronomical success, Keller will be getting his ongoing series in February.
How Archie seems to get it (and get it right) while other comic book companies pay lip service to diversity amazes me to no end.
And my internet wife RVC Bard made the best point: constantly amazed that mainstream kid-friendly shit gets it right when so much of m/m fic gets it all wrong
Archie Comics: DOING IT RIGHT!!!!!!!!
Like I needed another reason to fall in love with this character.
