Despite protests from groups like One Million Moms, the Kevin Keller issue of Life With Archie that featured Keller’s same-sex wedding has sold out.
In the comic, Kevin, the series’ first gay character, marries a male doctor he met following injuries sustained in the armed forces. The storyline began with a friendship in the hospital and blossomed into a romance.
According to Archie Comics’ co-CEO Jon Goldwater, the gay character is here to stay. “Kevin will always be a major part of Riverdale, and we’re overjoyed, honored and humbled by the response to this issue. Our fans have come out full force to support Kevin. He is, without a doubt, the most important new character in Archie history.”
