Archie’s Pal Kevin Keller Wins His Own Mini-Series
According to a press release issued by Archie Comics, their newest character, Kevin Keller, is about to get his own four-issue mini-series.
Riverdale’s first openly gay man, Kevin Keller debuted last month in Veronica #202, the first Archie title to sell out and go into a same-month second printing on the direct sales market. His debut follows a number of chancy moves by the
America’s only remaining family-owned major comics house, including an
interracial kiss several months ago on the cover of Archie #608. Some of the most interesting events in recent comics history have come from those folks.
The Kevin Keller series will written and drawn by his creator, Dan Parent. “Kevin Keller has become larger than life!,” Archie Comics Co-CEO Jon Goldwater. “We are bringing him back with all the bells and whistles.”
Archie Comics notes the obvious: if this series does well, Kevin Keller would likely get an ongoing series.
