Kevin Keller, Riverdale's new out pupil, is one of 50 new students transferring to Riverdale High this fall due to school closures. Kevin will be the first gay character Archie Comics has introduced since its inception in 1942. Expect his debut in No. 202 of Veronica Comics.
According to Victor Gorelick, editor in chief of Archie Comics, none of the talent working on the Kevin storyline is gay, so it'll be interesting how Kevin's story progresses.
