Archie Comics’ gay kiss a poke at real controversy

It's just a quick kiss, but it's a long step forward for Archie Comics' only openly gay character Kevin Keller.

The Riverdale teen finds his life turned upside down after locking lips with his boyfriend, Devon, in Pop Tate's diner, drawing the ire of at least one disapproving Riverdale mom.

The woman "gets very offended and kind of pitches a bit of a fit," said Dan Parent, who writes and draws the issue, "Kevin Keller" No. 10 that is released Aug. 7.

"Kevin is kind of used to that, but Veronica records the whole thing anrvd of course uploads it to the Riverdale equivalent of YouTube and that starts a bit of a debate," said Parent.
