    Archie comics is going to have its first openly gay character, Kevin Kellner.

    He will make his first appearance in Veronica 202 coming out (no pun intended) in September 2010.

    I guess it reflects the times but I never expected Archie to have a gay character. Hell, they have few minorities, Chuck Clayton, his dad and his girlfriend are the only ones that come to mind.

    I suspect a crapstorm will arise out of this decision by Archie Comics Inc.

    Why it wouldnt be the first gay comic character. Maybe in the Archies Comics, but you know, if people never made a big deal otu of it, it wouldnt be a big deal.

    Well you know Archie stands for good old fashioned family values, so I am surprised there will be such a character.

    I am not opposed to him, just more shocked.

    Then again, most reading likely won't know what gay means.

    Ahhh, well i was just wondering. Well if the younger kids read it, sure they might know, but people with agenda do will see lots of problems with it.

    I can see Jughead as a leather daddy.

    I pretty much hate you but that was funny.

    I see Reggie more that way though.

    It's not the first gay character...just first openly gay character.

    One of my co-workers reads Archie at work, so one day when I was bored I picked it up. And I'll tell you. What a ****ty comic series.

    Although Archie could bang 2 chicks at the same time. So props to him.

    I had no idea the Archie comic still existed. But then, I seldom read the funny pages even as a kid.

    Jughead isn't gay. He's just more interested in food than anything else.

    That said, I always thought Big Ethel was a lesbo.

    I really don't know why it should...

    I mean, most fans of the Archie comic books are gay... it's a proven scientific fact...

    I'm pretty sure "Alice The Goon" and "Sea Hag" from Popeye were bushwhackers too?

    Why would sexual preference ever be relevant in a comic book?

    Gooood question. It's not like there's a large "gay teens who read comic books" market to tap.

    Interesting. This can't be the first gay character to ever be introduced in a Comic. What about the Ambigously Gay Duo?
