News of Kevin Keller, the first gay character in Archie comic books, is sure to surprise avid readers. For the first time in the favorite comic series' history, a gay student will enroll at Riverdale High School.

Kevin Keller is slated to make his first appearance in the 'Veronica' digests as a new love interest for the rich heiress. His introduction will have the scheming Veronica hatching all sorts of plans to woo him, but to no avail.

For Archie fans, I think you'll look forward to reading about Veronica's reaction when she discovers why she can't charm the new boy in town.
