First Archie Comics got its first gay character, Kevin Keller. Now, it’s about to show its first gay marriage. “Life with Archie” depicts Archie as a 20-something; and in issue #16, coming in January, the whole gang attends Kevin’s wedding. According to reports, Kevin returns from the war to Riverdale to marry his male partner just as Archie is separating from his wife Veronica.
