same sex marriage in archie comic

Fantastic!

Back in September, we were thrilled to announce that Archie comics' first openly gay character Kevin Keller is getting married in a January issue of Life With Archie!

Now, the cover for the landmark comic has been revealed (above), and we're LOVING what we're seeing!

We think it's wonderful that publications such as this one are making the effort to show their support of same-sex marriage, and we hope that we see even more of this kind of thing soon!

Can't wait to read all about the big day, Kevin! Good luck!!!!

Hellz to the yes! WERK IT, boy!

Last year, the awesome minds behind the Archie comics introduced its first openly gay character to the series, named Kevin Keller, and to say that he's become quite popular with readers and the LGBT community alike is a pretty big understatement!

IN fact, feedback has been so positive that Kevin will be getting his own monthly comic book, starting next February!

Hey Archie Fans! Kevin Keller Is Getting His Own Mini-Series!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspiration

Oh man! This is excellent news!

Archie comics introduced their readers to Kevin Keller last year, an openly gay teen who ended up prompting almost universal accolades from fans and critics alike, and now, it's being reported that the character will be getting his own four-part miniseries this summer!

Publisher Dan Parent will be writing the comics, which will focus on Kevin's journey before coming out to his friends and family, as well as his positive relationship with his father, as well as his relationships with the other characters in the Archie universe!

According to the San Francisco Chronicle:

“There have been gay characters in other comics, but Keller's role as a friend to Archie, Veronica and the others at Riverdale High is part of the company's push to keep them relevant and contemporary.”

Amazing! And it's clearly working!

The first Veronica comic with him in it sold out completely! It's unreal!

We're so thrilled that the minds behind Archie have taken such positive steps toward bringing a normal, well-adjusted and likable gay teen to the forefront of their stories, and we're excited to see what will come from them with this new mini-series!

Clearly, it's resonating with people and helping confused young people come to terms with parts of themselves that they might not yet understand!

Congrats, guys!

Archie Opens Up About "Leaving" His Label

Filed under: Music MinuteYouTubeDavid Archuleta

Last week, we reported that David Archuleta was dropped from Jive Records after the sales of his last album were less than stellar, to say the least.

At the time, we felt really bad for him, but considering he's so young, we also felt like that being set free from the label might also open him up to create new music without their involvement. Apparently, Archie agrees with us as he's posted a YouTube video, explaining his side of the story of what went down with Jive.

Take a listen to David talk about his "decision" and how its going to affect his career from now on. (above)

So grown up. He's really taking this massive change in stride. Good for him!

Archie Comics Gets Political With Obama Vs. Palin Issue

Even Archie Comics get into politics!

On the cover of the new Archie Comic #616 released on Wednesday, President Obama and Sarah Palin are shown sharing a milkshake together in an issue centering around Archie and his long-time rival Reggie as they battle it out for student-body president.

In the comic, Archie and his girlfriend Veronica are depicted as Obama supporters as they are showing talking environmental issues with the president.

Meanwhile, Reggie is seen as a Palin fan, as he gets his picture taken with the former VP nominee and current reality show star.

As Obama and Palin are showed sharing a milkshake, Archie can be seen in the background, exclaiming, "Wow! I guess anything's possible!"

Very cool. Seems like the old-fashioned comic is trying to become more contemporary.

Thoughts??
