This is INCREDIBLE news!
The Archie comics have already shown how up with the times they are by introducing the openly gay character Kevin Keller - and then MARRYING him - and now, they've gone one step further by announcing that the beloved Riverdale teens will be meeting up with some other famous famous in cartoon form…from Glee!
That's right, according to co-chief executive officer Jon Goldwater, a crossover between the smash series and the comic book is set for the end of this year or early 2013, and that staff writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will be penning the story!

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!
Jon Goldwater, co-chief executive of Archie, says:

HELLZ TO THE YES!
We're delighted to report that the Archie issue introducing the comic series' first gay character, Kevin Keller, has SOLD OUT its first print run!
Archie Comics Co-CEO Jon Goldwater says:
"We never thought Kevin Keller would become so hot so fast!"
Due to its heavy demand, the company will now be releasing a limited edition version of the comic, which will feature a new, remastered cover!
And don't worry, Kevin will be back in new issues, as well!
Amazing! Hurray for Kevin Keller!
