We’re not ones for endorsement of products on this predominately photo based blog, but sometimes we make exceptions. When friend of R-B, Colby Keller, alerted me that his distant cousin, Kevin Keller, would be getting his own hardcover graphic novel my comic-nerd alert activated. The first gay character in the Archie-verse was not only groundbreaking, but rather entertaining to boot. If history repeats, I’d order a copy of this stat. I promise, you can trust Colby + us.
Kevin Keller is the first openly gay character in the history of Archie Comics and currently stars in his own best-selling series of comic books. In this special paper-over-board novel, we focus on Kevin’s early, awkward years and the struggles and joys of his inspirational road to self-discovery. This sweet and funny coming-of-age story features a strong anti-bullying message and is a perfect gift for Archie fans, parents, and anyone who has—or is—struggling to find their place.
