I've written before about Kevin Keller, the gay character whom Archie Comics introduced this past year in an issue of VERONICA.  He proved popular enough in his initial appearance that Archie Comics gave him a four-issue limited series, which is currently running.

Well there's more, Riverdale fans.  Archie has announced that starting next February, Kevin will get his own ongoing series.

Jon Goldwater, the co-chief exectutive of Archie Comics, says that the reader response to Keven has been very positive with only seven cancellations.  His own comic will establish Kevin as his class's president, and he will also appear as a supporting character in other titles.  The Alternate Future "Life With Archie" series, in which a post-high school Archie is married to Veronica, will show Kevin married too.

And if that weren't dismaying enough to the Religious Right, in an unrelated move, Archie Comics will also be publishing a four-issue limited series in which Archie Meets KISS.   Man; does it mean I'm old that I find that depressing?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
