The Archie universe is getting spicier this year as Dan Parent the Archie artist of twenty years plus for the first time introduces Kevin Keller a gay character into Riverdale. The recent relevant and daring plots to Archie comics are based mostly on stunt but also a springboard for new ideas to lure new readers and old ones who forgot about their old Riverdale friends. Archie comics has always been the training wheels of comic book readers from the ages 8-12 audience and now are teetering on adult themes as opposed to gag oriented panels.

“The reaction is going to be, there isn’t going to be a reaction — it’s just going to be acceptance,” -Dan Parent.
