Gay Comic Character gets His Mini-Series

Archie's Kevin Keller gets his own 4 part mini-series.

The four-issue series shows how Keller arrived in Riverdale, where he's become close pals with Archie and the gang. But it will also deal with heavier fare than the typical "Archie" comic -- including how the character struggled with coming out to his parents, and bullying. 

If the title does as well as Archie co-CEO Jon Goldwater expects, it could lead to an ongoing series for the character, whose presence in the imaginary town would have been unthinkable not long ago. "This is the most important book this company has released in 70 years," Goldwater said. 
Sounds exciting, I hope these are good stories to read about.
