Archie Comics has been breaking barriers with their gay character Kevin Keller. Now, in a flash forward story, ARCHIE-COMICS-REVEALED.jpgwe will see Kevin get married. reports:

The cover of the January 2012 edition of Life With Archie , in which Archie's gay friend Kevin Keller gets married to his African American boyfriend, has just been released (shown above).

It will be the first gay wedding to be depicted in an Archie comic. (The plot was originally announced in September.) Readers will learn how Kevin met his fiancé, Clay Walker, in a military hospital after being wounded while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

The marriage will happen in Life With Archie #16. This a great thing for the comic book world to be so progressive. Please keep it going.
