  1. I thought he got married to a black guy (???) Did they divorce? Is he cheating? Has he been ret-conned? Is that Veronica sticking up for him? So many questions...

  4. @Jack Ford, I don't read Archie comics but I've been following stories about their Kevin Keller character. Apparently Archie comics does "possible future" stories of what happens to their teenage characters as adults. In the future, Kevin Keller is a wounded war veteran who marries another man, a black doctor (I think).

    In the story excerpted above he's still in high school.

  5. "I'm sorry, ma'am. You're right. I shouldn't have upset you in front of your children. With your short fuse, I imagine they already suffer enough."

  6. Yes, there are two storylines. The main one still has Kevin as a teenager; the other is part of a double "alternate future" issue, one in which Archie married Betty and the other in which he married Veronica. In both of these future timelines Kevin has a handsome African-American husband named Clay.

    I almost feel sorry for that mother; as anyone who's ever read an "Archie" comic knows, bad BAD things happen to you when you piss off Veronica Lodge.

  7. If only the comic weren't so banal in general.
