I read comics and when I read they were introducing a gay character in Archie, I had to read it. I give Archie credit for not only having a gay character but creating a new guy and not just retconning somebody - though Reggie did always wear a Speedo and have a bitchy side. But Kevin is way too perfect in a universe full of imperfect characters. Most parents in Archie's universe often seem like they want to starngle their kids, but not Kevin's. I like how he is out but would rather have a flawed character than a boring one. I think a lot of readers, especially younger ones, are going to get bored by a guy who succeeds at everything he does.
