Preview: Kevin Keller Becomes a Superhero
Kevin Keller, the first openly gay character in the Archie Comics universe, takes on a new role in issue #14 of his eponymous comic when he stops a crime… and becomes a superhero. As we noted when the news broke earlier this year, Kevin doesn’t have superpowers; like Batman, he’s an ordinary guy who works hard at it. There’s something very Archie about that. Anyway, Kevin’s new persona is The Equalizer, and he’ll be doing this for at least a couple of issues, kicking off with Kevin Keller #14, which is out in comic shops today. Here’s a first look—enjoy!
