Archie Over the Rainbow

One of my classmates in a Library Science course had paid some of her dues by working for Archie Comics, publishers of the various Archie comics and their spinoffs. She told me that the company was just as old fashioned and patriarchal as you’d expect of a company that has been mass producing comics about the same high school love triangle for the past sixty years. So I never, never expected to see this:

From Bleeding Cool: “This is the new cover to the upcoming Life With Archie #16, the comic which envisions possible futures for Archie characters. And this upcoming issue features the gay inter racial wedding of soldier Kevin Keller and his intended. On the cover. Of an Archie comic.”
