I am a long time lurker and have never posted before oh god, am I doing something wrong, please tell me. However, I have gotten over my longtime fear of ever posting here when realizing in horror that the good folks at s_d have not already posted something amounting to this. That is shocking, what is the world coming to.

Anyway, Archie Comics has announced they will have their first openly gay character debut on September 1st. He is quite hilariously the most 80s metrosexual thing I have seen in a long time.



I like the implication that they don't go the 'oh my GOD you're GAY you kiss BOYS???' route, but rather have all the characters seem pretty okay with it? Though like Scott McCloud has already pointed out, the real tough part will be having their second gay character, not their first.

And I thought it was double entendres about Archie and the blond chick. Whatever works, heh.
