Riverdale, which premieres tonight on the CW is a campy mystery thriller based off the Archie comics that began all the way back in 1939! With a contemporary twist Complex dubbed the series, the new “O.C. with murder”, and that alone should get you titillated. Something different about this incarnation of the series is the inclusion of a new gay character Kevin Keller.
Back in 2010 Kevin Keller became Archie Comics’ latest breakout star when his arrival in Veronica issue #202 became the only Archie comic in the company’s history to sell out. Since then he has gone on to headline his own mini-series and is currently starring in his own digital title, Life With Kevin, which explores Kevin’s post-Riverdale life as a journalist in New York.
