Very cool, I read Archie comics as kid, I still have them all and I remember reading them, imagining how cool it would be to have a gay guy in the comic going to the school! Now it&#39;s come true! It will be interesting to see what they do with this character!!J@v@JuNKohttp://www.blogger.com/profile/17439420762067297957noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-134830813707647265.post-55792289623302551012010-04-25T20:48:28.183-06:002010-04-25T20:48:28.183-06:00Archie gay?

I had stacks of the things. They were a major influence in my life. I was one lonely and friendless little kid, and my Archie comics kept me company when there were few others. <br />
Imagine how seeing a gay dude in my favorite comics might have positively influenced me, how he would have been a hero, how I would have looked up to him and wanted to be him. Imagine how validated I might have felt, how I would have considered myself included rather than excluded. <br />
What an enormous opportunity Archie Comics has to create a positive image for young gay kids coming up. I wish I&#39;d been as fortunate back in the day.Rick Modienhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02157314737543591048noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-134830813707647265.post-20762242749369493642010-04-24T00:35:37.384-06:002010-04-24T00:35:37.384-06:00This comment has been removed by the author.Rick Modienhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02157314737543591048noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-134830813707647265.post-13968076752777861892010-04-23T23:01:48.230-06:002010-04-23T23:01:48.230-06:00I&#39;m Big Kev Excited!
