I’m a big fan of Archie Comics… not so much today, ’cause they cost a fortune here in South Africa, but I used to read them cover to cover when I was in primary school. It has now come to my attention that Archie comics will get a gay character. Now, I’m kinda in two camps (ha, get it?) on this one. Firstly, yeah, freshen up the series. Archie Comics has got one of the weirdest canons ever. They’re stuck in high school forever. Feels like a Twilight Zone episode and they go through the same Christmas (+ other holidays) every year, yet they never finish school. So, please yeah, introduce a new character. It’s one step in the right direction.
Secondly, why? Everyone is becoming so PC lately. Apparently, Veronica will fall in love with the gay dude, while he bats her. lol fail. I really don’t mind gay characters, but introducing one for the sake of new social standards feels like selling out, and by the way, in my opinion Jughead is a closet gay. Who runs away from chicks? C’mon!?
