Archie Gets Involved with the Love is Love Anthology

Archie Comics is teaming up with IDW Publishing and DC Entertainment and will be contributing to the Love is Love anthology benefiting victims of Orlando’s Pulse Nightclub tragedy.

The company will include two stories featuring Archie Comics characters designed to show support for the LGBTQ community.

Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, artist Stephen Byrne, and Archie legend Dan Parent have crafted two heartfelt and moving pieces featuring Kevin Keller, Archie, and other Archie Comics characters as they stand with the victims of this national tragedy and the entire LGBTQ community.

The Love is Love collection, curated by writer Marc Andreyko, features artwork from dozens of collaborators in the comic book industry designed to send a powerful message of support to the victims, survivors, and their families. All materials for the project have been donated and all proceeds will go directly to the families and victims via Equality Florida.

Kevin Keller, the first gay character in Archie Comics history, was introduced in 2010 by longtime Archie writer/artist Dan Parent, whose contribution to Love is Love features a one-page pinup featuring a message from Kevin Keller to the LGBTQ community about how to cope and respond to the tragic events that struck Orlando.

The Love is Love anthology graphic novel goes on sale December 21st at comic book shops.
