Archie Comics Taunts One Million Moms

The coming issue of Kevin Keller from Archie Comics was written partly as a jab at One Million Moms, according to author Dan Parent.
Parent said he wrote the story after efforts to remove a comic magazine showing Keller getting married drew at complaints. One Million Moms, a project of The American Family Association, asked Toys R Us not to display “Life With Archie” No. 16 near its checkout aisles. Toys R Us did not, and the issue went on to sell out its print run. Parent called the new story a “playful poke” at the protest. Publisher and co-CEO Jon Goldwater said the fact that any kiss is being shown in the pages of an Archie Comics book is a step in and of itself.
