Last night Archie Comics revisited the famous Strand Bookstore in NYC to celebrate the new Kevin novel after a hugely successful signing event for The Art of Betty and Veronica last January. Fans were excited to meet Dan Parent and Paul Kupperberg who took part in a discussion of the historic Archie character, Kevin Keller. The pair fielded audience questions, signed books, and Paul treated the crowd to a reading from the young adult novel being published through Penguin Books.
Dan and Paul discussed their work on the Kevin Keller and Life with Archie series respectively and the character’s development since his introduction. Kevin’s first appearance in Veronica #202 resulted in the comic selling out, warranting the first re-print of an Archie comic in 70 years. The second Archie comic to sell-out was Life with Archie #16, which saw the Kevin character returning from active military duty and marrying his physical therapist.
Kevin can be found in bookstores everywhere now, or through the Penguin books website. Kevin Keller #8 and Life With Archie #28 are also on newsstands now. Subscribe to the whole series here.
