This book is a great introduction to Kevin Keller in Riverdale. His first appearance in Archie Comics is in this book.

Kevin plays a funny role in the group. He is Jughead’s equal when it comes to eating. They have many eating contests. Veronica was very attracted to him at first, even ditching Archie to go after Kevin. But that was before she knew he was gay! It turns out he is the one guy in Riverdale who doesn’t want to date Veronica.

This book also showed a lot of Kevin’s family life. He traveled around the world with his family growing up because his dad was in the military. Kevin even wants to follow in his dad’s footsteps and be a reporter in the military.

I loved this book! I can’t wait to read more Kevin Keller comics!
