Kevin Keller made history in 2011 as the first openly gay character in the history of Archie Comics. Now the out teen, who has had his own miniseries and ongoing comic, is breaking boundaries (and formats) with a new hardcover young-adult novel. Due out April 18, Kevin (Penguin, $9.99) looks at Keller’s early years as a middle-school military brat facing the prom, an amorous female friend, and a boy who acts like he doesn’t know Kevin exists.
