Archie Comics have released a first look at tomorrow's Kevin Keller #14, starring the title character as the company's first gay superhero, The Equalizer.
In the preview, we see the setup for Kevin's decision -- rather unorthodox in Riverdale -- to become a costumed crusader.
Check it out, along with solicitation text for the issue, below. There's also a variant cover that pays homage to Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns.
