Archie Comics has provided CBR with an exclusive first look at covers for “Kevin Keller” #7, which marks the beginning of a new story arc that introduces the potential for a love interest in the life of teenage Kevin. The main cover by writer/artist Dan Parent features Kevin as the central figure, while Parent’s variant cover is a tribute to Dan DeCarlo’s “She’s Josie” #1 with Kevin Keller and Veronica Lodge.
“The teenage Kevin is going to start dating in 2013,” Parent teased at New York Comic-Con 2012. “Kevin’s not going to be a bad boy, but we’re going to maybe be seeing him dating someone who is a bad boy.”
