Archie Comics: the Controversy

And I’m not talking about the ill-fated revamping of Betty and Veronica.

The group One Million Moms, part of the American Family Association, is trying to get Toys ‘R Us to remove Life with Archie #16 from their shelves, because it depicts gay marriage in a positive, non-threatening light. Of course, according to that blog post I linked there, they’re out of luck, since the issue sold out.

I’m not really a big Archie fan, but maybe I should be.

I really like the response from the team at Gutters.
