In this week’s issue of Jughead’s self-titled comic, Archie’s pal is officially confirmed as asexual, adding to a roster of new and diverse characters the publisher has introduced in recent years, The Globe and Mail reports.
Archie’s burger-loving best friend has had a makeover recently in a series by Canadian writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Erica Henderson. In the fourth issue, out this week, Jughead Jones’s asexuality is casually introduced in a conversation with another student, the website Comic Book Resources reported Monday.
(Editor’s note: Parents, comic books and their movie spinoffs are one way the gay rights lobby are pedaling their agenda to young people. They believe in indoctrinating them young.)
