Kevin Keller #8: Back To Basics!

Kevin Keller #8 contains a story by Dan Parent and art by Bill Galvan, opening with Kevin's dating situation with Devin being complicated by heretofore secret admirer Paul deciding to make himself known to Kevin.
The story in this issue involves Veronica producing a school play that Kevin had promised to appear in. Not surprisingly, Paul manages to get himself cast as Kevin's romantic interest:

 Also not surprising is Devin's reaction:
Devin realizes that the best way to keep an eye on things between Kevin and Paul is to get himself a job as a stagehand.
Devin can only take so much, and he winds up sabotaging the play's climactic scene:
But, all's well that ends well, as Devin apologizes, and it turns out that his stunt was probably the best thing to happen to Veronica's flawed production:

The issue was fun, and was a 'back to basics' of sorts for an Archie comic. One could easily imagine a scenario where Betty or Veronica attempted to get a role in a school play opposite Archie, and the other girl worked to sabotage her rival (or substitute Archie and Reggie for the girls), and it's likely the story's been done. Kevin, Devin, and Paul are gay, which makes this somewhat unusual, but it just shows how all human interactions really are not that very different, regardless of one's orientation. The book should not avoid addressing the occasional political reality, but, IMO, it does more of a service to show gay teens as just typical kids, involved in the same stories that the straight Archie kids have been involved in for decades.
