A new generations of comics introduces a new generation of characters that are consistent with the spirit of the age. Yet it’s also worth remembering that many of these characters weren’t so nice even many years ago. “Katy Keene is being spun off of Riverdale, which re-imagined Archie and his gang as murderous, drug-running occultists. In what wasn’t even the show’s weirdest twist, they put Archie Andrews in a sexual relationship with his teacher Miss Grundy. While details about the new Katy Keene show are still scarce, from the trailer we do know one of her roommates will be a gay broadway dancer who, because he isn’t tough enough for the male roles, auditions for a female role.”
