GLAAD is proud to recognize the work of Dan Parent, and everyone at Archie Comics, with this year's GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book.”
Kevin Keller was also expanded into a young adult novel titled Kevin which was published by Penguin Books and was included in the gift bag at the GLAAD Media Awards.
