The series, which follows the lives of Riverdale High School students a few years after graduation, focuses on Kevin and his life as a young adult in its January issue.

While Dr. Walker helps Kevin regain his ability to walk, the two develop a friendship. It’s not until a chance encounter at an airport that they start dating, which eventually leads to their marriage in Riverdale.
