MCM Comic Con Birmingham 2019 begins in:

Dan Parent is an American comic book artist and writer best known for his work for Archie Comics. A graduate of The Kubert School, Parent began working for Archie immediately after graduation. His writing of the Love Showdown series from 1994 received widespread attention. Parent has also illustrated Felix the CatBarbieDisney Adventures, and with Fernando Ruiz, created the comic series Die Kitty Die.

In 2010 Parent introduced the first openly gay character in Archie Comics when he created Kevin Keller in Veronica #202, which he wrote and drew. Kevin Keller got his own title with the publication of Kevin Keller #1 in 2012.

In May 2013 Parent was presented with the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book and was nominated for a 2013 Harvey Award for Special Award for Humor in Comics.

In 2015, Parent illustrated the comic Archie vs. Sharknado, a tie-in to Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! written by the film's director, Anthony C. Ferrante

In 2016, Parent along with artist/writer Fernando Ruiz published Die Kitty Die, which was funded through Kickstarter.

Dan illustrated the 2018 6-part crossover "Archie Meets Batman '66". It was a joint publication between Archie Comics and DC Comics, and was collected in trade format in March of 2019.

Dan’s current project for 2019-2020 is artist on the 6 part series “Archie: The Married Life 10th Anniversary “, which jumps to a future where Archie marries Betty and Veronica (in separate universes, of course) and where we see how marriage and children unfolds for him.
