I am Dan Parent, comic book artist for Archie Comics and creator of Archie's first gay character, Kevin Keller -- AMA
Hey Redditors! I’ve been writing and illustrating at Archie Comics almost my entire career and introduced Archie Comics' first gay character, Kevin Keller back in 2010. The issue ended up becoming the first Archie comic book to sell out in it’s 69-year history. My artwork was recently featured in fashion magazines worldwide in promotion of M·A·C Cosmetic’s latest collection, Archie’s Girls and I'm currently collaborating on one of the biggest crossover events of the year, Archie Meets Glee. Looking forward to answering your questions. Ask me anything.
Here is proof
