His writing of the Love Showdown series in 1994 received widespread attention. Parent has illustrated a wide variety of titles, including Felix the Cat, Barbie, Disney Adventures, and more.
In fact, Dan Parent introduced the first openly gay character in Archie Comics, when he created Kevin Keller in Veronica #202, which he both wrote and drew. He recieved the GLAAD Media Award for Outsanding Comic Book in 2013, and was nominated for a 2013 for a Special Award in Humor in Comics for the Harvey Awards.
