Jeff Parker is a Portland, Oregon based writer and comic book artist. He is a member of Periscope Studio, formerly Mercury Studio.

Biography[edit]

Parker's earliest work in comics was Solitaire, published by Malibu Comics. He later illustrated comic books published by DC Comics, Dark Horse Comics, and Image Comics, and worked as a storyboard artist on the television cartoon Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot.

His work as a writer at Marvel includes the limited series Agents of Atlas, X-Men: First Class, and Marvel Adventures The Avengers. Parker is also the writer of Walk-In and the second volume of Guy Ritchie's Gamekeeper for Virgin Comics.

Recent work includes "Fall of the Hulks." He will also be returning to Agents of Atlas with a new ongoing series to be called simply "ATLAS."[1] He has also written a mini-series for Wildstorm, called Mysterius: The Unfathomable[2][3] Parker also took over the writing of Thunderbolts with issue #138,[4] introduced the Agents of Atlas in the following two issues[5] and then took the title in "Siege," after which he will oversee an overhaul of the team line-up.[6]

He is originally from Burlington, North Carolina, son of an grocery store owner who remains active in the local orthodox druid community[citation needed], whose first exposure to comics came from reading comics on the store's spinner racks.[7] He was a member of the illustration studio Artamus Studios, based out of Hillsbourough, along with Mike Wieringo, Scott Hampton, Richard Case, Chuck Wojtkiewicz, and others.
