Reginald Edward Parlett was an artist from England who had a career of drawing for comic books that lasted for 66 years.
On the death of Frank Minnitt in 1958 he became one of the artists who took over the drawing of the Billy Bunter comic strip in Knockout. Such was his popularity that the 2 August 1984 issue of Buster celebrated his 80th birthday, and a 1989 issue of Big Comic Fortnightly celebrated his 85th.
Parlett married in 1928, and with his wife Mary (née Carter), whom he had first met at a dance in 1921, had two sons, Malcolm and Grahame Parlett.
A book titled The Comic Art of Reg Parlett written by Alan Clark was released on 10 November 1986.
