Long Hot Summer
Since 2003, McKelvie has collaborated with Kieron Gillen on a number of works. This started with a comic strip for the official PlayStation Magazine UK, entitled Save Point, which ran for at least three years. Their first comic book together was Phonogram, a six-issue series in 2006, which was followed by two sequel series in 2008 and 2015 with Matt Wilson. The three worked together on a relaunch of Young Avengers for Marvel in 2013. Currently they working together on new series called The Wicked + The Divine, which launched in 2014.
His first creator-owned series as both writer and artist, Suburban Glamour, was published in 2008, with Guy Major and Matthew Wilson as colourists. He has done various work for Marvel Comics, including a run on Defenders with Matt Fraction, and the X-Men: Season One graphic novel with Dennis Hopeless.
McKelvie has redesigned a number of characters' costumes, including the 2012 redesign of long-time character Carol Danvers, for a relaunch of the character as the new Captain Marvel, and, in late 2013, the design for Kamala Khan's outfit when she becomes Ms Marvel. He has also made available his personal takes on Wonder Woman, Iron Man and Cyclops.
McKelvie has said that he emphasises practicality when creating his Marvel designs, stating that he considers the "message a [..] character's design is putting across", and specifically for Ms. Marvel, the design reflects "the Captain Marvel legacy, and also her story and her background".
