Bryan Q. Miller is an American television and comic writer most notable for his work on the CW’s television series Smallville and DC’s comic book Batgirl.

Career[edit]

Miller began work on Smallville as an unpaid intern during Season Five, a job he held for two seasons before being hired as a Writers’ Assistant in Season Seven. After completing the WB Writers’ Workshop, he was promoted to Staff Writer for Season Eight.[1] Before the show ended, he served as the show’s Executive Story Editor.[2]

Through his work on Smallville, Miller met comic writer Geoff Johns, who introduced Miller to editors at DC Comics. Through these meetings, Miller landed a three-book arc for Teen Titans in 2009.[3]

From October 2009 to July 2011, he wrote the re-launched Batgirl book, featuring Stephanie Brown as the cowl-wearing superhero. The series met critical acclaim. He went on to write the Smallville Season 11 comic book series.[4]

He is among the authors contributing to Pirates of the Caribbean: Six Sea Chanties, a graphic novel anthology that will serve as a prequel to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. It was expected to be published on April 19, 2011,[5] though was held back due to the production not being satisfied with the final product. Its current fate is currently unknown.

Miller is currently writing a Kickstarter-funded graphic novel, titled Earthward, with Marcio Takara producing the artwork.[6]

Personal life[edit]

Miller is married to Syfy Vice President of Original Programming and Development Erika Kennair.[7]
