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.


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]
