"Nathan Thomas Milliner is a master storyteller."--Comicthoughts.com
Nathan Thomas Milliner was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. After seeing the 1989 film "Batman", Nate decided he wanted to make comic books and after 14 years of studying the medium he finally made his dream come true when his crime saga "The Malevolent" made it's debut in the pages of "Feral Comix Presents #1" in 2003. In 2006, Nate began publishing his own set of graphic novels for "The Malevolent" series to rave reviews. In 2007, Nate published his first horror comic, "Girl Number Three" which was soon being adapted to film by a local filmmaker, Herschel Zahnd III, who believed it to be "one of the best horror stories I've ever read." The film was released in 2009. During all of this, Nate was also able to fullfill yet another lifelong dream of working in the horror genre when he became a staff artist and writer for Horrorhound Magazine, producing two covers for the publication in 2009, one of which earned him a Rondo Award nomination in which he took second runner up honors.
In 2012 Nathan was tapped by Shout! Factory to be the premiere artist on their new sister label "SCREAM! FACTORY" and commissioned him to provide original artwork for the dvd/blu ray special editions of Halloween II, Halloween III: Season of the Witch, The Funhouse, Terror Train, Deadly Blessing, The Burning and The Howling.
Nathan has recently published Volume One of his Monsters and Madmen artbook series--his first artbook. And he has just finished writing and directing his first directorial effort with the film "A Wish for the Dead" set for release in Summer 2013.
Nate lives in Kentucky with his wife Brenda and their daughter Lily.
