Former Padawan—and former fugitive—Zayne Carrick is taking his life in a new direction. Along with his con-artist best friend Gryph, the beautiful, bold, and mysterious Jarael, and ex-Mandalorian warrior Rohlan, our bumbling yet lovable hero is ready to embark on the sort of adventures only possible in the Star Wars universe! In "Prophet Motive," it's a long-shot swindle gone wrong; in "Faithful Execution," it's a ghost ship and renegade droids; and in "Dueling Ambitions," it's combat sports and high-speed racing.

• Don't miss out on this action-filled collection of Knights of the Old Republic—it's the beginning of a new era for our cast of characters, and the perfect jumping-on point for new readers!

In 1998, Miller was appointed managing editor of Comics Buyer's Guide; he served as the first editor of Scrye: The Guide to Collectible Card Games. He produced much work for Comics Buyer's Guide magazine. His first professional comics work appeared in 2003 in Crimson Dynamo for Marvel Comics, which led to a run on Iron Man. He writes a regular column called Longbox Manifesto for regular comics magazine Comics Buyer's Guide. In 2007, he launched The Comics Chronicles, a website devoted to comic-book circulation history and research. In February 2007, he was hired as a writer for the video game Sword of the New World.
