John Jackson Miller is a science-fiction author, comic book writer, and commentator, known for his work on the Star Wars franchise and his research into comic book circulation history. He was born on January 12, 1968. He began as editor of the trade magazine Comics Retailer in 1993. Following the introduction of Magic: The Gathering, he added games to its coverage, changing the title to Comics & Games Retailer in 2001. 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. In early 2008, he launched a fantasy webcomic with artist Chuck Fiala called Sword & Sarcasm. In 2008, he wrote the Dark Horse comic-book adaptation of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.[4] In 2009, he was announced as the scripter for Mass Effect: Redemption, the first comic-book series based on the video game Mass Effect, launching in January 2010. In 2013 he wrote his first novel in a non-licensed universe, Overdraft: The Orion Offensive, for 47 North. In 2005, Miller wrote an issue of Star Wars: Empire for Dark Horse Comics, featuring Darth Vader. Next year, as part of Dark Horse Star Wars comic line, Miller started writing the ongoing Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic comic series, serving as a spin-off for the video game. The series proved a major success among fans and lasted for 50 issues. In August 2008, Wizards of the Coast released a Knights of the Old Republic guidebook for its Star Wars Roleplaying Game, which Miller co-wrote. In 2010 Miller began writing the Star Wars: Knight Errant comic series. A Knight Errant novel was released in early 2011 by Del Rey. This was Miller's first professional novel. Most recently, 2012 saw a continuation of the Knights of the Old Republic storyline with a mini-series entitled War. In October 2012, Del Rey announced that Miller would write Star Wars: Kenobi, a novel about Obi-Wan Kenobi's life on Tatooine. This title made The New York Times Best Seller List for 2013. His title, A New Dawn, made the New York Times bestseller list in 2014.
