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. Nate lives in Kentucky with his wife Brenda and their daughter Lily.

I’ve known of the art of Nathan Thomas Milliner for a little bit now but it never hit me how much of his I’ve come across and really liked up until recently. That’s because when you see a cool piece of art someone posts on the net or you flip past something in a magazine you might not always see credit given to where the art has come from. This is one of the things I like about Facebook, the artists themselves can post their own work so there’s no confusion on where it came from.
I recently came in contact with Nathan Thomas Milliner on Facebook and it finally hit me where a lot of this artwork was coming from that I’ve admired.
What recently got me interested in his work is the covers he’s done for the Scream Factory releases of John Carpenter’s Halloween 2 and Halloween 3.
Aside from these Nathan has some awesome prints that are going to be sold at some upcoming conventions he’s going to be a guest at. There is an incredible 4 print set for The Monster Squad which coincide with the appearance of numerous guests from the film at the upcoming conventions.
There is also a badass Evil Dead print that he’s come up with as well that will be available at Fright Night Horror Weekend which takes place June 29 – July 1 in Louisville Kentucky.
