Bio:
Miran Kim,world renown cover artist for the official X-Files comic series was born in New Jersey and raised in N.Y.C until age 8 when Miran and her family relocated to South Korea until she was 18.

Ms. Kim attended and graduated from the Academy Art College of San Francisco, and continued her studies at the Graduate program at N.Y.C. School of Visual Arts.

Miran, was personally selected by Topps to create the original comic cover art for 40 of the 41 issued X-Files comics. Miran was officially approved by the X-Files creator Chris Carter who states "I love Miran Kim's X-Files cover art!" The only comic cover that Miran did not create was a photographic (non-artwork) cover.

Miran's X-Files cover art was also published in Europe on the covers of British and Spanish X-Files magazines.

Miran landed the job as The X-Files cover artist by first working on the Topps Star Wars and Mars Attacks card series. Miran produced artwork that Topps thought was the most gruesome ever!!! This comment Miran took as a compliment.

Miran produced a series of paintings in art college titled "Fear of the Unknown" which incorporated many of the of the qualities that enabled Miran to create the mood which she is now famous for through her world acclaimed X-Files cover art.

Miran,when asked about the creation of her art,states there is no computer manipulation involved. In fact, she jokingly states "I don't even know how to turn on a computer". Miran feels there's something nicer about being physical with paper, tearing it up, painting on top of it, using liquids and proper mediums to cool it down. Miran says there is something a bit impersonal about computers, maybe I just feel that way because I don't know much about them, but right now I love the process of getting on top of the paper and making it a physical thing.
