Artist Scott Clark worked for a number of publishers over the course of his career, but according to a statement he passed away at 43.
The report was posted last night on his Facebook page and quickly disseminated on Twitter. Clark was best known for his run on Wildstorm's original Stormwatch series in the '90s.
He went on to contribute to various titles, including Spawn/WildC.A.T.S., Alpha Flight, What If...?, and more. The bulk of Clark's work over the last several years was done for DC Comics where he contributed to Adventure Comics, Batman: Incorporated and Brightest Day.
Clark had begun working on a Martin Manhunter story written by Matt Kindt. The first chapter is scheduled to be published as a back-up feature in March's Justice League of America #2.
