Ben Potter, a YouTube personality known for audio dramas that he created from comic books, has died. He was 40.

The content creator died after “an unfortunate accident” on June 8, his wife, Nathalie Potter, shared on his X (formerly Twitter) account.

Known to his three million followers as Comicstorian, Potter had been a part of the YouTube community for over a decade and a fixture in the world of comic book fandom on the platform, regularly discussing the Marvel and DC universes in his over 4,000 posted videos. His wife did not provide any further details of the accident.

“To many of you, he was Comicstorian, voicing stories from across multiple different mediums. To his loved ones, he was one of the best and most supportive individuals anyone could ask for,” Nathalie wrote.

“As a husband, a son, a brother, a friend, or even just a stranger, Ben was loving and genuine. He was someone who would listen and make time for his loved ones. He would do his best to make everyone laugh and make sure they were okay. He was our rock and he’d reassure his loved ones whenever they needed it,” she added.

In the post, Nathalie indicated that she and a team she’s working with would carry on with Potter’s channel in some capacity after she mourns his death. 

“To honor him by continuing to tell great stories by great people, as well as to keep the memory of our very own superhero alive,” she wrote on X. “We supported each other on everything we wanted to do and I’m not about to stop now.”

Others mourning Potter’s death on the platform since the announcement include rapper-actor Ice Cube’s son, O’Shea Jackson Jr., and comic book author Scott Snyder.

“I am still taking my break from Twitter for personal reasons. But with the news I just got I have to come back say something,” Jackson wrote. “Rest in Peace to Comicstorian. I’m heartbroken to hear this news. One of my favorite follows on YouTube, thank you so much for your work man I was a huge fan.”
