Matthew has worked for DC COMICS and MARVEL COMICS on such titles as ADVENTURES of SUPERMAN, TEEN TITANS, the OUTSIDERS, SUPERMAN/BATMAN and WONDER WOMAN. He’d spent a year doing special projects for DC before taking on THE DOOM PATROL.. Clark co-created the book FELON with Greg Rucka which has something of a cult following. Most recently Matthew has worked on Kurt Busieks Astro City, Justice League with Bryan Hitch, and a Green Arrow 2 partner.
Matthew began his comic book career at DC in 1999 on Wonder Woman. It was a year long run full of ups and downs for the young artist. In 2003 following a brief tenure on Marvels Young Inhumans, Matthew got a call that would change his life. Being offered the regular pencilling assignment on ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, the original SUPERMAN title, fulfilled his life long dream of drawing SUPERMAN. The very reason Mr. Clark wanted to draw comics professionally in the first place. Matthew believes a man can fly.
While at MARVEL COMICS drawing such books as GHOST RIDER, PUNISHER, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. and AVENGING SPIDER-MAN. Professionally Matthew has worked with the top writers in comics from Greg Rucka, Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Mark Millar and many others. His attention to detail has been a hallmark to his art.. Often during a series he’ll be requested to draw in different styles paying homage to other artist a great example is ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #638 the Calvin and Hobbes pastiche, still get great reviews. Currently working for Valiant, Legendary, DC, Upperdeck, Dark Horse…..its a wonder he sleeps…oh wait he doesn’t.
