After working as an editorial cartoonist for the United States Air Force, Sterling produced his first professional comic book in 1991 called The Renegade for underground publisher Rip-Off Press. In 1993 Sterling produced two more books, The Omar Lennyx Files: Blood Seekers and The Renegade: Night Slayer, the latter featuring the character Carl Kolchak from the Night Stalker TV series. Since then, his work has appeared in Tim Vigil’s Raw Media magazines, Jeff Rice’s 20th anniversary edition of The Night Stalker, Big Bang Comics and Todd McFarlane’s Spawn, as well as numerous media magazines and fan periodicals. He has won various awards for his art showcases, most notably the 1992 California Art Expo’s Award of Excellence. Currently, his work can be seen in the pages of Richard Matheson’s Kolchak Scripts from Gauntlet Press, edited by Mark Dawidziak. Sterling lives with his wife and their children in Northern Indiana.
A Cleveland, Ohio native, Sterling Clark has been a professional comic creator, writer and artist since 1991. That’s when his unique creation, The Renegade, was published by Rip-Off Press.
Sterling’s work on characters, stories and artwork for subsequent projects like Renegade: Night Slayer and Blood Seekers led to an opportunity to produce a full-page, full-color Spawn pin-up for an issue of Image Comic’s wildly popular character (visit our online gallery to see the pin-up). Sterling went on to produce original stories and art for Vibes Magazine, Big Bang Comics, Gauntlet Press and Cinemaker Press.
This prolific creator’s work includes two graphic novels featuring his supernatural adventurer Omar Lennyx, and the award-winning Tales From The Motherland, a graphic novel based on African folktales and mythology.
Expanding on a story from Tales From the Motherland, Sterling developed a comic strip centered around the female warrior Ntombinde (pronounced “in-tum-BEN-dee”). In 2009, the strip debuted in a major national test market, Fort Wayne, Ind., in INK, a bi-weekly community newspaper.
With imaginative stories, exciting art and vivid coloring (by colorist Terry Huddleston), Ntombinde is popular with readers of all ages across all demographic groups.
