YouTube per­son­al­i­ty Ben Pot­ter, who was known online as the pop­u­lar con­tent cre­ator Comic­sto­ri­an, has passed away at the age of 40 fol­low­ing an “unfor­tu­nate accident.”

His wife Nathalie Pot­ter made the heart­break­ing announce­ment on social media, stat­ing that her hus­band had died on June 8th.

Nathalie described Ben as “one of the best and most sup­port­ive indi­vid­u­als any­one could ask for,” high­light­ing his lov­ing and gen­uine nature as a hus­band, fam­i­ly mem­ber, and friend. 

She not­ed that his YouTube chan­nel, which had amassed over 3 mil­lion sub­scribers and fea­tured over 3,900 videos, was “one of his great­est accomplishments.”

Despite the tragedy, Nathalie vowed to car­ry on Ben’s lega­cy by con­tin­u­ing to oper­ate his pop­u­lar Comic­sto­ri­an chan­nel. She said, “While we all need our time to mourn him, I know he would­n’t want it to end like this. Ben spent over 10 years spread­ing his love and appre­ci­a­tion for his hobbies.

It was through his love of excit­ing sto­ries and well writ­ten char­ac­ters that got him start­ed on YouTube. We sup­port­ed each oth­er on every­thing we want­ed to do and I’m not about to stop now.”

The news of Ben’s pass­ing was met with an out­pour­ing of con­do­lences from fans and fel­low con­tent creators. 

Many praised his sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions to the com­ic book com­mu­ni­ty, as well as his infec­tious enthu­si­asm and warm per­son­al­i­ty. Actor O’Shea Jack­son Jr., writer Jim­my Palmiotti, and voice actress Susan Eisen­berg were among those who paid trib­ute to the late YouTuber.

Nathalie asked for pri­va­cy dur­ing this dif­fi­cult time as she nav­i­gates the next steps, but assured that she and Ben’s col­leagues will work to hon­or his lega­cy and con­tin­ue shar­ing the great sto­ries he was so pas­sion­ate about.
