Mark D. Bright (born 1955) is an American comic book and storyboard artist. Often credited as M.D. Bright, and sometimes as Doc Bright (a play on his initials), he is best known for pencilling the Marvel Comics Iron Man story Armor Wars, the two Green Lantern: Emerald Dawn miniseries for DC Comics, for painting the iconic cover to Marvel Comics' Transformers #5, (featuring the Decepticon Shockwave and the haunting words "Are All Dead" underneath the series title), and for co-creating Quantum and Woody with writer Christopher J. Priest. Mostly out of comics, Bright is now a freelance storyboard artist, although he and Priest reunited for a 5-issue Quantum and Woody miniseries published by the new incarnation of Valiant Comics in 2014-2015, but set in the continuity of the original Quantum and Woody series.

His next major contribution to the world of comic books was another collaboration with Priest the final ten issues of Power Man and Iron Fist. Bright's major runs on comic book series include Solo Avengers, Iron Man, G.I. Joe, Green Lantern, Action Comics (when it was published weekly), Milestone Comics' Icon and Acclaim Comics' Quantum and Woody. Although Bright inked some of his covers, most of his interior comics artwork was created in collaboration with an inker, primarily Romeo Tanghal, Randy Emberlin, Greg Adams and Mike Gustovich. During his years as a full-time comic book artist, Bright also provided artwork for analogous trading cards: The Green Lantern Hal Jordan card for Impel's 1992 DC Cosmic Cards, approximately one-third of Impel's 1991 G.I. Joe trading card set, and all of the Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps artwork for Impel/Skybox's 1993 DC Cosmic Teams trading cards.
