Writer, editor, producer and publisher Renee Witterstaetter began the comic phase of her career working on such titles as Superman at DC Comics and Silver Surfer, Conan The Barbarian and Conan Saga at Marvel, then going on to spearhead the reintroduction of She-Hulk at Marvel to boot. She then moved over to Topps Comics where she was the editor on X-Files, Jurassic Park, Xena and Hercules and the co-creator—with artist Michael Golden-- of the successful series, Spartan X.
During this time, Renee was also the colorist on hundreds of comics from the Avengers to Spide-rman to Captain America among many, many more. Film work was a natural progression for Renee after this storytelling immersion in comics, and she has since worked on dozens of music videos for Madonna, Seal, Ben Harper and Usher, as well as the feature movies Police Story III, Drunken Master II, Crime Story, Rush Hour Two, Red Dragon , To ease the lose, and Swimming With The Virgin, among others.
She is the author of numerous books, boxing articles and feature articles including the books "Dying for Action: The Life and Films of Jackie Chan" from Warner Publishing, "The Fantastic Art..." from Vanguard Productions and "The Art of the Barbarian" from Image/Eva Ink, as well as the best-selling biography "Excess: The Art of Michael Golden" from Vanguard Productions, which sold out and went into a second printing. Her newest books include a biography and retrospective on artist Mark Texeira entitled "Tex: The Art of Mark Texeira," as well as the Michael Golden sketchbooks, "Heroes and Villains" and "MORE Heroes and Villains," the Texeira sketchbook "Babes and Brawn," and the Jusko book "Joe Jusko: Savage Beauty."
In other genres, her new books, the historical and biographical work "Nick Cardy: The Artist at War," and the children's book "Kerry and the Scary Things," have just hit the stands.
A member of the Society of Illustrators in Manhattan, in addition to on-going film work, she is the President of Little Eva Ink Publishing and Little Eva Ink Toys. Renee is also currently working in artist management via Eva Ink Artist Group, and is the co-producer of the a DVD series highlighting creatives in many fields.
