Writer, editor, and color-artist Renee Witterstaetter is well known for being the real-life editor of “She-Hulk,” but she is also a comic book character in that series as well.
Renee is also the author of “Nick Cardy: The Aritst at War,” “Excess: The Art of Michael Golden,” “Tex: The Art or Mark Texeira,” the children’s book “Kerry and the Scary Things,” “Dying for Action: The Life and Films of Jackie Chan,” and “Nick Cardy: Wit-Lash” among many others.
Renee began the comic phase of her career working on such titles as “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Superman,” “Silver Surfer,” “Conan The Barbarian,” “The Punisher” special projects, and “Conan Saga,” then going on to spearhead the reintroduction of “She-Hulk,” at Marvel as well, as part of that legendary run.
She then moved to Topps Comics where she was the editor on “X-Files,” “Jurassic Park,” “Xena” and “Hercules” and is the co-creator—with Jackie Chan and artist Michael Golden– of the successful series, “Spartan X” which will be made into a trade paperback featuring new material.
She is also the colorist on hundreds of comics from “The Avengers” to “Spider-man” to “Captain America” to “Jurassic Park,” among many, many others. “I must have colored a thousand pages of comic books,” she says.
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 “Rush Hour Two,” “Red Dragon,” “To ease the lose,” and “Swimming With The Virgin,” among others.
As well as a writer and publisher, Renee has curated gallery shows worldwide in such places as China, Spain, France and of course in numerous places in the United States. Her current gallery show is “Cloaked Crusader: George Washington in Comics and Pop Culture,” featuring art by Michael Golden, Arthur Suydam, Daniel Scott Jr., George Perez, George Evans and many more greats.
