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 Jackie Chan and artist Michael Golden—of the popular series Spartan X.

    During this time, Renee was also the color artist on hundreds of comics from the Avengers to Spider-Man to Captain America, among many, many more, while writing for The Impossible Man Summer Special, Marvel Age, the Silver Surfer Annuals, and numerous other titles.

She also authored the top-selling Excess: The Art of Michael Golden, which has sold out and gone into a second printing, and the upcoming Tex: The Art of Mark Texeira--The Artist's Great Escape.

    In addition to ongoing film work, she is the president of Little Eva Ink Publishing ( and Little Eva Ink Toys, printing art books, comics, portfolios, and much more under the imprint "Eva Ink." For the last eight years, Renee has worked in artist management via Eva Ink Artist Group, representing the likes of renowned illustrators Michael Golden, Steve Scott, and Mark Texeira. In addition, she is the co-producer of the popular DVD series, Creator Chronicles, with a focus on comic greats, with shows on George Perez, Joe Jusko, Michael Golden, and Bill Sienkiewicz, and upcoming DVDs on Texeira, Joe Sinnott, Matt Wagner and many more in the works.
