Lily Renée is an American artist best known as one of the earliest women in the comic-book industry, beginning in the 1940s periods known as the Golden Age of Comics. She escaped from Nazi-occupied Vienna to England and later New York, whereupon she found work as a penciller and inker at the comics publisher Fiction House, working on such features as “Jane Martin”, “The Werewolf Hunter”, “The Lost World” and “Senorita Rio”.
