MEET THE TEAM
PREVIOUSLY…
RENAE GEERLINGS (Editor) After getting a degree in
theatre and moving to Los Angeles, Renae was hired by David Wohl at
Top Cow Productions as a lowly editorial assistant in 1997. In 2006, after
almost 10 years of climbing the ranks, she ended her tenure there as
Editor in Chief. She has continued to freelance as a comic book editor/
consultant with many companies, including Spark Unlimited, IP Factory
and Radical Publishing, and is very happy to have come full circle and be
working with David Wohl again at Darby Pop!
She is married to actor Tyler Mane (X-MEN) whom she met at ChicagoCon and they share a
house with his two children and her menagerie of animals.
Ben Fischer helped build the world’s greatest surveillance system -- utilizing every camera, cell
phone, and computer in the Bay Area to battle crime. There were only two problems: Golden
Shield wouldn’t work without a more “instinctual” control mechanism, and Homeland Security
was about to pull its funding.
So when a terrorist attack took Ben’s sight, his friend/boss, Owen, replaced Ben’s eyes
with optical cameras and neuro-hardware which allowed Ben to integrate with Golden Shield
itself. Integrate he did, much more quickly and completely than anyone could have imagined. And
now, with almost complete control over San Francisco’s network of systems, Ben is zeroing in on
the terrorist cell responsible for his “disfigurement.”
Unfortunately, doing so has made Ben the primary target of Someone who wants to use Golden
Shield, and Ben, to further his own agenda. And Someone doesn’t like anyone asking the wrong
questions. When Ben goes to Owen with his suspicions, Owen ends up between Ben and the bullets
meant to silence his questions permanently.
