Renegade Press in California U.S.A. published about 20 titles. It was founded by Deni Loubert after her marital and business break up with Dave Sim and Aardvark-Vanaheim Inc. With the break-up of the Aardvark-Vanaheim Inc.partnership on January 1, 1985, nearly all of the southern Ontario artists joined Deni and her new company which gave Renegade Press the unusual distinction of being a U.S. company composed almost entirely of Canadian creators.
