Darby Romeo is a San Francisco, CA writer and publisher of the defunct zines Ben Is Dead and The I Hate Brenda Newsletter, both of which focused on pop culture and drew mainstream media attention.

Romeo also organized the 1996 Kill Zinesters Tour, which brought several self-publishers through 20 cities in a large recreational vehicle. The zine Socially Fucking Retarded documents this project and its fallout.

Romeo is no longer active in zines, but part of her legacy in zines lives on at the UCLA Special Collections Library where they house "The Darby Romeo Zine Collection."
