Skibber Bee~Bye

Ron Regé, Jr.

Ron Rege Jr. creates his own visual poetry that sets him apart from other cartoonists as one of the most original artists to enter the medium in the past decade. His storytelling is neither linear nor altogether accessible, however, his recognizable thin line and cute characters draw you into a dreamlike, sensitive, fantasy world that, as odd as it seems, is entirely realistic.

"Ron Rege is one of a handful of cartoonists in the history of the medium to not only reinvent comics to suit his own idiosyncratic impulses and inspirations as an artist, but to also imbue it with his own peculiar, ever-changing emotional energy. To me, he is unquestionably one of "the greats."
--Chris Ware

"Reducing the world to an arcane iconography of shapes, Skibber Bee~Bye creator Reg� has developed an odd, childlike language of drawing that verges on pictorial calligraphy."
--The Face [UK]

"Skibber Bee~Bye is the product of a remarkable and articulate new cartoon style for which the only context is the sensibility that created it."--Print Magazine

The Awake Field

Ron Regé, Jr.

The Awake Field is a collection of Reg's reflections of small town life during a recent 2-year sabbatical in a coastal community in southern Rhode Island. Short stories collide and swirl together leaving visions of mysterious creatures floating through lush landscapes, pantomimed fairytales, hypnotic dances, Bible quotations, and peace comics all in Reg's idiosyncratic abstract poetic cartoon language.

Against Pain

Ron Regé, Jr.



Against Pain is the first collection of multipage anthology pieces by Ron Reg�, Jr. The storytelling side of his expressive work is featured in these comic strips gathered from McSweeney's, The New York Times, Kramers Ergot, NON, Rosetta, Arthur, The Comics Journal, and Drawn & Quarterly's anthology. Suicide bombers, art appreciation, and a Lynda Barry "cover" are brought together under the theme of suffering and how people cope with it. Against Pain also includes the alt-comics zine classic Boys: a 22-page collaborative comic--considered by many to be Reg�s finest work--illustrating the "lust life" of a friend in explicitly honest and hilarious detail.

"Ron Reg� is one of a handful of cartoonists not only to reinvent comics to suit his own idiosyncratic impulses and inspirations, but also to imbue them with his own peculiar, ever-changing emotional energy. To me, he is unquestionably one of 'the greats.'" --Chris Ware
