Skibber Bee-Bye

Cover of Skibber Bee-Bye by Ron Regé

I found this amazing book in Forbidden Planet last week. Written and drawn by Ron Regé Jr, it has to be one of the most beautiful and original graphic novels I have ever seen. His drawings are absolutely wonderful and put me in mind of Keith Haring and the cartoon work of Bauhaus luminary Lyonel Feininger. I initially picked this up because the spine looked a bit like a Chris Ware book and ironically Mr. W is quoted on the back extolling the virtues of Mr. R.

I’ve put some pics of the cover and some pages on Flickr.

If you’re interested, the original edition (published in 2000) is still available on amazon.co.uk (I got the later Drawn & Quarterly edition from 2006) and I can highly recommend it.

Lik-Lik!
