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.
