DAN INTERVIEWS ME & SAYS ALL KINDS OF NICE THINGS ABOUT MY NEW COMIC OVER AT THE COMICS JOURNAL *JEEZ* Guess I should print some more!
"Ron Regé Jr recently self-published—and promptly sold out of—far and away the best comic I’ve read this year: Diana. This xeroxed 28-page masterpiece is an adaption of the Wonder Woman origin story. Regé, the author of The Cartoon Utopia, Skibber Bee Bye, and that other perfect comic book, Boys (FYI: Other perfect comic books include: Supermonster #14, Twisted Sisters 1, Despair, Bogeyman #1,Eightball #22, etc, etc.), manages to strip away everything but the bare, ecstatic bones of Wonder Woman and make a compelling new comic, grounded in history but newly energized and politically astute. As per usual, Regé’s airy, linear style is at once approachable and then untouchably perfect. The closest cartoonists I can think of to compare with with Ron would be some bizarre mix of George Herriman and Crockett Johnson — beautiful, intelligent, and humanist. I interviewed Ron back in 2002 for TCJ, and Jay Babcock interviewed him last year. Ron is a fucking national treasure.”
