Why do we love Ron Rege? Maybe it’s the intensity of his comic drawing, the close, cluttered, but somehow orderly and mathematical way he creates his worlds. Maybe it’s the words inside his cartoons, the letters hidden almost, the alphabet used as shape and color and then - pow! suddenly an abstract message appears if you look long and hard, a weird, little, eloquent thought that makes sense just below the surface. Maybe it’s because it’s rare we see comics this good and this smart and this strange.
