Against Pain is the first collection of multi-page anthology pieces by Ron Regé, 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 twenty-two page collaborative comic—considered by many to be Regé’s finest work—illustrating the “lust life” of a friend in explicitly honest and hilarious detail.
