Reggie is an all-ages comic created by Jen de Oliveira (pronounced: dee-olive-AIR-uh). Jen is a writer, cartoonist, and elementary school teacher from California. She is also the co-creator (with Mika Song) of Sunday Haha, a free weekly comics newsletter for kids. In June 2023, her debut graphic novel REGGIE: KID PENGUIN will be published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.

Jen earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Animation and Illustration from San José State University and a teaching credential from CSU East Bay. She lives in the East Bay with her husband and their three spoiled cats. They often can be found hiking or biking on one of the many nearby regional trails. (Not the cats, though — they sleep most of the day.)
