It’s the 10th Anniversary issue of So Buttons!

How do you celebrate your 10th-anniversary issue of So Buttons? With friends of course! Beginning in this issue is a multi-part series of strips featuring famous folks that share my birthday, beginning with Norman Mailer, drawn by T.J. Kirsch. I take a dive into some NYC Soul Food history with Princess Pamela collaborating with artist Nicole Miles and recount a piece of Saturday Night Live’s origin story with New Yorker cartoonist Jeremy Nguyen. And Paul Westover draws a snapshot of an old friend that led me to become a bone marrow donor. This all-new issue features cover art by Thomas Boatwright in tribute to Jim Aparo’s cover for Detective Comics #469 (my first Batman comic). Includes new, funny toddler stories by Summer Pierre and heartwarming tributes to my passed dog Mocha by Haley Boros and New Yorker cartoonist Emily Flake.
