So Buttons 6 – 24 pages – $5 (color)

Jonathan Baylis’s anthology of mostly funny, upbeat, true stories continues. Written by Baylis, but in the Harvey Pekar tradition, each is drawn by a different artist.

This issue features cover art by underground and Garbage Pail Kids legend Jay Lynch and includes Baylis’s longest story yet about art, life, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, featuring bookends by Victor Kerlow (Everything Takes Forever) and interiors by Becky Hawkins (French Toast Comix). T.J. Kirsch (She Died in Terrebonne) tackles the perfect holiday gift and Sam Spina (Spinadoodles) exploits imperfect revenge.  Fred Hembeck is back again with a follow-up tale from Baylis’s Marvel internship story. The book concludes with an appropriate solo piece by Josh Bayer about what it means to be an aging cartoonist in this industry.
