SO WHAT? SO BUTTONS!
Comics writer’s funny SO BUTTONS digs into heart-touching topics ranging from Dad to Dachau to dating

"Don't let Baylis fool you. Yes, HIS COMICS ARE FUNNY, BUT I READ THEM FOR THE QUIET, HUMAN MOMENTS that will stick with you long after you've finished reading."
Xeric award winner Nick Bertozzi (The Salon and Houdini: The Handcuff King)

“Baylis' observations and anecdotes are AMUSING AND REVEALING.”
Sequart.com

“A FUN COMIC. Jonathan is a writer to keep an eye on.”
Xeric award winner Scott Mills (Cells)

These experts are talking about SO BUTTONS, a new comic book by writer JONATHAN BAYLIS. His tales -- personal yet accessible to anyone who’s struggled through growing up -- are "a promising collection of collaborations… transitioning somehow seamlessly from interracial porn to the musical Annie,” according to Jeffrey Brown, comics creator for McSweeney’s and Drawn & Quarterly.

Joining Baylis on SO BUTTONS are three gifted artists. Says comics blogger Shannon Smith, “Each artist has a distinct style from the others, but they all make good comics.”
• T.J. KIRSCH has drawn for publishers ranging from Archie Comics to Slave Labor Graphics. He’s most recently worked on Uncle Slam Fights Back! with writer Ande Parks for Oni Press.
• DAVID BEYER JR. has worked on Image Comics’ Tales of the Starlight Drive-In and his own strip, “The Twisted Adventures of Stinko.”
• MR. ALAN is a man of mystery.

SO BUTTONS’ stories include:
• “So . . . My Dad Got Drafted?”, a tale of surprising family secrets.
• “So . . . Racist?”, which delves into unconscious levels of racism.
• “So . . . The Sun Won’t Come Out Tomorrow,” about Annie’s odd power.
• “So . . . I’m Dating a Comic” and “So . . . She Moved in with Me Anyway,” strips revealing why comedy is easy but dating is hard.
• “So . . . Heaven Smells Like Bacon,” a slice of life in a diner.
• And the finale, “So . . . Only Nixon Could Go to China,” covering the Jewish Baylis’ trip to Europe -- and, in particular, to Dachau.

Meet the Author

Before Jonathan Baylis wrote auto-bio comix, he interned at Marvel Comics, Valiant/Acclaim Comics, and was an Associate Editor at Topps Comics. His comics have been published locally in New York City in Free Comics NYC, The Comical Magazine, & The Comedians Magazine. “So… Only Nixon Could’ve Gone to China” was the first comic story to be published in The Florida Review. His first fiction story with David Beyer was published by Arcana Press in Dark Horrors 2. Jonathan & T.J. Kirsch had a couple of two-pagers published in “I Saw You… Missed Connections” and “Side B: The Music Lovers Anthology”. He has since collected most of his stories into the self-published, “So Buttons” series, of which there are three issues and a holiday special in print. More stories can be found at www.sobuttons.com
