Full color and priced at $6.00 So Buttons is an invitation to laugh and be moved by memories and experiences everyone can relate to. What others have said about previous issues of So Buttons: Chris Staros (Top Shelf) “So I went to L.A. - Nice story -- learned something too.” Nick Bertozzi (The Salon) "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." Dean Haspiel (on L.A./Kong) “I really dug 'So I Went To L.A.' great story/great art. The King Kong tale was fun, too [nostalgic]. I dig the artist you're working with. You two make a swell pair.” Check out a preview at: http://issuu.com/jonathanbaylis/docs/sobuttons4issuupreview Friend us on Facebook: http://tinyurl.com/3lmej8m Follow Jonathan at http://twitter.com/#!/JonathanBaylis About Jonathan Baylis: Before Jonathan Baylis wrote auto-bio comics, he interned at Marvel Comics, Valiant/Acclaim Comics, and was an Associate Editor at Topps Comics.
