In spite of never being nominated for an Eisner, and never sporting a curly-que mustache, Jonathan Baylis does lead an interesting life and through the pages of “So Buttons” he (with a little help from friends) tells the tales of his adventures! In this issue of his autobiographic comic series Jonathan delivers the details on meeting Ethan Hawke, Sir Patrick Stewart, Ian MacKaye, and Chris Claremont! But wait, that’s not all, Jonathan also ruminates on sharing the same birthday as Kerry Washington, Johnny Rotten, and Grant Morrison…okay, that doesn’t really qualify as adventurous, but Jonathan’s six-year old son did discover the word “shit” in the pages of So Buttons! Believe me (speaking as a family man that draws cartoons for HUSTLER), when your kids discover your work it can lead to some hilariously uncomfortable adventures in family conversations!
Each story Jonathan shares in So Buttons is uniquely illustrated by a different artist that brings their individual style to the pages. The result is a collection of entertaining stories backed up by a diverse group of talented artists with their own distinctive approach to graphic storytelling!
