So Buttons #1

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."

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.
