So Buttons: Man of, Like, a Dozen Faces collects the choicest slices of life from 10 years of So Buttons, writer Jonathan Baylis's autobiographical comics series.

Like the late great Harvey Pekar (American Splendor) before him, Baylis utilizes an all-star cadre of indie artists to illustrate his true-life tales. Baylis's reality-based repertoire ranges from heartfelt humorously self-deprecating tales of love, dating and marriage, to engaging rants and ruminations on his pop culture obsessions including Forrest Ackerman, Akira Kurosawa, Lon Chaney, The Beatles, King Kong, Star Wars and then some to anecdotes of times interning at Marvel and working at Sundance, where he found out Robert Redford is a jerk.





“These comics are the bits and pieces of a real life. From the banal to the beautiful. Jonathan’s stories are relatable and often very funny.”
— Noah Van Sciver, The Hypo and Saint Cole

“Jonathan Baylis has spun gold from the belly button link of traditional comix navel gazing.”
— Dean Haspiel, Billy Dogma and The Fox

“Following in the footsteps of the late, great Harvey Pekar, Jonathan Baylis not only carves out soulful slices of life, but also dissertates compellingly on bits of culture that strike his fancy.”
— Jeff Newelt, comics editor, Heeb Magazine
