So Buttons Creator Jonathan Baylis announced today that his auto biographical series So Buttons will be published every Tuesday for eight weeks starting July 17, 2012 at Brooklyn-filtered literary arts salon TRIP CITY (TripCity.net). Each Tuesday a full and complete So Buttons story will be featured. Each So Buttons story is written by Baylis with guest artists including talent such as Fred Hembeck (Marvel), Thomas Boatwright (Slave Labor Graphics), and many more. Intriguing, heart warming, uplifting and downright funny, So Buttons resonates with many readers’ real life experiences. Trip City will be curating which stories and when they will hit the site based off what they feel their readers will enjoy each week.
“TRIP CITY is known for being host to some of the smartest, groundbreaking, current art and stories out there” Baylis remarked. “I am honored that they like my work this much!”.
Emmy award winner Dean Haspiel commented, “SO BUTTONS by Jonathan Baylis and his gang of artists is so good and TRIP CITY is happy to present the lighter side of autobio comix!”
