About So Buttons #5
So Buttons #5 features a tribute cover to the first Kirby book Baylis ever read, Cap #212, by Tom Scioli (Godland, American Barbarian) and interior work by Noah Van Sciver, who’s getting great buzz right now because of his highly-regarded Lincoln GN for Fantagraphics called “The Hypo”. Also featured are Thomas Boatwright (Zeke Deadwood), Lisa Rosalie Eisenberg (I Cut My Hair), and Paul Westover (Woody After Hours).
