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.
