Media Release — Autobiographical sequential art storyteller Jonathan Baylis announced today that the issue of So Buttons #4 to be sold at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art Festival will have a special edition cover with the creator standing on the new One World Trade Center, in a tribute to the 1976 King Kong movie poster. Recently featured on AMC’s The Comic Book Men, Baylis realized just how much his fans appreciate his love of New York and he wanted to do something to give to comemerate New York rebuilding such an important building. This issue contains artwork from Noah Van Sciver (Fantagraphics), Fred Hembeck (Marvel), Thomas Boatwright (Slave Labor Graphics), and many others. The cover art is courtesy T.J. Kirsch (She Died in Terrebonne).
