New issue of So Buttons by former Topps Comics associate editor Jonathan Baylis, premiere issue of Teej Comix by T.J. Kirsch (She Died in Terrebonne: A Sam Kimimura Mystery) to launch at this weekend’s Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland.

From the press release:

sobuttons6-188x300(Sept 12, 2013-New York NY) Writer Jonathan Baylis announced that issue #6 of his autobiographical comic So Buttons will be premiering at this weekend’s Small Press Expo in Bethesda Maryland. Alchemy Comix will now also be premiering T.J. Kirsch’s book Teej Comix for the first time ever at the show. Both books explore unique variations of storytelling portrayed in sequential art. Kirsch has been a long time collaborative partner with Baylis and a regular contributor to So Buttons comics. You can find both books at booth #G-14. Small Press Expo showcases the best in independent comics from around the world and is the host to the Ignatz Awards.

So Buttons #6 has an important first at the show as well. The first So Buttons trading card! “So Buttons #6 pays homage to the Garbage Pail Kids stickers of my youth, and I worked at Topps later on, so a So Buttons trading card was a natural next step,” explained Baylis. Trading cards are free with purchase.

About So Buttons #6:

So Buttons #6 – 24 pages – $5 (color): Jonathan Baylis’s anthology of mostly funny, upbeat, true stories continues. Written by Baylis, but in the Harvey Pekar tradition, each is drawn by a different artist. This issue features cover art by underground and Garbage Pail Kids legend Jay Lynch and includes Baylis’s longest story yet about art, life, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, featuring bookends by Victor Kerlow (Everything Takes Forever) and interiors by Becky Hawkins (French Toast Comix). T.J. Kirsch (She Died in Terrebonne) tackles the perfect holiday gift and Sam Spina (Spinadoodles) exploits imperfect revenge.  Fred Hembeck is back again with a sequel to Baylis’s Marvel internship story followed by an appropriate solo piece by Josh Bayer about what it means to be an aging cartoonist in this industry.

About Teej Comix:

Teej Comix – 28 pages – $5 (color and b&w): A collection of short stories written and drawn by cartoonist T.J. Kirsch, co-creator of She Died in Terrebonne: A Sam Kimimura Mystery (with writer Kevin Church). Here, Kirsch explores comics based on dreams, visceral images and classic American animation archetypes.
