For over a 100 years Teddy Bears have been the Guardians of bedtime, the loving confidants, the peaceful playmate and child hood companion. While you sleep they watch over keeping you safe from the Monsters under the bed… and wake you with soft hugs and love in the morning.
Mr. Button is not one of those Teddy Bears – this of course you may have guessed at. This psychotic ball of fluff aims to end the Monsters under the bed and the Boogeyman permanently…
How can I best describe what the Mr. Button comic is? Imagine Evil Dead and Ted have had a bastard Love child and then a sprinkle a bit of Kick-Ass mayhem on top. Mr Button is on a mission to burn down all imaginary figureheads of our childhood and he is starting with the Boogeyman.
Mr Button’s: One Shot, is a very different Teddy Bear Tale. We join this Teddy Bear as he journeys into the realm of the Underbed, this is one Teddy Bear on a mission to end the Lord Of Nightmares and you are along for the ride…This is the project page for Mr Button. Here you can learn a little bit more about the story, take a look at the art – from roughs to completed pages and even pre-order the book. Our initial planned release date is July 5, 2016.
What Is The Story?
We join Mr. Button and his reluctant companion, the Narrator (Mr Fancy Pants), as they journey into the Realm Of UnderBed – home to the Boogeyman and his Legions of Monsters under the bed. Slowly he makes his way to the Boogeyman’s Castle, leaving a trail of broken Monsters in his wake. You see Mr. Button is out to take revenge on the Lord Of Nightmares and to show him what true fear really is. To find out how it all ends, you’ll have to pick up the book! You can preview the pages below – but be warned they may not be completely safe for work.

I tend to like the idea of taking the cute and cuddly and giving them a little attitude -- okay, in this case, quite a lot -- so when I saw the Mr Button Kickstarter, I knew I wanted in.A few small editing issues and the fact the story really deserves to be expanded to 32 pages keeps it from being five stars for me, but if you had ever thought that the Care Bears should just quietly send in someone to take out Coldheart, or (a more direct comparison) if you want a slightly softer and cuddlier version of The Punisher, this just may be your comic.The art is great and the story will keep you turning the pages. The balance between comedy and action is nearly spot-on, and the balance between cute and badass is almost perfect as well. So, if you think this might appeal to you, I'd say it's worth the $3-5 to find out.The comic may be called One Shot, but it looks like Mr Button has a lot more work to do. Who's next? I can't wait to find out.
A twisted, fun comic book that breaks the fourth wall. Fav line 'I'm trying to be all intimidating' while staring down the Pit monster.
