A complete collection of John Wagner and Arthur Ranson’s brutal crime noir comic, Button Man, is now available in the UK for the first time.
Previously only available in North America, Button Man: Get Harry Ex contains all three books of this hard-hitting, visceral exploration of violence, revenge, and manipulation by two of British comics’ best creators at the top of their game. This collected edition is now available from 2000 AD’s webshop.
The world didn’t seem to need a man like Harry Exton anymore – an ex-soldier and mercenary, Harry was a human killing machine without a vocation, until an old colleague told him about ‘The Game’. The players, known as ‘Button Men’ paid to fight to the death in a modern-day gladiatorial contest. Organised by mysterious backers known as ‘Voices’, the killing game offers bountiful financial rewards... if you live.
Harry decides to participate, but soon discovers that death offers the only way out!
Deservedly regarded as one of the greatest strips ever to be published in 2000 AD, this collection brings together all three books of this action-packed thriller – previously only available separately in the UK – giving readers the chance to savour the depth of Ranson’s extraordinarily crisp artwork and the economy of Wagner’s hard-bitten writing all in one go.
