5.0 out of 5 stars Best 2000 AD Story Ever! 8 Jan 2014
Enthralling! This is probably the best story I've read from 2000 AD! I had never heard the term "button man" before but oddly enough while I was reading this I also was reading a novel where one character said to another, you're not a button man you know. So, I looked it up and it is a real term used in the mafia, gangs, etc. meaning a low-ranking hired killer (ie. a muscle man). So this is what Harry is. He becomes entrapped in a high stakes "Killing Game", not fully aware of the permanence of the position. He becomes the best player around and then he wants out. So the rest of the stories surround Harry trying to get out of the game. Unusual coming from 2000 AD, this is realistic fiction (no sci-fi or fantasy here) with a top-notch thriller, espionage for bored business men "game" at its centre. An intense story, violent, and one where you never know what will happen next. Harry is a likeable guy, to a point. I was rooting for him, he was in an inescapable position, but on the other hand he is just as (more!) much a ruthless, heartless killer in the game as anyone else. This collection here brings together Books 1-3 of the strips from the comic magazine. The ending is quite shocking but a good finite conclusion to the book. However, there has been a continuation of the series and it has not been closed off as finished.

Being a fan i was looking forward to the fifth issue of this killer-series. What a dissapointment it's not an new issue but a collection of the first three: The Killing Game, The Confessions of Harry Exton and Killer Killer. For me a dissappoint, for others an exciting must read!!! The only pity is that they didn't collect the fourth issue in it, The Hitman's Daughter.

A brutal and bloody story, told with great panache. Fantastically illustrated and paced. Would highly recommend this to other readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get this book! 25 Nov 2013
By elektrophyte - Published on Amazon.com
Absolutely top notch. You just can't find artwork like this anywhere. It's amazing. The art style is realistic, yet at the same intense and energetic. Every page has panels that are just astonishing, often all of them. Comics are a tough medium. The demands on an artist are unreasonable. Ranson stepped up and delivered, and then some. Wagner's story, or sequence of stories, is powerful and intense. There's no fat on this thing anywhere. Every line of dialog, every panel, pushes the story and the action forward. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars You're A Cold Fish, Harry Ex.... 26 Jun 2014
By Edward M. Erdelac - Published on Amazon.com
This is the story of a former mercenary named Harry Exton who is recruited by an old compadre into a `game' in which soldiers of fortune are sponsored by wealthy investors (called Voices, because they're only heard on the telephone) to fight it out gladiatorial style in a variety of settings, from the nighted English countryside, to an abandoned tenement, to the very streets of London. There's a lot of `dosh' to be made, but Harry doesn't like being boxed in. After a particularly deadly game, on a whim to test his Voice, he wonders aloud what would happen if he were to up and quit. That's enough for the Voices, and in the very next game Harry is set up for the kill. But Harry X is a lot more resourceful than they think...
This is a great thriller which is bookended by a wounded Harry telling his incredible story to the doctor treating him. While the concept sounds like Hard Target, forget that bit of fluff. This is an extremely well crafted bit of British noir. The action is completely believable (if surpassingly violent at times). There are no slow mo two gun jumps from the fireball here. This is hard hitting, driven plotboiler with a lace of cool. The characters are as hard boiled as they come, and the story culminates in a classic twist.
The art here is gritty and realistic - perfectly married to the writing. And is it just me or does Harry look a great deal like Sean Bean? Buy this if you can get it - it delivers.

Arthur Ranson's art is absolutely superb. Button Man comes with an engaging plot, and reprints the entire run in an elegant, high-quality volume. Highly recommended.
