John Wagner and Arthur Ranson’s creator-owned crime thriller, Button Man, is deservedly regarded as one of the greatest strips ever to be published in 2000 AD. Optioned by Dreamworks for a big screen adaptation directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, this is the first time the three volumes have been collected together. An ex-soldier and mercenary, Harry Exton was a human-killing machine without a vocation, until an old colleague told him about ‘The Game’. The players, known as ‘Button Men’, are 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!
