How horrible could the origin of Evil Ernie's best friend, Smiley the Psychotic Button, possibly be? Well... it involves Lucifer, mass murder, massive citizen complacency, the struggle to control hell, and the tastiest hamburgers your hard-earned 99 cents can buy, so horrible might not be descriptive enough. Plus, in a very special back up story, heaven unleashes its own trinket to battle the Smiley! The Holy Bedazzler is born!

    Raicht is a very talented horror writer, and CHAOS is a great place for him.  Dynamite would do well to keep him in the horror and horror/action comics. Read Full Review

    All in all, Smiley the Psychotic Button is a fun and wacky reinvention of a truly unique character. Smiley's new origin gives him an added depth that he didn't really have before. With the exception of that head-scratching penultimate page, Smiley the Psychotic Button is an enjoyably twisted horror book, chock-full of the wicked sense of humor that Chaos! is notorious for.

    Clearly, the through line between these stories is some sort of screed against consumerism, along with a less than subtle hint that deals struck with the devil tend to go wrong. At least Dynamite's Chaos! imprint is most definitely living up to the connotations of it's name, I guess. As I said at the beginning, I don't know if this comic is aimed at the 'Young Adult' market, but I do know I would have loved it 25 years ago. Read Full Review
