Keanu Reeves is still a hot commodity. The Kickstarter for BRZRKR went over like gangbusters when it was announced Keanu was tied to the comic book. Not only is he tied to the comic, the main character is based on his likeness.
We find out in this first issue that the BRZRKR character is immortal and is working with a Black Ops military team. There is someone who is able to speak to him in his head. They are monitoring all his vital signs during his missions. They notice activity in some of his synapses that have gone unused for a long time. BRZRKR starts having memories come back. That is when we find out just how old BRZRKR actually is.
BRZRKR reminds me of Highlander mixed up with John Wick. He is a killing machine that can’t be killed himself. In fact that is the one thing he is searching for, mortality!
BOOM! Studios today revealed a brand new trailer for BRZRKR #1, the premiere issue of the twelve-issue limited series from the iconic Keanu Reeves in his Must Read comic book writing debut alongside New York Times bestselling co-writer Matt Kindt (Folklords, Bang!), acclaimed artist Ron Garney (Wolverine, Captain America), colorist Bill Crabtree (BPRD), and letterer Clem Robins (Hellboy), available on March 3, 2021.
The man known only as B. is half-mortal and half-god, cursed and compelled to violence…even at the sacrifice of his sanity. But after wandering the world for centuries, B. may have finally found a refuge – working for the U.S. government to fight the battles too violent and too dangerous for anyone else. In exchange, B. will be granted the one thing he desires – the truth about his endless blood-soaked existence…and how to end it.
BRZRKR #1 features main cover art by superstar illustrator Rafael Grampá (Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child) and variant cover art by superstar artists Mark Brooks (House of X/Powers of X), Dan Mora (Future State: Dark Detective), and Lee Bermejo (Batman), as well as a 1-in-1000 variant cover with art by Jonboy Meyers (Venom) and signed by Keanu Reeves, and more.
