BRZRKR #1
Writer: Matt Kindt, Keanu Reeves
Artist: Ron Garney
Publisher: BOOM! Studios
Cover Price: $4.99
Release Date: March 3, 2021
Discover the next blockbuster action franchise from the iconic KEANU REEVES in his Must Read comic book writing debut alongside New York Times best-selling co-writer Matt Kindt (Folklords, Bang!) and acclaimed artist Alessandro Vitti (Marvel's Secret Warriors) in a brutally violent new series about one immortal warrior's fight through the ages.

The man known only as Berzerker 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, Berzerker 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, Berzerker will be granted the one thing he desires - the truth about his endless blood-soaked existence… and how to end it.

On the trail of her father's killer, a young woman begins to blur the line between reality and fantasy as the folk tales from her childhood become more real than the world around her-and as she makes it one step further toward avenging her father, the line between justice and vengeance becomes equally fuzzy.
