Just when you thought that was it with the Keanu Reeves fanboying, he ups the ante. The actor his seemingly taking his new endeavor with BOOM Studios to new heights. Of course I am talking about the BRZRKR (pronounced ‘Berserker’) – the comic series that Reeves himself co-authored and co-created.
BOOM Studios recently released a trailer for the comic book series, and we have to say the interior art is pretty nifty to say the least.
BOOM! Studios is proud to announce BRZRKR, a 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!) and acclaimed artist Ron Garney (Wolverine, Captain America), colorist Bill Crabtree (BRPD), and letterer Clem Robins (Hellboy) in a brutally violent new series about one immortal warrior’s fight through the ages. BRZRKR #1 is available in comic shops March 3rd. 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.
Now Reeves’ plan is certainly gaining momentum in a mini-verse type of way as it is announced the actor is developing not only a live-action movie based on the BRZRKR comic, but also an anime series destined for Netflix.
The new projects will be an expansion on the 12-episode limited series, which originated from an idea Reeves had been developing for a number of years.
The legendary action star makes his comic book debut with the series, written with New York Times bestselling writer Matt Kindt. The comic series is illustrated by famed Marvel artist Ron Garney, with colors by Bill Crabtree, letters by Clem Robins and character designs and covers by Rafael Grampá.
