Comic Will Be Released This October

According to publisher BOOM! Studios, Keanu Reeves is making his comic book debut with a 12-issue series titled BRZRKR.

Berzerker is a 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.

Speaking about the new project, Reeves said –

“I have loved comics since I was a young kid and they have been a significant influence on me artistically,”

“To have the chance to create BRZRKR and collaborate with legends in the industry like writer Matt Kindt, artist Alessandro Vitti, color artist Bill Crabtree, letterer Clem Robins, and conceptual/cover artist Rafael Grampá – along with the great folks at BOOM! Studios – is a dream come true.”

In addition to Reeves himself, the creative team behind the comic includes writer Matt Kindt and artist Alessandro Vitti.

The first issue of BRZRKR will be released on October 7th.
