Press release

BOOM! The studio is proud to announce BRZRKR, twelve songs from a limited edition of the legendary Keanu Reeves’ first Must read comic featuring New York Times bestselling author Matt Kindt (Folklore, Bang!) and famous artist Alessandro Wittie (Marvel’s Secret Warriors), colorist Bill Crabtree (BRPD) and later Clem Robins (Hellboy) in a brutal new series about the struggle of an immortal warrior through the ages. BRZRKR No. 1 makes its comic book debut in October 2020.

A man known only as Berzerker, half mortal and half god, cursed and forced to violence … even with the sacrifice of his mind.  But after centuries of walking around the world, Berzerker may finally have found a refuge: he works for the American government to fight battles that are too cruel and dangerous for everyone. In return Berzerker gets the only thing he wants – the truth about his infinite and bloody existence and how to end it.

I’ve loved comic books since I was a kid, and they’ve had a great artistic influence on me, Reeves said. Be happy to found BRZRKR and work with industrial legends such as writer Matt Kindt, painter Alessandro Vitti, colour artist Bill Crabtree, lifesaver Clem Robins and designer/painter Raphael Grampa – with the great people of BOOM! Studios are dreams come true.

Matt Kindt is the author of the New York Times bestseller and painter in the comics and comics section. H, Mind MGMT, Revolver, 3 Story, Superspy, 2 Sisters and Pistol Whip and Folk Lord Writer, Black Badge and Eisner nominated for Grass Kings with BUMM! Studios, Bang! and Ether with Dark Horse Comics, American Justice League with DC Comics, Spider-Man with Marvel Comics and Unity, Ninjak, Paradise and Divinity with Valiant Comics. He has won the PubWest Book Design Award, has been nominated for six Eisner Awards and six Harvey Awards (and has won once). His works have been published in French, Spanish, Italian, German and Korean.

The best collaboration is when each partner brings something unique to the table. In BRZRKR we have put together a powerful cocktail of everything we love: a fairy tale of an immortal warrior full of history, conspiracies, spirituality and the gigantic help of madness and violence – all with intense intention and ultimately heartbreaking discovery, according to Kindt.

Alessandro Vitti is an Italian cartoonist known for his work with publishers in Italy, France and the United States. Vitti has worked with Brendon and Saguaro for the Italian publisher Sergio Bonelli Editore. He was an artist in the Secret Warriors series with Jonathan Hickman and Iceman with Sina Grace, as well as in several other successful series for Marvel Entertainment, Hardcore with Andy Diggle for Skybound, Suiciders : Kings HelL.A. with Lee Bermeho for Vertigo and Red Lanterns with Charles Saul for DC Comics. Vitti is also co-author of Red Dreadlocks with Matteo Strukul, published by Lateral Studio.

I was in New York at the time! The studio contacted me about BRZRKR and when I saw that I was going to work with Matt Kindt and Keanu Reeves, I was immediately excited because I knew it was going to be an incredible experience, says Vitti. And I was right! This series has everything I love to paint, and I can’t wait to bring it to the stores so we can share it with all of you!

BRZRKR #1 contains the main covers of superstar illustrator Rafael Gramp (The Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child) and cover versions of Witty and artist Mark Brooks (Star Wars: Han Solo). Fans visiting Boom! Discover your studio panel on the 26th. July, 11 am PT, on [protected by email] will receive a special preview of previously unseen interior art, as well as behind the scenes information about the series and what to expect! For more information, please visit www.comic-con.org/.

Keanu is an unparalleled creative force, and it was a unique experience to work together on his first comic book series, says Matt Gagnon, editor-in-chief of BOOM! The studios. The great Matt Kindt, one of my favourite creators, works with Keanu on the scripts, the brilliant Alessandro Vitti illustrates the series down to the smallest detail and the always phenomenal Raphael Grampa delivers stunning covers. BRZRKR is a visceral and virtuoso comic epic.
