A New Graphic Novel Series, Co-Written By Keanu Reeves Called BRZRKR, Smashes Kickstarter Goal
BOOM! Studios is bringing a new graphic novel to life, with the book being co-written by Keanu Reeves. BRZRKR is a planned comic book and graphic novel series about an immortal warrior seeking the truth about his blood-soaked existence & how to end it! The title character of Berserker, is a centuries old half-mortal & half-God warrior, who now works as an agent for the U.S. Government. He takes on dangerous missions in an action-packed, high-octane story, full of blood-soaked violence and gore.
This is the first comic book by Reeves, who is joined on the project by New York Times best-selling co-writer Matt Kindt (Folklords, Justice League of America), artist Ron Garney (Wolverine, Captain America), Eisner and Harvey Award-nominated colorist Bill Crabtree (BPRD) and letterer Clem Robins (Hellboy).
BRZRKR was announced back in July, and will launch later this year as a twelve issue comic book run. The Kickstarter campaign, launched at the beginning of September, is allowing backers to purchase all twelve issues combined into three graphic novels volumes, with 128 pages each (containing four comic book issues in each volume).
There are a number of tier rewards for backers, including soft or hardback versions, additional artwork and exclusive covers. The campaign was looking for $50,000 to succeed, but it smashed that within a matter of hours and currently sits at over $725,000. You have until the end of September to back the project.
Print copies of BRZRKR #1, for mature readers, will be available in October 2020 exclusively at local comic book shops or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers like comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Madefire.
The Kickstarter backers are set to get their BRZRKR Volume #1 by September 2021, with a estimated launch for Volume #2 in April 2022 and Volume #3 by September 2022.
