Keanu Reeves Will Co-Write BRZRKR Comic For Boom! Studios

Comic-Con@Home may not arrive until next week, but Boom! Studios isn’t waiting to make one of its big announcements. Via USA Today, film star Keanu Reeves is set to make his comic book debut this fall with the BRZRKR 12-issue miniseries. Reeves will co-write the series alongside comic book veteran Matt Kindt, and the lead character’s appearance will also be inspired by Reeves.

Alessandro Vitti will provide the artwork for the series, while Rafael Grampá and Mark Brooks contributing covers. Boom! Studios also released a statement from Reeves, in which he shared his excitement for the project.

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

Here’s the official description from Boom! Studios:

“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.”

Additionally, Boom! Studios debuted two covers and five unlettered interior pages from BRZRKR #1. You can check them out in our gallery below. The first issue will hit comic book stores in October.
