BOOM! Studios just revealed a brand new Keanu Reeves signed BRZRKR #1 variant cover by Jonboy Meyers.
Check it out.
If you are unfamiliar with BRZRKR, it’s Keanu Reeves’ first foray into comic books as a writer. He’s teamed up with comic book pro Matt Kindt, who previously worked on Valiant Comics’ X-O Manowar and Divinity.
The writing duo are joined by artist Ron Garney, colorist Bill Crabtree, and letterer Clem Robins.
The story follows a demigod named B who has been cursed to commit violence that is slowly causing him to lose sanity. However, he might have finally found a way to end the curse by cooperating with the United States government.
Here’s the official description:
“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.”
The first issue of BRZRKR will feature a main cover by Rafael Grampá as well as variant covers by Mark Brooks, Lee Bermejo, and Dan Mora. The Jonboy Meyers cover will be a 1-in-1000 signed edition variant.
BRZRKR #1 is expected to exclusively hit comic book shops on February 24, 2021.
