BOOM! Studios and Keanu Reeves’ comic BRZRKR has been delayed multiple times in the past to ensure quality control, but now that BRZRKR #1 has sold over 600,000 copies, it will once again be delaying a month so they have ample time to print. The on-sale date for copies, including the foil variants, will now release March 24. Last week, news came about that the comic was the highest selling comic since 2015’s Star Wars #1, and BOOM! Studios’ most sold comic and single-issue since the Big Trouble in Little China/Escape From New York #1 crossover.
BRZRKR #1‘s synopsis is as follows:
(W) Matt Kindt, Keanu Reeves (A) Ron Garney (CA) Rafael Grampa
Discover the next blockbuster action franchise from the iconic KEANU REEVES in his Must Read comic book writing debut alongside New York Times best-selling co-writer Matt Kindt (Folklords, Bang!) and acclaimed artist Alessandro Vitti (Marvel’s Secret Warriors) in a brutally violent new series about one immortal warrior’s fight through the ages. 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.
