Crimson Flower is a New Mind-Bending Series from Matt Kindt, Matt Lesniewski, and Bill Crabtree

From New York Times-bestselling Mind MGMT creator Matt Kindt with illustrator Matt Lesniewski and colorist Bill Crabtree comes a brand-new, mind-altering journey through Russian folk tales, trained assassins, and government conspiracies in Crimson Flower! Crimson Flower will sport variant covers for each issue from artists including Malachi Ward, Patric Reynolds with Lee Loughridge, Marguerite Sauvage, and Tyler Bence with Bill Crabtree.

After losing her family in a violent home invasion, a woman uses folk tales to cope. In a blood-soaked journey toward revenge, she tracks down the man responsible for her family’s deaths, only to discover a startling government plot—to weaponize folk tales and use them to raise children into super assassins.

Crimson Flower #1 (of 4) will hit comic shops January 20, 2021.

BOOM! Kicks Keanu Reeves, Matt Kindt, and Ron Garney’s BRZRKR to Kickstarter

As part of a campaign to bring new readers to comics BOOM! Studios has announced that BRZRKR, the new series from the iconic Keanu Reeves alongside New York Times bestselling co-writer Matt Kindt, superstar artist Ron Garney, colorist Bill Crabtree, and letterer Clem Robins, will be offered in complete graphic novel sets through Kickstarter. The full campaign can be found here at Kickstarter.

Fans will have an opportunity to pre-order all three graphic novel collections of the new series in regular, limited edition and ultra-rare, premium formats through October 1 at 12:00 pm PDT. BRZRKRgraphic novel collections offered through Kickstarter will begin shipping alongside the book market release of BRZRKR Vol.1 in September 2021, with subsequent volumes shipping at the same time as their book market counterparts (unless otherwise noted for later delivery).

The move by BOOM! signals Kickstarter’s continued shift from a crowdfunding platform to a distribution platform. This shifts the site to another socially driven distribution channel. In the announcement, it’s clear that the publisher is working directly with Kickstarter’s Head of Publishing and Comics, Margot Atwell. Kickstarter has been criticized over the years that their platform is no longer for “new projects in need of funding” and instead has shifted to be a pre-order system for product already being released. Kickstarter has in the past pushed back at this claim but with this project, all pretenses are gone.

In this brutally violent new series, 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.

In a prohibition-era world where demonic entities pull the strings that make the crime families dance, Eddie is a mortal with two things working for him. First of all, he can’t die. Well, he can and does, quite often, but he doesn’t stay that way long. Second, Eddie runs the Gehenna Room, a nightclub with a strict “no demons allowed” policy. But blessings and curses don’t look all that different these days. When one of Eddie’s old pals shows up seeking sanctuary, Eddie knows he’s in for a double-cross. That means walking the line between salvation and damnation once more. Collects the 5-issue “Ill-Gotten” storyline from The Damned.
