A WAR WITH NO END, A MAN WITH NO LIMITS.

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 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.

Keanu Reeves makes his comic book writing debut alongside New York Times bestselling co-writer Matt Kindt (Folklords, Grass Kings) and acclaimed artist Ron Garney (Juggernaut) in a brutally violent new series about one immortal warrior’s fight through the ages.

Review: BRZRKR #2

BRZRK2 #2

BRZRKR has been an interesting series so far. While entertaining, the comic feels like a blatant pitch for a film (which is coming along with an animated series). While not a horrible thing, there’s a focus on big exciting sequences that will play well on screen but not as much in a static image. The first issue teased the concept of the story, playing out like an opening act full of action to suck you in. BRZRKR #2 dials things back a bit focusing on its main character B and giving us an origin story somewhat.

Now working for the US government, the immortal B is an ultimate warrior able to get into harm’s way, take damage, and eventually heal. The first issue hinted at it, but it’s BRZRKR #2 where we experience the profound sadness B has experienced in his life. With a story by Keanu Reeves and Matt Kindt, the second issue has B talking to a doctor recounting what he remembers of his life. He talks about his early years and what he was told about his birth. While specifics aren’t given, there are hints as to the character’s origin and where his immortality comes from.

What we learn about B is that he was a warrior from birth. There’s a “feral” nature about him. And, like any weapon, he needs to be focused and pointed in the right direction. Without that sort of guidance, he seems to fall deep into the death and destruction he’s fueled by. We also get a sense this isn’t the life he wants. There are some interesting phrases thrown out and discussions, but it’s clear B is tired of his very long life. There’s some sympathy conveyed and empathy for us to give towards the living weapon.

And it’s impressive in some ways. Ron Garney’s art delivers a symphony of destruction. Blood flies as people are eviscerated in battle in gruesome ways. With color by Bill Crabtree, there’s a splattering of red as B goes on a path of destruction multiple times in the issue. But, the art also delivers a sadness through it all. The visuals show us the weariness and tiredness of B as he recounts his story. The weight of his life is clear in his body language and facial expressions.

BRZKR #2 is an interesting issue. It dials back the violence and action delivering a focus on the origin of the main character. While it keeps up some action, the focus is more on the character than the visuals like the debut. What happens next will be intriguing as the series has shaken up expectations of what comes next.
