John Wick and Bill & Ted Face The Music star, and overall beloved human Keanu Reeves is making his comic book debut with BRZRKR, which recently earned over $300,000 on Kickstarter in a single day. Writer Matt Kindt, artist Alessandro Vitti, and Reeves’s book will be published by BOOM! Studios and is scheduled to hit shelves this fall.
Over on Twitter, writer Donny Cates recounted a meeting he had with Keanu Reeves, and he also revealed that the “sad Keanu” meme will be immortalized in the book’s pages.
When I had my meeting with Keanu (which was lovely) for what would eventually become BRZRKR, he mentioned that he thought it would be funny if we recreated the “sad Keanu” meme in the book.
VERY happy to see that idea stuck around. pic.twitter.com/ISDc6TfmWa

The Kickstarter for BRZRKR describes the book as “A graphic novel series about an immortal warrior seeks only one thing: the truth about his blood-soaked existence… and how to end it!” You can support the Kickstarter today to receive exclusive rewards.
