LOS ANGELES, CA (January 26, 2021) – BOOM! Studios today revealed brand new variant cover art for the highly anticipated BRZRKR #1, by award-winning artist Dan Mora (Future State: Dark Detective). The limited edition variant cover will be made available to comic book stores as an undressed edition featuring only the cover art as a 1-in-200 incentive. BRZRKR is a twelve-issue limited series by the iconic Keanu Reeves and New York Times bestselling co-writer Matt Kindt (Folklords, Bang!), acclaimed artist Ron Garney (Wolverine, Captain America), colorist Bill Crabtree (BPRD), and letterer Clem Robins (Hellboy), about an immortal being’s eternal struggle with the hidden truth behind his existence, available in comic book stores worldwide on February 24, 2021.
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.
BRZRKR #1 features main cover art by superstar illustrator Rafael Grampá (Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child) and variant cover art by superstar artists Mark Brooks (House of X/Powers of X), Lee Bermejo (Batman), and Mora, as well as a 1-in-1000 variant cover with art by Jonboy Meyers (Venom) and signed by Keanu Reeves, and more.
