BOOM! Studios has announced BRZRKR #2 has sold out of its first printing at the distributor level. Given the first issue sold over 600,000 copies, this comes as no surprise though no hard numbers were shared for the second issue selling out.
If you can’t find BRZRKR #2 in your comic shop–set for release on April 28th–fear not as the second printing copy will be available May 19th. You can preview the second issue here.

What’s BRZRKR #2 about?
U.S. government doctor Diana Ahuja seeks to unlock the mysterious B.’s memories – lifetimes of violence and tragedy like no one else who has ever lived that began with a fateful decision 80,000 years ago. But is Diana here to help him…or is she serving a darker agenda?

LOS ANGELES, CA (April 20, 2021) – BOOM! Studios announced today that BRZRKR #2, the latest issue of the first ever original comic book series from 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, has sold out of the first printing at the distributor level! The inaugural issue has already sold over 615,000 copies at the distributor level, making it the highest-selling original comic book launch in almost thirty years.
In response to the overwhelming support from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios has announced the BRZRKR #2 SECOND PRINTING with brand new variant cover art by fan favorite artist Dan Mora (Once & Future, Detective Comics).
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.
