BOOM! reveals original creative team back for ‘BRZRKR: The Lost Book of B’

‘BRZRKR: The Lost Book of B’ is a new chapter in the bloody saga brings the immortal warrior to the 13th Century!

BOOM! Studios has announced BRZRKR: The Lost Book of B, available in comic shops this August, with Keanu Reeves, Matt Kindt, and Ron Garney returning for the next chapter in the BRZRKR universe. The first issue will be available in comic shops on August 21st.

BRZRKR was such a large scale project that I think we all needed to recover afterward…but I think we all had a feeling we’d be back,” said BRZRKR co-writer Matt Kindt. “This one is bigger and crazier than anything we’ve done before. Whatever you’re expecting, flip it upside down and multiply it by a thousand.”

So what’s BRZRKR: The Lost Book of B about?

This epic new chapter in the bloody saga brings the immortal warrior to the 13th Century!

B. serves as the ultimate weapon of the notorious warlord Ghengis Khan, and it seems that no enemy of his empire can withstand the Berserker’s onslaught of havoc and death. But as the war grows ever larger, B. must question where his loyalties should truly lie…

“It’s been very exciting to return to this sojourn of B. with the guys and delve back into the immersive world of BRZRKR–particularly in a story that involves the world’s greatest conqueror, Ghenghis Khan,” said series artist Ron Garney. “I’m a huge fan of period pieces visually and, better yet, getting to tell this story–which feels as though it truly was almost lost to history only to be recovered as if it were found written in scrolls in an ancient tomb. Or like reading Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey. This story is so rich in texture, nature, and lore. I’m having a blast and can imagine any new readers and long time fans will too.”

“These BRZRKR one-shots have been a fantastic opportunity for other incredible storytellers to explore B.’s 80,000 year blood-soaked existence,” said BRZRKR editor Ramiro Portnoy. “After opening that door into the character’s past, we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome the original creative forces of Keanu, Matt, Ron, and Bill back to tell B.’s most fierce and intense chapter yet!”

“The entire original BRZRKR creative team returning for The Lost Book of B is cause for major celebration,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief, Matt Gagnon. “Keanu Reeves, Matt Kindt, and Ron Garney have been in the lab pouring so much passion & craft into the creation of this special stand-alone story. And they’ve called down lightning once again. The Lost Book of B is a sweeping, visceral epic from a creative team that is firing on all cylinders.”
