An all-new collection featuring stories from the immortal B.’s storied past.
LOS ANGELES, CA (October 19, 2023) – Created by the iconic Keanu Reeves, BRZRKR gets a brand new collection featuring a pair of stories set within the 80,000 year history of BRZRKR in BRZRKR: BLOODLINES Vol. 1, a softcover trade paperback hitting shelves Spring 2024.
The renowned and record-shattering Keanu Reeves is joined by writer/artist Steve Skroce, writer/director Mattson Tomlin, fan-favorite artist Rebekah Isaacs, and colorists Dave Stewart and Dee Cunniffe in two unforgettable, violent tales:
In Poetry of Madness, B. safeguards the ancient realm of Atlantis as its unstoppable protector. But a sickly monarch symbolizes the rot within the city and the cracks created by a secret cult might spell the end of the legendary kingdom, one beyond even B.’s ability to save.
In Fallen Empire, a former kingdom decimated by the BRZRKR has a single survivor…one who must have her story heard and recorded else the same fate befall another damned kingdom.
BRZRKR: BLOODLINES Vol. 1 collects BRZRKR: Poetry of Madness #1 and BRZRKR: Fallen Empire #1.
“BRZRKR is a wide, ever expanding sandbox that Keanu and I like inviting other to play in,” said Executive Editor Eric Harburn. “Bloodlines Vol. 1 is our first look into many more years of BRZRKR storytelling.”
BRZRKR: BLOODLINES Vol. 1 will be available in comic shops March 27, 2024 and in bookstores April 2, 2024. It is available for pre-order at your local comic shop, bookstore, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
