    It's 48 pages, but reads as if there were 24. It's lots of ultra violence, which gives it the distinct impression that it was written by a 13-year-old. It's The Old Guard, and another couple of dozen comics you have read. Its main character looks like Keanu Reeves, with a constant face as if he's trying to push out a particularly hard turd. It's Boom doing an Image comic. It's 48 pages, but reads as if there were 24. It's lots of ultra violence, which gives it the distinct impression that it was written by a 13-year-old.

    Heh. I surprisingly enjoyed this! I had no expectations going in and now I'm really interested where this will go. Cool idea and super bloody and gory. Fun stuff. 3.5 rounded up for Sad Keanu lol. Heh. I surprisingly enjoyed this! I had no expectations going in and now I'm really interested where this will go. Cool idea and super bloody and gory.

    Well, sadly this was just one issue but it did make me curious. We follow some kind of warrior who works for or at least with the US military. And he's ... special. He doesn't seem to feel pain or ignores it amazingly well. Not to mention the awesome healing abilities. I mean, it's no spoiler, the secret's in the title. *lol* It's an interesting take on the myth what with the bio-tech lab we get to see. Should make for an interesting mix of old story and modern spins. Obviously, the main character Well, sadly this was just one issue but it did make me curious.

Should make for an interesting mix of old story and modern spins. Obviously, the main character (nameless for now) is modelled after Keanu Reeves himself, only bulkier. But I don't mind that at all. The art is gritty, most of the colours during combat are reds and browns and blacks while the colour palette switches to blues and a few greens for the panels showing the research facility. Like I said, too short a glimpse into the story but enough to make me want to keep reading (but I think I'll wait for the entire volume to come out). :) P.S.: Yes, it's full of blood and gore ... what did you expect of a story about a berserker?! *snickers*

A lethal magical killer in the hunt for mortality. We’ve seen this before, but I believe Reeves will find a way to give it a 180° spin and create an original development for the story. The cliffhanger in the end is great and I believe is the one thing that will let the storyline take distance from the iconic characters I’ve mentioned before. Finally, the art work is incredible! I was surprised by how gory it is, but the details are quite nice. Looking forward to reading issue #2! Note: from now on I’ll be writing reviews only on full volumes of this series.

    BRZRKR #1 is written by Keanu Reeves and Matt Kindt with art BY Ron Garney and colors by Bill Crabtree. I pre-ordered the complete collected editions of BRZRKR last year when it was on Kickstarter. Now that the first issue is out, I wanted to get a better idea of what the story was going to look like. The first issue has our main character on a focused quest to take out his target. Simple enough.

I really didn't know anything about the book going in other than the creative team so I really liked the reveal at the end. The art is strong and brutal and reminds very much of the action heavy titles from the 90s. This is looking like a really promising action series!

    This was an impulse buy, so other than knowing about Keanu's Kickstarter campaign, I knew nothing going in. This is way outside my normal reading, but I liked it. I didn't care why he was doing what he was doing. I wanted to know more about the conversational narrative taking place over the action. It would've been nice to know if the "blue" speaker was male or female for context, but I definitely heard Keanu's voice for the title character.

The panels told their story, the narrative told its, and in between, we got clues to put together. I'm curious enough to buy the next one. I want to know his origin.

    Holy [email protected]&! That was without question the MOST violent comic book I have ever read in my life. BRZRKR makes John Wick seem tamer than the “It’s A Small World” theme park ride at Disney World. There’s not a ton of script here, which is fine for some — I just prefer a little bit more of a structured narrative as I move along. It’s also clear that Keanu isn’t just a tactic to push books: he’s really writing this. As you read along, you can actually hear his voice in your head.

Certainly so. As we learned in The Matrix “everybody falls the first time.” But overall this is an absolutely phenomenal first glance at a series with a ton of potential. Action fans rejoice — our new hero is here and his name is BRZRKR!

From my wandering mind, this comic has amazing art and action violence makes this character be in the new Mortal Kombat Game. And I recommend this for those that like the series The Boys, Mortal Kombat Fatalities, Rambo, and John Wick to read his new amazing series and I can't wait for issue 2 in April 14th.

    Overall, BRZRKR #1 is an intriguing opening issue. It is bursting with violent action and bloodied bodies, as the Berzerker roars through his mission taking absolutely no prisoners. The writing is concise and the art is kinetic and visceral. It’s not for the faint-hearted. If you are looking for no holds barred comic book action with Keanu Reeves in the leading role, look no further. No masterpiece yet, but it has hooked me enough to look forward to the second issue.

    Ok I was into this. This is the fastest I’ve ever read a 48 page comic. The first 2 3rds of the book are all action with not much dialogue. This action is damn gory and bloody as hell with a little extra gore. I mean damn. The last 3rd of the book is where the “hook” happens for me. We learn a vital thing about the main character. Once I saw this plot idea I thought of The Old Guard. Only this guy is waaaayy older than ol girl from that book. Way....older. Anyway, cool premise and execution for Ok I was into this.

    3,5/5. I felt very ambiguous about this one. Should I read it or not? I finally decided to have a go at tit and see what it was all about. The art was a bit too old school in the color and polish to be at the level I would have like it to be. There is a lot of action and it gets gory enough, could be good or bad depending on your taste. I didn't mind it, even like it at places. The story is alright, but not really original, this is some sort of new Wolverine, not exactly but you get my point... 3,5/5.

    I'd read Keanu Reeves wanted to write a comic book and I was very eager to read it. It's actually quite good, at least from this initial issue, we get to see the main character in action and it's very gory, but it's actually quite well-written and makes me want to read the next part. It's part John Wick, part Old Guard, but so much more. A relentless immortal warrior set on a path, waiting for mortality to be unveiled for him.

    Two things got my attention with this: Keanu Reeves wrote it and he seems to actually STAR in it. I thought: why the hell not? Lol, I just read the 9/10's of this issue, going, well, now, flying eyeballs and extra hardcore gore, I guess I know where to classify this one. Is there anything else? And then the last bit got my attention. Not to put too fine a term on it, but I think we might be getting a little tale about (view spoiler)[immortality (hide spoiler)] and that's all kinds of fun.

    The Very first thing Keanu Reeves does in this issue is takes his John Wick game and cranks it up to beast mode, I mean he pulks a man's rib out and stabs another man to death with it, not to mention he rips out a president's heart out with his bare hand in front of his kid, this is a promise that this is gonna be one blood soaked story with a lot of bone breaking, head snapping, and gore busting out like a motherfucker(pardon the language), looking forward to the next issue The Very first thing Keanu Reeves does in this issue is takes his John Wick game and cranks it up to beast mode, I mean he pulks a man's rib out and stabs another man to death with it, not to mention he rips out a president's heart out with his bare hand in front of his kid, this is a promise that this is gonna be one blood soaked story with a lot of bone breaking, head snapping, and gore busting out like a motherfucker(pardon the language), looking forward to the next issue

    Keanu Reeves first foray into comics, violent and bloody the comic will definitely draw comparisons to John Wick in the first few pages - mostly because the main character has been drawn to look like Reeves. As the story continues we start to see sprinkles of an interesting story appear but it never quite seems to grab your interest totally, however this is a first issue so maybe I’m being too harsh. Illustration style reminded me a lot of the walking dead / image comics style.

    Keanu Reeves wrote and is starring in this comic book. As a fan of his work, I decided to give this a try. At first, I thought it was okay, over-the-top violence with an immortal Keanu massacring bad guys for 3/4 of the book. Then the ending happened and it really piqued my interest. An ending that may go into a story about immortality and humanity's history. So fingers cross that this series turns into something special. Keanu Reeves wrote and is starring in this comic book.

    A somewhat interesting introspection of an immortal being seeking to be able to die. It is not the most original story, but it would be attractive for the people interested in works like Metal Gear Solid, John Wick or God of War. There are a lot of inside jokes if you are aware of Keanu's public personae. A somewhat interesting introspection of an immortal being seeking to be able to die.

    Overall a solid first issue. Yes is it violent and gory, but it lays the groundwork for an intriguing series. I like how it didn’t dwell too much on origin in this first issue and just set the stage for where the story is now. The premise is unlocking his past while looking forward to his future in a very bloody and brutal way. They achieved that and I look forward to the next issue

    I read this with the expectation of Keanu putting the hurt on some fools and I was not disappointed. Great opening with lots of cool art It's not that wordy but to be honest I kind of like that for an opener. Would definitely recommend to 90's comic fans. I came for the action and It left me with a satisfying body count and wanting to know more about this mystery immortal assassin character known as Brzrkr. Can't wait till the next issue .Worth the read. I read this with the expectation of Keanu putting the hurt on some fools and I was not disappointed.

    Quite an interesting setup for the future series. It has a lot of violence and gore but personally I enjoy it so can't complain about that. I hope they'll bring more story into the next issues because basically the 1st one is an introduction so don't expect much from it. Also not surprised that there will be an adaptation with Keanu himself, he's caught a huge wave recently :D Quite an interesting setup for the future series.

    The violence is way over the top, but the gritty style feels at home with the concept. For a 48-page first issue, it honestly does not feel long-winded (likely due to the balance of little dialogue/lots of violence), so I’m eager to read more of this immortal version of Keanu Reeves and how the creative team dives into the rest of the story!

    Final Rating: 3.5 This was really intriguing and extremely violent. Like, half of this book was just people’s brains and hearts being ripped out of them. But I found the whole concept really intriguing, and the ending made me want to know what was going to happen next. The artwork was pretty wild too!

    I read this because I’m a Keanu Reeves fan and I enjoyed the John Wick films. Plus I read that this comic is being adapted for streaming. I liked the artwork. The story is pretty straight forward so far, not too dissimilar from stories/films/TV series about immortal beings tortured by their long lives. The detail on the violence was a bit much but at least it was short. I don’t know about reading the rest of the individual issues. This might be better to wait for a collected volume.

Curious to see where this goes, but so far a fairly well-worn comic-book intro: ultimate fighter who can regenerate/never die is fighting the US government's battles for them, in exchange for some insight into who or what he really is. But this time the ultimate fighter looks a lot like Keanu Reeves, and is apparently 80,000 years old? All right, that's a new one. Show us what you've got, Keanu.

    BRZRKR #1 is an interesting beginning to a Keanu Reeves satirical commentary. By going into how the memes that catapulted his career made him like an undying god, Reeves and the creative team parody oversaturation. Probably i'll continue to see where it's going.

    I enjoyed this issue quite a bit. I would honestly give it 4-5 stars if it didn't feel so familiar. I know many people have drawn similarities to Wolverine and I 100% agree with that. Ultra violent and fast paced action, but a story that I feel like I already know. I enjoyed this issue quite a bit. I would honestly give it 4-5 stars if it didn't feel so familiar.

    Good art by Garney. The story idea isn't anything new but it's a still fun take on the immortal man. The captions are extremely repetitive, even if it's light on words, the content is 50% redundant. Barely good enough for a second issue for me. Good art by Garney.

    Pretty much as i was expecting .Nothing is very original so far but that is ok .It was never intended to be.this is good for Boom a lot of first issue sold , because of Keanu involvement . Let's hope this comics will develop into something more to keep the reader for the entire 12 issues.

    not too bad, pretty quick read as most of the pages are mainly illustrated violence (which i don't mind personally just fair warning). it's only the first issue; i'm intrigued enough to check out the rest when they're released not too bad, pretty quick read as most of the pages are mainly illustrated violence (which i don't mind personally just fair warning). it's only the first issue; i'm intrigued enough to check out the rest when they're released
