Hollywood megastar and the Internet’s current favourite celebrity, Keanu Reeves, is making his writing debut with his first comic titled BRZRKR.

Reeves will also star in the “brutally violent” comic book series as Berzerker, an immortal soldier be who has been wandering the earth for centuries getting recruited by the U.S. government to go on top secret missions. The official synopsis reads:

“The man known only as Berzerker 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, Berzerker 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, Berzerker will be granted the one thing he desires – the truth about his endless blood-soaked existence…and how to end it.”


Reeves co-wrote the upcoming 12-issue series BRZRKR with Matt Kindt for Boom! Studios. “I have loved comics since I was a young kid and they have been a significant influence on me artistically,” said Reeves in an official announcement on Boom!’s website.

“To have the chance to create BRZRKR and collaborate with legends in the industry like writer Matt Kindt, artistAlessandro Vitti, color artist Bill Crabtree, letterer Clem Robins, and conceptual/cover artist Rafael Grampá – along with the great folks at BOOM! Studios – is a dream come true,” he added.

BRZRKR will be a 12-part series and is slated to release in October.
