Their live-action movie writer has a ‘Batman’ connection.
While you all know Keanu Reeves from his awesome work in countless movies, did you know he added something new to his resume: comic book writer. Earlier this year, Reeves and his co-writer Matt Kindt and artist Ron Garney released their new series BRZRKR (pronounced “berserker”) through BOOM! Studios and it immediately became one of the biggest original comics of the 21st century. With the first four issues being released as a graphic novel tomorrow, I recently had the chance to speak with them about the making of the series.
Before going any further, if you aren’t familiar with BRZRKR, the 12-issue series is about a “man known only as B. who's half-mortal and half-God, cursed and compelled to violence…even at the sacrifice of his sanity. However, 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.”
