LOS ANGELES, CA (April 20, 2021) – BOOM! Studios announced today that BRZRKR #2, the latest issue of the first ever original comic book series from the iconic Keanu Reeves and New York Times bestselling co-writer Matt Kindt (Folklords, Bang!), acclaimed artist Ron Garney (Wolverine, Captain America), colorist Bill Crabtree (BPRD), and letterer Clem Robins (Hellboy), about an immortal being’s eternal struggle with the hidden truth behind his existence, has sold out of the first printing at the distributor level! The inaugural issue has already sold over 615,000 copies at the distributor level, making it the highest-selling original comic book launch in almost thirty years.
In response to the overwhelming support from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios has announced the BRZRKR #2 SECOND PRINTING with brand new variant cover art by fan favorite artist Dan Mora (Once & Future, Detective Comics).
The man known only as B. 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, 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.
BRZRKR #2 SECOND PRINTING will be available exclusively at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) on May 19, 2021.
