Keanu Reeves partners with comic book writer Matt Kindt to bring us the fifth issue of BRZRKR, published with Boom Studios after a successful crowdfunding campaign. Ron Garney handles the illustrations.
The military psychiatrist visits the Berserker in his home to question him, since both are growing frustrated with the testing to determine what gave him his immortality. Taking a different tactic, she asks him about whether or not he has fallen in love. The Berserker tells her about his first love, a young tribal woman he met shortly after his confrontation with his father. This led to disaster and death, which he finds to be a constant circle when he seeks out love.
With five issues down, we have seven more to go and it is ramping up. First of all, Garney continues to provide quality illustrations that bring the story to life. It has the right amount of roughness and grittiness for a story that requires this amount of violence to be shown.
The plot continues to thicken. Though this story takes a step back and focuses on the personal side of the Berserker, though it does not tone down at all. It continues to raise the stakes with the protagonist and where it will lead is anyone’s guess.
