Keanu Reeves and BOOM Studios brings us ‘BRZRKR,’ a comic book series that continues with issue 6. It is co-written by Matt Kindt with artwork by Ron Garney.
When a mission deep in Europe goes wrong, the Berserker and the only other survivor Jim are lost in the mountains. At first, they discuss escaping by sea, but the Berserker decides to travel through the mountains, helping Jim along. At first, Jim does not care for his seemingly immortal companion, but as they travel through dangerous terrain, the two develop a rapport. Little do they know, someone is listening.
Not to repeat myself, but 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. I also liked how he draw the quieter moments of this issue. He truly brought out the Berserker and his desire to be mortal with his expressions and body language.
The series continues to impress me. This time, we get to see the Berserker have a one-on-one interaction with a fellow soldier instead of a government bureaucrat or a therapist. To me, this gave the character much more depth as they go through the mountains. The story does a good job of continuing the saga and I cannot wait to see what comes next.
