Actor and writer Keanu Reeves, Matt Kindt, artist Ron Garney and BOOM Studios brings us ‘BRZRKR,’ a comic book series that continues with issue 7.
Caldwell, the shadowy government agent who is trying to unlock the secrets of the Berserker, speaks with the immortal warrior about his past. Berserker has vague memories, but not enough to make an informed clue about his origins or where he came from. Caldwell reveals a shocking secret to him about his power and where it might have originated.
The artwork continues to shine. Garney does a good job of developing the characters and his illustrations work well with the story. It has a flow of action that moves well and a good grasp of the historical part of the story.
As for the overall plot, I did find this one a bit lackluster. It pretty much goes back over what we know about the Berserker and only served as filler for the series. Unlike previous entries, this one had the action and gore turned down. That is fine, violent stories need a reprieve, but I felt like this one was just one build-up to the shocking discovery at the climax. It honestly could have been four pages, but I know Boom Studios wants to stretch it out. It does not hurt the overall story which is a plus.
