BRZRKR get its first collected volume this September!

Third Eye Faithful it feels like only yesterday that we were picking our jaws up off the ground when we found out that the Keanu Reeves was putting pen to paper for a comic book! Realistically, a few months have passed by and now we’re gearing up for the first collected volume of BRZRKR. Wrapping together the first five issues of the hit series, BRZRKR Vol 1 releases at the end of September!

Now, this may have been Reeves’ first foray into the comic book writing world, and we have to say – he’s done a pretty darn awesome job. With co-writer Matt Kindt at his side, we’ve been hooked since issue #1. With the first handfuls of issues still a bit of a challenge to snag, having the first volume is a great way to jump on board with a killer series.

So, what’s the big scoop on BRZRKR?

A WAR WITH NO END, A MAN WITH NO LIMITS.

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 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.

Keanu Reeves makes his comic book writing debut alongside New York Times bestselling co-writer Matt Kindt (Folklords, Grass Kings) and acclaimed artist Ron Garney (Juggernaut) in a brutally violent new series about one immortal warrior’s fight through the ages.

ENIAC #1 (Bad Idea Comics)

It’s down to two covert operatives to save the 21st century from the 20th century’s greatest secret: ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer) –a government-sanctioned artificial intelligence that secretly defied its creators to end World War II at Nagasaki, but created a far more powerful threat in the aftermath.

Now, after decades in the shadows, ENIAC is about to execute its endgame with a countdown that could erase mankind once and for all.

Hero Trade: Passive Aggressive (Bad Idea Comics)

Midnight in Los Angeles, and the brutal vigilante known as The Watch metes out justice, cleaning the street of lawbreaking scum. As fist meets face, The Watch’s phone rings: it’s Fred from Capitol A-1 Bank. The Watch has been hacked — actually, it’s his civilian identity — but Fred sure as shit doesn’t know who he’s talking to — he’s just calling the high-end clients to let them know their bank account’s been drained.“Don’t worry,” Fred says. “We’re insured. It’ll be fine.”

“No it won’t,” The Watch replies.

The Watch is headed to Russia — with $8.8 billion reasons to kill every last member of the Russian hacking farm —and justice will be measured in broken bones and gallons of blood.

New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT) and legendary illustrator David Lapham (Stray Bullets) give bone-shredding vengeance a name this August as another piece is placed on the HERO TRADE board in a tale guaranteed to shock and provoke.

Folklords

Award-nominated writer Matt Kindt (Grass Kings, Black Badge) teams with acclaimed artist Matt Smith (Barbarian Lord, Hellboy & The BPRD) for an adventure that blurs the line between fantasy and reality. In a world of magic and monsters, Ansel is an outsider haunted by visions of well-pressed suits and modern technology.

When it comes time for him to declare his Quest, Ansel decides to seek out the mysterious Folklords, hoping they can explain his visions…but looking for the Folklords is strictly forbidden, punishable by death. How much is Ansel willing to risk to find out about the world he has never truly belonged in?
