As the best-selling comic of the 2020s with 600000 records sold before its debut on Jan. On March 23rd, he’s sure to say that BRZRKR # 1 by Keanu Reeves and co-writer Matt Kindt is not only eagerly anticipated with artwork by Ron Garnery, but also surrounded by a lot of hype that is understandable that Reeves is a popular Hollywood star , known for his action films, including franchises John Wick and Matrix, and the premise is intriguing – a half-mortal, half-divine killing machine collaborates with the US. Government in Exchange for What He Wants Most: The Truth How To End His Existence After Centuries of Slaughter and Bloodshed Despite the A-list names attached and that stellar premise, BRZRKR # 1 falls short of the hype the debut features just enough hooks as readers already know, and too much of what reads like another hard-to-kill, inhuman cartoon character

If asked to summarize BRZRKR # 1 with one impression it would be this: Wolverine with some Hollywood glamor on the first few pages alone, there are many similarities between Berserker (as he is called in the call) and Marvel’s claw-popping mutant – a slightly shaggy and downtrodden look, a general feeling of being an outsider – and those similarities only grow as the problem unfolds, it quickly becomes apparent that Berserker is a near-unstoppable killing machine, page after page the output is filled with the character who is kills everything in its path and sometimes in extremely creative ways.It’s certainly aggressive and violent, but also dispassionate – which is possibly the main reason Berserker differs from Wolverine as a killing machine

What is interesting, however, is that despite the pages about pages of violence, BRZRKR # 1 isn’t exactly full of blood. Yes, this isn’t a comic strip for kids in any way, shape, or shape, and there are some very disturbing panels, but Garney does solid work in outfitting his artwork with the same detached air readers that Berserker gets people die terribly, but there’s a hollowness that makes it easier to read while driving home how monstrous the man who kills can be

It’s also noteworthy how sparse dialogue and words are in this issue. Most of the “story” takes place in the artwork with a disembodied narrative spread out in the form of a conversation between Berserker and someone else (you have to have the Read issue to find out who) It serves primarily as a voice-over within a montage of violence and does not offer readers much interest.If you have an idea what the series should be about, then you already know everything the narrative in BRZRKR # 1 tells you The result is something that may feel like a summary to those unfamiliar with the premise

The bottom line is: BRZRKR # 1 is a lot of flash and hype that reads like a recap of the sales pitch that ended with the slightest hook to lure readers into the next issue.It’s a bloody and violent one Debut, which, despite its general lack of subtlety, somehow manages to be held back, the art tells more of the story than writing, and it remains to be seen whether readers join in for a wild, action-packed ride or if this is just a clawless Wolverine – Wannabe’s BRZRKR # 1 is fun read, but it’ll take a lot more than the Keanu Reeves to make the ongoing series worth it
