Ron Garney To Illustrate Keanu Reeves’ ‘BRZRKR’ From BOOM! Studios

by James Ferguson

Publisher BOOM! Studios has announced that Ron Garney will be the new series artist for BRZRKR from Keanu Reeves and co-writer Matt Kindt. He’s also joined by colorist Bill Crabtree and letterer Clem Robins. Garney is taking over for Alessandro Vitti, the originally announced series artist, although no reason was provided for the change. It’s also not clear when Garney will take over as the first issue of BRZRKR, presumably with Vitti’s artwork is scheduled to debut in October.

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 wandering the world for 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.
“I’m thrilled to have been asked to join Keanu, and Matt, Bill, Clem, and the whole team on BRZRKR,” said Ron Garney. “I’ve started collaborating with them and am really digging diving into this. In my over thirty year career I’ve worked on so many projects, and this feels like a fresh, new, unique, and cool character in an action-packed world that is like something we’ve never experienced before. It’s adventurous, and exploring the fascinating conflict behind the mysterious hero B. is a trip I’m excited to be on.”

“Ron Garney has been delivering spectacular work on Marvel’s top characters for years and we’re thrilled to have him join BRZRKR as series artist,” said Matt Gagnon, Editor-in-Chief of BOOM! Studios. “Ron and Keanu’s influences in comics, and vision for the series, couldn’t be more in line. Ron Garney is a perfect match to bring the visceral world of BRZRKR to life.”
BRZRKR #1 features a main cover by Rafael Grampa and a variant cover by Mark Brooks. It’s set for release on October 7th, 2020.
