BRZRKR (BERZERKER) #1 (OF 12) 5TH PTG GARNEY (MR)
(W) Keanu Reeves, Matt Kindt (A/CA) Ron Garney
Discover the next blockbuster action franchise from the iconic KEANU REEVES in his Must Read comic book writing debut alongside New York Times best-selling co-writer Matt Kindt (Folklords, Bang!) and acclaimed artist Alessandro Vitti (Marvel's Secret Warriors) in a brutally violent new series about one immortal warrior's fight through the ages. The man known only as Berzerker 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, Berzerker 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, Berzerker will be granted the one thing he desires – the truth about his endless blood-soaked existence… and how to end it. NOTE: This is for Mature Readers In Shops: Jul 14, 2021 Final Orders Due: Jun 21, 2021 SRP: $4.99

What if Magical Girls aren't Earth's champions after all? The world's most beloved heroes Aoe, Thel, and Gen, better known as the Lovely Trio, first burst onto the scene five years ago when they saved Earth from a surprise space monster attack! Since then, everyone–including Gigi, whose brother died as a bystander in a Lovely Trio battle– has idolized them as superheroic pop icons. But when Gigi witnesses the Lovely Trio battling a monster firsthand, she sees something that causes her to question everything she thought she ever knew about her heroes! "The amazing support of SAVE YOURSELF! #1 is making us all feel like superhero pop icons," said Filip Sablik, President, Publishing & Sales, BOOM! Studios. "Bones, Kelly, Nichole, and Jim have turned the idea of Magical Girls upside-down in SAVE YOURSELF! and we can't wait to share it with even more readers!"
