The upcoming BRZRKR #1 is on its way to leaving a huge mark on the comic book industry. Previously kickstarted ahead of its BOOM! Studios publication, the new series hails from Hollywood A-lister Keanu Reeves and co-writer Matt Kindt with artwork by Ron Garney, and is about to be the highest selling comic in years. Garney took to Facebook to reveal that sales on the first issue have seemingly set a record. He writes: "Brzrkr #1 has surpassed over 600,000 copies— thank you to everyone for the amazing enthusiasm and support for this project on behalf of myself, Keanu, Matt K, Ross, Eric, Bill, Filip, Stephen, Matt G and all of the stellar people at Boom!"
With BRZRKR #1 sitting at over 600k copies sold already, it's no doubt the #1 selling book of the 2020s, seemingly surpassing Dark Nights: Death Metal #1 and becoming the highest selling comic since Star Wars #1 in 2015 which sold over one million copies. BRZRKR #1 also marks the highest selling Boom! Studios comic since the Big Trouble in Little China/Escape From New York #1 crossover which nabbed 421k copies when it debuted in October of 2016.
The very successful Kickstarter for BRZRKR wasn't to just get the series off the ground but done in part in the hopes of helping to fund an elaborate trade paperback collection. In fact, only collected editions were available through the crowdfunding effort, the cheapest of which was a softcover offering of all three trades for $50.
