Who doesn’t know Keanu Reeves? An A-list actor, a well-known musician, even a film producer, and now, a comic book writer. Yes, Keanu Reeves has started a new pursuit beyond his niche and has joined forces with Matt Kindt, New York Times graphic novelist. “BRZRKR” (read as “Berzerker”) is bound to hit the market with its first issue on October 7, distributed by Boom! Studios.

The 12-issue limited series, illustrated by Alessandro Vitti, features Berzerker, a warrior (who resembles Reeves himself) who has been wandering the world for hundreds of years. Berzerker works for the US government in present times, taking violent and dangerous jobs in exchange for answers about his immortal existence. The official synopsis reads: “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.”

BRZRKR’s summary itself serves as a warning, however. Reeves and Kindt share the same intensity of the comic’s violence, and the series may not be for the faint of heart. BRZRKR is described as a mixture of various fictional elements including action, violence, conspiracies, and “a heartbreaking discovery.” Vitti expresses his enjoyment in illustrating the fight scenes in the comic: They “really gave me sense that I was in a Hollywood movie set.”

Reeves, 55, says that he started getting drawn into comic books when he was about 10 years old, but had never shown interest in writing or drawing one, not until this year. He did, however, dream of playing as Wolverine. So, what about BRZRKR? Reeves’ answer is “I’d love to play Berzerker!”
