    BRZRKR #3 is once again the most fun, bloody mess I've had in a long time. I am not totally sure if they are taking themselves seriously or making fun of themselves here. You know what? I don't care. I just love it. People wanted to hate this series before it came out, but that was a mistake. Matt Kindt is involved and that is, simply put, always good. He knows how to tell a hell of a twisted story. I can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jun 16, 2021

    BRZRKR #3 does a lot with only a little bit. Kindt, Reeves, and Garney deliver a ton of brutal action yet also fill the book with pathos to get readers into Bs head when he was young and questioning his existence. In fact, this issue makes his life even sadder in retrospect, as hes been doing the same thing for millennia. BRZRKR #3 is a great comic, both overt and subtle, and one fantastic read.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jun 16, 2021

    This is an exciting and gory issue filled with detailed drawings and deep tones. The result is captivating. Each panel adds significant depth to the story. And several made me audibly gasp. The artwork in this edition is very well done and transportive. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 16, 2021

    BRZRKR #3 is an impressive issue. It gives us a lot of action and pure destruction. But, it also focuses in on the impact of that all on a person. We get to see the weariness build. We get to see him question his role. It's clear this is a series that's about a soldier who no longer wants to fight but all he knows how to do is that. What started as a generic action story has developed into something far deeper. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - ozwoods Jun 16, 2021

    BRZRKR #3 explores more of B's character in the past and shows what it could mean for his time in the present. The artwork from Ron Garney and Bill Crabtree is great as they continue to show more of the series' bloody action. The story with B is not exactly new but it's well-written and executed well with the art in the comic. It's an enjoyable continuation of the previous issue and tugs at some of the bigger questions surrounding B, while setting up later issues. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Jun 15, 2021

    This is the kind of comic, with a name as big as Keanu Reeves, that has the potential to draw non comic readers in. And with the intriguing story and excellent art has the kind of pulling power to not only keep these non comic book readers, but also to open their eyes to other comics. Keanu Reeves and Matt Kindt have crafted an excellent story here, where readers can’t help but sympathise for the Berserker, while worrying what is in store for his future. The art is fantastic throughout, there’s plenty to recommend about this comic. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jun 17, 2021

    BRZRKR #3 digs deeper into its protagonist's psyche with an issue that's light on plot but heavy on action. Hopefully, the next issue will push the story forward and introduce a new challenge for B, or at the very least introduce friction between him and his handlers. Read Full Review

    GWW - Joseph Gilmore Jun 16, 2021

    The pieces are all there for a fantastic story. However, BRZRKR #4 must deliver on moving the story forward, rather than spending more time languishing in the past. Read Full Review

    To put it bluntly, the Wolverine-adjacent of it all is getting old, even as the story starts to heat up. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 21, 2021

    A well-drawn issue, but the focus on B's battle prowess also makes it feels light on narrative content, as much of the issues is battle sequences. Garney's art is amazing throughout. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Calum Petrie Jun 19, 2021

    BRZRKR appears to be leading the reader somewhere interesting, and I am just going to wait patiently and see where this journey of bloody, guts and sad Keanu memes takes us from here. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Daniel Boyd Jun 15, 2021

    Cool page layout, just a shame that cavemen conquering murder sprees weren't what we signed up for.Overall, this may not be the worst issue in the series so far, but as it follows the first two, it will likely leave you frustrated and fatigued by the end of it. This series really has to pick up with its next entry, otherwise I feel that a good amount of people who were initially on-board with it could give up on the series, myself included.
