    If you are a fan of Garth Ennis’s Crossed or Warren Ellis’s Black Summer and No Hero type of books then this will be a great read. If you are somebody just looking to try something new and get outside of your comfort zone I would say give Berserker a chance, just be prepared to have your arms ripped off and beaten over the head with them.

    "Berserker" still hasn't shown all that it can do, but the hook here is strong, and the juxtaposition between former soldier Farris and high school student Aaron could lead to some interesting situations should they meet. Hopefully, next issue will begin fleshing out these characters a bit more now that the groundwork has been laid. Read Full Review

    A lack of an coherent and visible antagonist threat coupled with a surplus of pitiful protagonists who cant control their murderous, strength increasing rages, kill innocent people by physically rending them into human confetti, and who are in turn hunted by a secret, ominous society with unknown intentions are all storytelling missteps that make reading Berserker #1 a befuddling and boring experience. Flawed in execution and premise, Berserker #1 is an unready concept that should have stayed in the brainstorming oven for a lot, lot longer. Read Full Review
