PORTLAND, Ore. 09/14/2023 — Up-and-coming creative dynamo Andrew Krahnke (Outrunners, Tartarus) will kick off an all-new three issue miniseries titled, Bloodrik. This action-packed story will launch in December from Image Comics.
Bloodrik is angry, confused and starving. After finding nothing but failure in his usual hunting grounds he stomps his way into unfamiliar woods in an attempt to feed his stomach and heal his wounded ego. What he finds will lead him on a journey of madness, violence, fire and BLOOD!
“I came up with the rough idea for this comic in about ten minutes, after I sketched Bloodrik for the first time. I knew I wanted it to be about a hulking woodsman making his way across a brutal landscape looking for food. Seemed like a simple enough idea. It would be another ten years before I sat down to finally start drawing it,” said Krahnke. “During those ten years of writing, rewriting, and re-rewriting, Bloodrik evolved from that simple idea into a story about how we see ourselves and the trouble we can get into when we let the idea of who we think we are dictate how we see the world. This book is the result of a lot of time, effort, and energy and I’m extremely proud of the end result. I think anyone who gives it a chance will find something to enjoy. At the very least it makes a great visual companion to whatever viking metal playlist you prefer.”
Bloodrik #1 (Lunar Code 1023IM255) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, December 6.
Bloodrik #1 will also be available across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
