Berserker #4 just as gory as the others

If you're worried that Jeremy Haun is going to make Berserker #4 any less gory and visceral then your fears are unfounded. But there's nothing like a little friendly competition among artists as to who can out-gore the other. Berserker #4 will feature covers by both Haun and Dale Keown and both really escalate the violence. Keown did a variant cover for Berserker #3 where Aaron snarls through his opponent's blood and guts as he tears him in half, and for this issue it looks like he's going a step further. “In addition to producing a compelling story, both Jeremy Haun and Dale Keown seem to be engaged in a good natured competition to see who can produce the grittiest cover image” said Top Cow Publisher, Filip Sablik. Berserker #3 will arrive in stores on November 25th for $2.99. Full press release after the jump. JEREMY HAUN KEEPS TOP COW’S NEWEST SERIES STAINED IN BLOOD BERSERKER #4 BRINGS MORE BONE CRUSHING LOS ANGELES, Calif., November 23, 2009 – Top Cow Productions, Inc. proudly announced today the November 2009 release of Berserker #4. Berserker is the first comic book series Top Cow has released in conjunction with DiVide Pictures, the production company founded by Milo Ventimiglia of Television’s Heroes fame and Russ Cundiff. Written and created by screenwriter Rick Loverd (Boston Public, Friday Night Lights) with art by Jeremy Haun (Battle for the Cowl: Arkham, Chuck), Berserker #4 explores what happens when the Berserkers led by Midgard and Asgaard hunt down and push Farris and Aaron over the edge. As both rival groups compete to recruit these powerful young Berserkers to their respective causes, one wonders if there can truly be a winner. Will there be any hope for a return to humanity for Farris and Aaron after they awake from their frenzied rage? The graphic cover images for Berserker #4 by series artist Haun and series cover artist Dale Keown intensifies the violence depicted on previous published issue., Previous covers such as Dale Keown’s cover to Berserker #3, where series character Aaron snarls through his opponent’s blood and intestines as he tears him in half have certainly pushed the envelope, but the new images take things even further. “Top Cow is thrilled to collaborate with DiVide Pictures for the Berserker series,” said Top Cow Publisher, Filip Sablik. “In addition to producing a compelling story, both Jeremy Haun and Dale Keown seem to be engaged in a good natured competition to see who can produce the grittiest cover image.” Berserker #3 will arrive in stores on November 25th and features covers by Dale Keown and Jeremy Haun. Berserker #4 is priced at $2.99 as part of Top Cow Productions ongoing promotion to maintain the low cover price of $2.99 in 2009 for all their regular issues.
