Milo Ventimiglia launches his new comic book series Berserker

Top Cow Productions, Inc. proudly announces the release of Berserker #1, a comic book published in conjunction with Milo Ventimiglia's production company, DiVide Pictures.   

The brutal new series, which debuted Wednesday June 24, offers a blend of Norse mythology with contemporary characters. The story focuses on an American war veteran and a high school athlete coming to grip with the animalistic and uncontrollable rage living inside them. 

"Berserker is a feel good kill.  This is the book I wish I read as a kid," explains Venitmiglia.

"We are incredibly excited by the way Berserker has come together. On every level, from the concept to Rick's writing to Jeremy's art to Dave McCaig's colors to the involvement from Milo and Russ at DiVide, this book is firing on all cylinders," added Filip Sablik, Top Cow Publisher.

Fans received a glimpse of the new series in a zero issue that debuted at the 2009 New York Comic-Con.  Berserker #0 has been extensively reviewed by various review websites, creating a media buzz after Ventimiglia discussed the comic in an interview aired on a February episode of the TODAY Show.
