Top Cow Comics

Hypothetical: If you were to rip someone's limbs off, would it leave holes? Not really, right? There might be a shallow depression rapidly filling with blood as shock sets in, but not holes. And certainly not holes you could reach inside of and grab a person's organs through.
That's the kind of question this book brings to mind, as ancient berserker Farris Jorn rips people into entrails and kiffle like Marvel Comics' Ares and Wolverine combined. He looks and seems like a nice, normal guy--until someone irritates him. Then he rips them in two pieces and throws each piece of person through another person. When his undead-looking buddy makes a joke at his expense he kicks the door of the car out and throws the car through a water tower--that's restrained for a Berserker.
The artwork here is ok, There's not a lot of background in whatever burning land most of this takes place in, but the figures are detailed and well-crafted. One thing I was especially grateful for was that this book has virtually no sound effects--when Farris squeezes somebody's head off or rips them in half it makes no visible sound at all. (Sometimes this is actually confusing, as it's like a dude's head just explodes or something--but after SFIIT, I am not complaining.)
The story? There may be a complicated back-story set up in the previous 3 issues, but the recap here is brief and terse: To paraphrase, Farris is an ancient dude with rage issues--he's looking for his ex-girlfriend and he's going to rip her kidnappers into tiny pieces. And that's exactly what happens. The Berserker tears people up until he finds Eva in the weird burning land where she's being held captive by some sort of Norse theology-themed corporate dude who, according to the back-matter, made his money early in life in the aluminum trade--then he gives her a look like she's next.
