This authorized account of her life by two esteemed Danish scientists, Frances Andreasen Østerfelt and Anja Cetti Andersen, walks us through the tumultuous times of living under Czarist rule in 1870s Poland, Marie’s first love, the grit and determination to do well at the Sorbonne, her marriage, and her scientific achievements.

I am tied at the hip to Erica Slaughter’s journey. I care so much about this character, as much as I do about Ripley from the Alien franchise, or Lisbeth Salander from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series. Entering into this story arc, we know how the events will turn out, but not why, and not to what extent it reveals to us huge chunks of this mythology and the other characters.
With issue #5, the story opens up and the Berzerker deepens. BRZRKR has been following a path. A scientist (trying to help the Berkzerker in exchange for his help) has been cutting into who our hero is through his past and present in an attempt to help him become a mortal.

Two big questions exist at the center of this story: What makes us who we are, and how do we stop being that person?
