Half a year ago, a civilian named Jones lost his entire family at the hands of a bastard frost giant named Kasyckla. The Punisher swore vengeance, put on a viking helmet, hooked his trusty battle van to one of Thor's goats and declared war on all the otherworldly monsters who benefited from the Earth's misery… Continue reading Review: Punisher: Kill Krew #5 by Gerry Duggan & Juan Ferreyra

Review: Punisher: Soviet #1 (2019) by Garth Ennis

While veteran Punisher writer Garth Ennis has kept in touch with Frank Castle as a man and a United States Marine in the past decade through 2012's Fury MAX: My War Gone By and 2017's Punisher: The Platoon, Punisher: Soviet marks the first time that Ennis has stepped back into the world of Frank Castle AS… Continue reading Review: Punisher: Soviet #1 (2019) by Garth Ennis

Review: Punisher: Kill Krew #4 by Gerry Duggan

Before making this review, I want to apologize to all the fans for the wait. As you all may know, I've been a little busy with organizing The Punisher Day (2019.10.30). Hopefully, next year will bring even more engagement and community support for Frank. Without further ado, let's jump back into the penultimate issue of this… Continue reading Review: Punisher: Kill Krew #4 by Gerry Duggan

Review: The Punisher #16 (2019) by Matthew Rosenberg

The end of a cycle has arrived. A bittersweet ending to the best mainstream Punisher run since Greg Rucka's and a great series. For over two years and TWENTY SEVEN issues, Frank Castle braved the fallout of an unthinkable and absolutely horrendous decision on the part of Marvel Comics creative and editorial teams to allow The… Continue reading Review: The Punisher #16 (2019) by Matthew Rosenberg

Review: The Punisher Annual (2019) by Karla Pacheco

Written in reference to Acts of Vengeance (the late 1989/1990 crossover event pitting heroes against villains outside their rogue's gallery), this year's The Punisher annual sent odd duo Frank Castle and J. Jonah Jameson to space to fight evil Russian astronauts and the Brood Queen. With a writer familiar with all manner of sci-fi/space oddities in… Continue reading Review: The Punisher Annual (2019) by Karla Pacheco

Review: The Punisher: Kill Krew #1 (of 5) (2019) by Gerry Duggan

Frank Castle had an unusually prominent presence in the War of the Realms. He helped Thor, Wolverine, Blade and Lady Freyja among others stop Earth's invasion from Malekith's forces and for three issues, Gerry Duggan (Infinity Wars, Deadpool) gave him his own "fun" solo adventure where he helped a few patients and medical staff escape to safety with… Continue reading Review: The Punisher: Kill Krew #1 (of 5) (2019) by Gerry Duggan
