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),┬áthis 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

The Punisher Makes It Clear That He’s No Role Model For Law Enforcement

In Punisher #13, Matthew Rosenberg took a surprising opportunity to address the controversy behind the usage of the Punisher skull by law enforcement. In the comic, two officers investigating a string of violent robberies mistakenly come across The Punisher as a suspect. After realizing who they've stopped, the officers stop to snap a picture with… Continue reading The Punisher Makes It Clear That He’s No Role Model For Law Enforcement

Continuing immediately after his organized jailbreak from and destruction of Bagalia, the story begins with Frank crash-landed in cartel tropical island territory and about to be executed by drug overdose.

Review: The Punisher #9 (2018) by Matthew Rosenberg

The Punisher has been in prison many times, but he's never orchestrated a prison break like this.

Review: The Punisher #8 (2018) by Matthew Rosenberg

Another good Punisher comic with barely his presence, but he is the mastermind of a very credible "Prison Break". Rosenberg presented us with a very smart and probably the most credible way to escape prison from the entire Punisher history of the last 45 years. The Punisher has been in prison many times, especially in… Continue reading Review: The Punisher #8 (2018) by Matthew Rosenberg

Review: The Punisher #7 (2018) by Matthew Rosenberg

Matthew Rosenberg doesn't seem to give us any rest in terms of the twists and turns in this issue. There's a major one establishing a bridge to the 30 year old "Jigsaw Puzzle" arc written by Mike Baron. This issue is probably the most philosophical from the current run. Sure, we get all kinds of… Continue reading Review: The Punisher #7 (2018) by Matthew Rosenberg
