Comic Review: The Punisher Volume 1

The Punisher Volume 1

The Punisher Volume 1

This is the last solo series of the Punisher and in it something quite unexpected happens–he finds a partner. This Marvel series is written by Greg Rucka (Queen & Country, Wonder Woman) and illustrated by Marco Checchetto (Daredevil, Spider-Man).

A horribly tragic event takes place during a day that should be filled with blessings. A wedding is interupted by gun fire killing 30 of 31 people including the groom. The only survivor is U.S. Marine Sergeant Rachel Cole-Alves and she will not sit idly by. Soon her hunt for the killers of her husband and friends will cross paths with the Punisher.

A series that took a couple of issues before I really got behind it. After I did I began to appreciate what they were doing. A deep story line with many intersecting plots. Artwork that seems very real and expressive of emotions. Being that this was the last series, for now, we are very fortunate indeed.

The Punisher Welcome Back Frank

The Punisher Welcome Back Frank

The Punisher 2004 movie was based around this comic and of course it’s hard to capture everything from the book. Especially with Garth Ennis (Preacher, The Boys) writing and Steve Dillon(Thunderbolts, Wolverine:Origins) doing the illustrations for this Marvel title.

The punisher has been gone from New York for quite a while and it’s time to let the people know he’s back in town. A good place to start is taking out the criminal family of Ma Gnucci. Frank has more than enough to contend with the police, daredevil and the Russian on his case. To top it off a couple people are copying The Punisher and killing in the name of justice. It will only be awhile before everything starts to close in on The Punisher.

So many different things going on in this story. The duo of Ennis and Dillon help showcase each others talents once again. It really is quite a hefty read but well worth it. If you haven’t read any Punisher before this is a good jumping on point for new readers.

The Punisher Enter The War Zone

With the avengers after The Punisher, is this one enemy that he can’t defeat. This Marvel series written by Greg Rucka (Queen & Country, Detective Comics) and illustrated by Carmine Di Giandomenico (Journey Into Mystery, Iron Man 2.0) is the end of the most recent Punisher run.

The Punisher’s recent accomplice is on trial for the killing of a police officer. With the public opinion of the Punisher at an all time low, people are looking for justice.  Unfortunately the Avengers agree and they’re looking to lock him up. With such powerful adversaries after the Punisher and the fact that he won’t kill them, can he survive. Or is this finally the end of the Punisher’s long career.

Great ending to the series, honestly didn’t see the whole Avengers thing coming. Each issue is the Punisher facing off against an individual member of the team leading up to a final battle. There is no Punisher title currently running so if you are looking for more of him check out the Thunderbolts series.
