THE PUNISHER #8
NATHAN EDMONDSON & KEVIN MAURER (W)
CARMEN CARNERO (A)
Cover by MITCH GERADS


NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR KEVIN MAURER (NO EASY DAY) JOINS NATHAN EDMONDSON FOR THE CONCLUSION OF THEIR HARD-HITTING TALE OF JUNGLE WARFARE!


• A wounded Frank Castle and a Special Forces medic hazard dangerous terrain and merciless mercenaries to make their escape
• Crossbones and his crew won’t stop until the Punisher is in their custody.
• It’s a race for survival not to be missed as Frank’s adventure south of the border comes to its blood-soaked end!

Matt: But I just don’t get it, Frank. You didn’t kill Leland Owlsley. So help me understand what led to your confession.
Frank: I wanted him dead. You’re wasting your time going down that road.
Matt: You’re blocking me out, Frank. Tell me more. I need something stronger to convince the jury you’re not guilty.
Frank: Guilty, not guilty, whatever — I’m a marked man. The Kingpin’s got plenty of guys in here, too, you know. I wish you could see what’s right in front of your eyes. This ain’t gonna end well.

Powerless #2

Matt Cherniss, Peter Johnson + Michael Gaydos

Powerless is an AU mini-series which has a self explanatory premise. The obvious question to raise is: why feature Frank Castle, of all characters, when the very concept is seeing Marvel heroes without their superpowers? Frank has no powers to be taken from him, and as such, shouldn’t he remain the same?

It’s something simpler: in this story, Frank is lacking his cold lethality and the determination that so defines him. Instead, he succumbs to his despair. As a result, he is powerless.

You kids like memes, right.

Punisher MAX (volume two): Jason Aaron + Steve Dillon

Can’t die. Busy schedule.

The Punisher #8

Rick Remender + Tan Eng Huat

Frank’s tattoo in Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher.

Semper Fidelis: “Always Faithful” | “Always Loyal.” Motto of the US Marine Corps.

Rick Remender, on being asked what it felt to watch Matt Fraction “ruin the Punisher character with bad writing and sub-plots.”

From The Punisher #2 letter section.

Shoot. I dare you.

The Punisher #4

Nathan Edmondson + Mitch Gerads

Punisher #4 (preview): Nathan Edmondson + Mitch Gerads

Punisher MAX #53 (volume one): Garth Ennis + Goran Parlov

If it isn’t a sly callback, it’s quite a coincidence. It was very effective in Ennis’ tale as well.

Sure.

Punisher MAX (volume one) 23 + 39

Garth Ennis + Leandro Fernandez

When Cap speaks to him as a fellow service-person, when Captain America addresses him as a Marine?

Frank Castle will stand at attention.

Punisher War Zone #5

Greg Rucka + Carmine Di Giandomenico
