Prelude to PAYBACK! Punisher: REBORN! In the past few months, Frank Castle has had his family desecrated by the Hood, been killed by Daken, been slashed to ribbons by The Hand, been hunted by Microchip’s Deadly Dozen, and had a bounty placed on his head by Jigsaw. But now, The Punisher has made a list of his own. God help you if your name is on it. It’s time for the rise of Frank Castle. It’s time for PAYBACK.

  1. I don’t understand the title change and again with the reborn? There are more verbs out there!

  2. They make it sound like Frank will be relatively back to normal soon with the whole "Prelude to Punisher: Reborn", so I don’t know why they changed the title to Franken-castle…if they are just going to have to change it back

  3. I am going to go with publicity stunt? Will it draw in more people than it annoys? I don’t know.

  4. Remender has said that Franken-Castle is going to be the new status quo. I really dig it, personally.

  5. @ato220- not to be a dick, but it’s an adjective

  6. not that I don’t agree with the sentiment.

  7. I’m kind of bummed that I dropped off of this after the first issue. I’m definitely going to pick up the trade.

  8. I love this title ever since he threw man-thing at the helicopter…. nuff said

    My favorite part of the last arc was Frank watching tv with the little Moloid with the lame arm. It was a nice scene of monsters eating snacks, which always works, like Gene Hackman’s bit in Young Frankenstein.

  10. I liked the issue where we were given Hellsgaard’s backstory (issue 14).  The painted pages were beautiful…felt like I was reading an old time children’s fairy tale.

  11. I want this comic to stay all Frankenstein and monster-y for a long time. It’s been really really fun.

  12. I miss tony moore…

  13. This was great. As long as Remender is writing it I will keep reading it. Damn this was good.

  14. "Your life is forfeit, great western satan!"  This is some damn fun writing.  I love everything about this book except the way Frank looks.  But even there I’m coming around.  

  15. This is the best Boschi art I’ve ever seen. Before his stuff looked a little rushed but here it seemed like he maybe had a little more time to
    put it together.

  16. It’s hard to follow Tony Moore, but this guy is pretty darn good.
