For Frank Castle, death comes easy. Life is where things gets complicated. Fully loaded with Eisner Award-winning writer Greg Rucka (Batwoman, Queen and Country, WOLVERINE) and neo-superstar artist Marco Checchetto (THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, DAREDEVIL), the biggest gun of all is back with blood on his hands and vengeance in his eyes to serve his own brand of justice with everything’s he’s got – but can he survive the darkness stored in his own arsenal?

Plus: a violent look at how the Punisher deals with a world where every criminal is now a super hero. (Here’s a hint: He doesn’t deal with it pleasantly.)

Collects The Punisher (2011) #1-5, Spider-Island: I Love New York City.

  1. Been trade-waiting this series, I have every reason to believe that it will read best all together.
    Can’t wait to dive in!

  2. I was straddling the line about whether to get this or not. I love a lot of Greg Rucka’s work, but this title didn’t get the amazing talk that books like Batman and Daredevil have received. When I heard that a title I love (Daredevil) was going to crossover with this one, an issue of said title would be reprinted in the second Punisher trade, and that Rucka and Mark Waid were planning to work the titles together again…I was nudged across the line. And I probably won’t say a con word about it.
