  1. This book started slow but it’s gaining momentum and I loved it so far. The silent ghost-like Punisher with the blurring spray-painted skull sign is a great take on the character. I hope Cecchetto will be back soon and that he and Rucka will stick around at least for a couple of years.

  2. i’ve heard that they are in it for the long haul with only a few scheduled breaks.
    i hope that is still the case as well

  3. Oh my god…Matthew Southworth is doing part of this issue?!?! I loved loved LOVED his work on Stumptown. Hopefully he can recreate that magic with Rucka again for thiss issue!

  4. THIS was amazing!

  5. Rucka and the artists are really doing something special with this book. I wish these guys were the regulars, amazing last page

  6. I’m switching to trade on this. I think it might read better all in one chunk.

    • I thought this one was an example of a comic that really works as a single issue. Just the way they build up to that last page, lots of skill and subtlety went into this one

      The ‘does it read better in issues or trade’ really is the great question of our time though.

    • Too many people waiting for trades and it might fall into danger zone. #4 sold 25,847 copies.

  7. great issue. love the story. i like cecchetto’s art better, but this was a pretty good fill-in.
    its strange, i felt a little bad for the dogs at first cuz i thought frank killed them. but, for some reason, im totally ok with him killing as many people as he wants.

  8. Please keep Matthew Southworth on art duties for this book FOREVER. Superb stuff!

  9. please bring cecchetto back, it WAS perfect. fuckn’ fantastic

  10. Storm Shadow Punisher was awesome!
