Don’t Miss: Untold Tales of Punisher MAX #3 with Megan Abbott

Show Notes

Running Time: 00:18:28

The Marvel MAX iteration of Frank Castle may have met his maker earlier this year, but a guy like that is bound to leave behind a lockbox or two, right? This week faithful readers inherit a lost case file from our dearly departed Punisher. Untold Tales of Punisher MAX #3 is a one-and-done story from crime writer Megan Abbott and artist Matteo Baffagni. Paul talks to the author about making the jump to comics and coaxing Frank Castle’s long shadow to the tranquil suburbs. What film noir masterworks inspired Abbott’s vision, and what other seedy comic locales would she like to visit in the future? All this, plus Abbott’s woefully unpublished debut for the defunct Vertigo Crime line and the prospect of Punisher vs….high school cheerleaders?

And don’t miss Megan Abbott’s new prose novel Dare Me, in stores now.
