Punisher War Journal (2nd Series)

    (Marvel, 2006-Present)

Frank Castle’s war on criminals becomes more difficult every day. The Marvel Universe “Civil War”—a result of the divisive Super Heroes Registration Act—has sent many heroes underground, giving the villains an advantage. Worse still, some former criminals have been given the authority to capture other criminals (and former heroes) themselves.

Fortunately for the Punisher, while his job may be larger than ever, his perspective hasn’t changed. Criminals are criminals, even if they carry a badge. The world may have gone crazy, but the Punisher is the sanest guy in town. Just ask him.

This title springs out of Civil War with dark humor and the suggestion that when heroes are fighting each other and villains are working for the government, the Punisher’s take-no-prisoners approach just might make the most sense. Matt Fraction’s sharp writing and Ariel Olivetti’s stylish art make for an entertaining ride.
