    The continuity is the same, the character progression is the same but the packaging is brand new. And I couldn’t be happier. Viva la Franken-Castle! Read Full Review

    Anyway, this is the start of the new arc, and with it, they renamed the old Punisher book Franken-castle just to let you know that theres a bigger story at work - and I can be more excited. It should be an awesome ride. Read Full Review

    I hope enough time has passed that the shock has worn off and readers ambivalent on the FrankenCastle concept have elected to give the series a shot. It's a strange and unique take on the character, one that is sorely needed after so many years of gritty crime adventures. Whether you start with this issue or check out the Marvel Must Have reprint also on the stands this week, give FrankenCastle a fair shot. You might just fall in love with this poor monster of a man all over again. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Jun 4, 2010

    I've heard that some Punisher fans don't appreciate Rick Remender's re-imagining. To these folk, I say too bad. I love Franken-Castle. There are as Remender stated plenty of other Punisher titles where the NRA's poster boy is hale, hearty, and traditionally one dimensional. I don't have that luxury. DC will not publish a title where Batgirl is fully mobile in the present, and that's why I am boycotting all of their comics. Count yourselves lucky Punisher fans and suck it up. Marvel at least gives you a choice. My choice is Franken-Castle. Read Full Review

    I really wish this whole Franken-Castle nonsense would end as soon as possible, so we can get back to Punisher as he ought to be. Remender and Boschi have the goods, but I think their talents would shine a lot more in this title if it went back to the War Journal roots and became "distinctly Punisher," once again.
