    Yes, there will be more comics after this one. There are probably other ones already read that are in many ways better. But when Rick Remender and Tony Moore work together to make comics about a reanimated Frank Castle doing pretty much anything, when you're finished and you put it down, there's really only one thing running through your head like a suspended Buick chassis rigged to slam you into a brick wall: "This is the best damn comic I have ever read."

    But mostly it’s just fun. Tons and tons of fun. I was brought on board because of the re-teaming of the Fear Agent creators and the absurdity of the whole Franken-Castle idea. I stayed on board because I loved the way these guys referenced everything from Universal Monsters to Toho movies to Marvel’s cheesy-ass ‘70s horror comics. At this point, I’m just hooked – line and sinker. No matter what the age, all men have a 12-year-old boy lurking within their soul. Moore and Remender manage to extract that young spirit and distill its essence into 22 pages of violence, humor and gore. God bless them. Read Full Review

    These are only the highlights of a ferociously funny fight. A tip of the fedora goes to colorist Dan Brown who somehow makes pasty, dead flesh and Canadian bloodshed tasteful and V.C.'s Joe Caramagna for the awesome sound effects that merely enhance the zany atmosphere. Franken-Castle--it's not Proust, but by the cosmos, it's entertaining. Read Full Review

    I feel like I'm laughing at this book, rather than with it, and I'm not mocking it. I think the over-the-top action is the only saving grace to this book, but that's just because I really enjoy 80s action flicks. Best advice I can offer is to pass on this book. Just ignore it and wait for Punisher to become Punisher again. Read Full Review
