One kills vampires. One kills mobsters. The Punisher isn't a vampire, Blade isn't a mobster -- it SEEMS like these two would get along swimmingly. But will they? And how does this all tie in with the Ringmaster's plans for world domination?

    Jeff Johnson steps in to provide a guest-issue, and while I'm a little concerned as Scott Kolins had proven to be a steady monthly artist during his time on the Flash, Jeff Johnson makes for a pretty close match artistically that I really didn't take note of the change in art until I was typing up the credits for this review. I will give the art full marks for playing up the tough guy images of the two leads without going over the top, as both characters are allowed to express their tougher than nails attitude, but at the same time the art also shows these characters with their guard down which helps to sell the illusion that these are normal characters, and not simply killing machines. The tension of the opening scene where these two characters take measure of each other is also nicely captured by the art, as I loved the scene where the Punisher continues to keep his gun trained on Blade long after he's made it clear that he's stood down.
