    Moore and Chan make The Punisher look more like a beautifully illustrated children's storybook instead of a typical dour comic book. Somehow this just makes the whole idea of Frank metamorphosing into the Frankenstein's Monster even giddier and more apropos. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Tony Rakittke Nov 18, 2009

    This iteration of Punisher has been largely hit or miss for me. I enjoyed the first arc of stories, and then quickly lost interest afterwards. This storyline however hooked me in a big way, mostly because it was so absolutely and delightfully absurd that it left me grinning like a mad bastard; I want my comics to surprise me like this more often. I want them to leave me wanting more. It doesn't happen nearly as much as I want it to though, and that's a shame, but this issue, holy crap, this issue was too freaking off the wall not to enjoy. If Remender and Moore can keep up the weirdness, we're in for some good times. Read Full Review

    I'm eagerly awaiting the next issue to see where Remender and Moore plan on taking it from here. This is going to be one crazy ride and I can't remember the last time I was this excited for a Punisher story. Read Full Review

    Long story short: this is just the sort of bizarre twist I enjoy and if you do too, you might want to check it out. I can’t wait to see where this one goes. Read Full Review

    The dramatic shift in tone is a little jarring but Remender gamely attempts to sell the story and Moore's art makes it easy to ignore its ludicrousness. Read Full Review
