FRANKEN-CASTLE PART 2 The Punisher is dead, so who, or what, is the giant patchwork monster skulking through the tunnels under New York? And what do those strange armored Japanese hunters tracking him want?

    Frankencastle continues to move at a satisfactory pace and provides just the right amounts of crazy to keep me happy. Although I have a few gripes with the writing, I'm having a great time reading this. Fans of Remender and Moore's previous collaborations on Fear Agent will undoubtedly get a kick out of what the two are doing here. And if the cliffhanger is any indication, things will definitely be hitting the fan come next issue. Read Full Review

    Long live Frankencastle! I hope never to see that boring old Punisher ever again. Read Full Review

    Overall, it's not perfect; it seems to be trying to walk a balance between a serious take on the main character and an embrace of the sillier trappings of the greater setting, but there's just not that much that's interesting to say about Frank Castle, and this weighs down what could be a fun bit of monster action. But even though the character development lags, there's plenty of enjoyability to be had here, and it looks like the real action and violence are going to kick in with the next chapter. If things don't get even better at that point, we should ask Marvel for our money back. Read Full Review

    This certainly isn't the direction I'd have expected for "The Punisher" but then again, Remender seems to delight in turning up some surprises for his readers, and this is no exception. It may be a little sillier in places than the grim "Punishermax" title, but at its core, don't write it off as being a joke. "Punisher" is still delivering the goods. Read Full Review
