    Sure, it's campy and sometimes silly. Sure, it's predictable (after defeating Hellsgaard, Frank'll probably use the Blood-Stone to become human again to continue punishing the wicked, like this whole Frankencastle thing never happened). But, the really gut-wrenching and visceral moments that Remender throws into the mix make the whole thing come together as a true comic book classic. I, for one, can't wait to read Punisher #16 next month! Read Full Review

    At the end of the day: it’s awesome. It’s slightly less fun than previous issues in this arc, but what it lacks in fun it makes up for in bloodshed. So I’m going with a B+ on this one. Read Full Review

    Whether you're on board with this storyline probably depends on how seriously you take all the regular superheroic nonsense of the Marvel universe, but as long as you're willing to enjoy some wacky ideas and good old ultraviolence, Remender has a fun story going here, which is a nice change for a character that can often get too morose for his own good. It seemed like a long shot, but so far, it's actually paying off. Read Full Review

    "The Punisher" seems like it would be a big bag of silly these days, and maybe that's true. But there's also a nice amount of drama and pathos mixed in as well, and the end result is a comic that's satisfying to read month after month. I'm not entirely sure how long "Frankencastle" is going to run, but for now I'm content to see just where Remender is taking us. At the end of the day it's fun, and that's good in my book.
