    A fantastic, psychological read of how the Punisher myth erodes one man's identity. So far, the smartest read of the week. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin May 13, 2012

    This issue is kind of the perfect storm for me. I really like Greg Rucka, I really like done-in-one comics, and I really like this iteration of the Punisher. Taken all together, I can't help but ask what's not to love? It's not quite as good as the Ozzy-centric issue, but it still makes for a great read. Read Full Review

    The issue isn'textremely entertaining but it does a decent job at keeping the reader engaged.The dialogue flows well and the decision for Rucka to tell Bolt's story throughthe flashback convention, while being interrogated is an interesting one. Notall issues can be full of action and can move story forward at a lightningpace. Sometimes it is essential to have an issue here and there that providesbackstory or setup for things to come. In that regard, this issue performs thatpurpose admirably. Read Full Review

    Punisher #11 features a solid script by Rucka, supported by some great visuals from the art team. While it doesn't further the long term plot of the book one bit, it provides a nice breather issue...call it a 'reorientation', if you will. Well deserving of the cover price, at any rate!

    IGN - Joey Esposito May 9, 2012

    Overall, while the art doesn't exactly do much for the visual tone of the series, Rucka crafts another engaging " if out-of-left-field " story that illuminates the world of the Punisher within the regular Marvel Universe like few have done in the past. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 11, 2012

    "The Punisher" is a consistently good series, and #11 continues that streak. I appreciated the end result of Bolt's encounter with the zombies and his subsequent outing to the police force; it provides a lot more story fodder for the months to come. This is a good example of a series that has found just the right pace, not only for collected editions but for the serialized format too. As always, "The Punisher" is a pleasure to read.
