    If you've been missing out on this book, this issue -- which is the sixth part in a multi-part storyline, mind you -- is very approachable. From here, you'll be hooked, as Rucka and company are ready to throw a few more curveballs at the Punisher. This issue ends with a double-page spread cliffhanger that will undoubtedly kick off the next issue in an explosive manner. Read Full Review

    With tight, strong plotting and visually compelling art by new artists Matthew Southworth and Matthew Clark, The Punisher #6 continues a streak of great comics in this most-recent incarnation of the character. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Matt Demers Dec 7, 2011

    If anything, this issue really reminded me of a PUNISHER MAX storyline where a woman that's crossed paths with Frank becomes an assassin to get revenge. It doesn't make this issue any worse, but it keeps me from fully appreciating it. I mean, I thought this was why Punisher was turned into Franken-Castle and back again: to get new, exciting stories. The fact that this issue feels cribbed from another series starring the same character leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Read Full Review

    No complaints with the art and colors and the overall story was well done but nothing major occurred as this was set up issue for something larger coming down the pipe. Read Full Review

    I'm afraid this series is starting to lose it's luster for me. The story just feels empty. There's no real substance to it. Punisher says nothing once again. Read Full Review

    While the artwork of Punisher #6 might be lacking, the story definitely delivers. The Punisher has been one of Marvel best new series, and it continues down that path with issue #6. It's just really sad that the book's art took a dive for such an important moment in this series. Read Full Review

    I read this issue in what seemed like less than 2 minutes. It was a very unsatisfying use of my $2.99. Ill flip through the next issue and if it looks like more of the same Ill have to pass. What started out as a very promising series has taken a very bad turn. Read Full Review
