    This series continues to deliver and it doesn't look like it'll be slowing down anytime soon. Read Full Review

    Greg Rucka's take on the Punisher continues to reveal new interesting layers to the character, and that's saying a lot considering he's often deemed a one trick pony. If you haven't been reading this series, it's in your best interest to pick it up from the beginning to see what all the fuss is about. The Punisher still remains one of Marvel's best books.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Alex Evans Mar 20, 2012

    There really isn't much to say here. This isn't a bad issue by any means and it's competent in both art and script. But it's not anything more than that. It felt as though Rucka was running in place here. This is the first stumble this series has had but, given that this issues entire problem was a lack of significance or real meat on the bones, I imagine it'll be quickly forgotten. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Mar 15, 2012

    Overall, next month's crossover doesn't fill me with any sort of excitement and that's as someone who greatly enjoys Mark Waid's run on the new "Daredevil." Still, I'm willing to wait and be pleasantly surprised. As part of the ongoing "The Punisher" series, this issue is good; as a lead-in to that crossover, though, I'm not as impressed.

    Overall, this is an issue that establishes Rachel as a major player in the Punisher's war on crime and the Exchange. Read Full Review

    Punisher Central - Neil Byce Mar 15, 2012

    This issue does give readers some action and some interesting plot points. It picks up on last month's fantastic cliff-hanger and it has Frank in a very unique situation to defend himself. It has a unique diner scene that allows for some valuable interaction between Frank and Rachel and it has some build-up for the epic 'Omega Effect' crossover coming next month. That is honestly about it though. Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - M S R Mar 23, 2012

    While it's not an appalling nosedive, there's an undeniable drop in quality in this month's Punisher. It's not bad per se, but it's certainly not very good- which is almost a sin considering the consistency the title has maintained since the relaunch last year. I will be hoping that it recovers its footing in the crossover issue next month and resumes delivering one of the best mainstream graphic novel content out there. Read Full Review
