    Issue nineteen was kind of a confusing read, at first, but a good one nonetheless. It's another Marvel book that will be hard to say goodbye to when it ends, but it seems as though it's going out with a bang! Read Full Review

    The Punisher #19 does an amazing job of setting up the final issue of Nathan Edmondson and Mitch Gerads run on the Punisher. Though it may be a little confusing near the start, it quickly takes us into the action, with the Punisher's war being as intense as ever before. Read Full Review

    Mitch Gerads artwork continues to be good, if a bit stiff at points. What irked me the most is how the artwork is inconsistent with what is shown on the recap page. We see how the Punisher looked in the bar when killing the super villains, so why is he dressed differently when exiting the bar. This seems like a bad oversight. I liked the use of static panels and seeing the Punisher slowly creep up and kill enemies, giving a nice sense of his training and power. While we know he's great with guns, it's nice to see him be tactically smart as well. A few moments, such as the Punisher killing a guy then turning feel awkwardly stiff. Gerads uses small lines to convey motion, but there is TOO much motion conveyed. A simple sprint is fine, but the Punisher sprints forward, then turns. It just seems off to the brain.

    This overly gritty aesthetic extends to the artwork as well. The colors are all drab and washed out, and there's a real lack of memorable or fun carnage to be found. It's possible the point of the comic isn't meant to be reveling in cathartic destruction; I just don't see what else the point could be. Punisher is so colossally capable the action lacks any sense of tension and without any creativity to the action it all ends up tragically tedious. The closest point of comparison I can make is that it's a lot like watching someone else play a video game; the actions look fun but it's hard to stay invested when you're so detached from everything.
