    This is a version of Punisher who is violent as hell and acts on that, but it's also about what happens to soldiers who learn cause doesn't matter. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Dec 14, 2017

    Rosenberg, Vilanova, and Loughridge have put together quite the arc for Frank Castle. Its violent yet pondering. It kicks ass, but it also has some heart. With a strong story and great art, Punisher #219 earns itself a recommendation. Give this one a read. Read Full Review

    Punisher Central - Ivo Santos Jan 10, 2018

    The art of Guiu's is getting polished by the issue. The designed of the armor is much better when we compare with the last issue. His drawings are very dynamic and the action scenes very well made. I liked how Guiu focused in what matters while drawing the action scenes, you don't get distracted by the background. Great work Guiu! Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Dec 13, 2017

    I was a little skeptical about having Frank Castle in the War Machine armor and how that was going to be, but the story really makes it reasonable why Castle needs the armor. As someone who is not a regular The Punisher reader and just jumped in with this issue I was super impressed with the whole creative team and how much I liked this story. If you watched The Punisher series on Netflix and want some more Frank Castle with a little bit more comic-book twist then you should definitely check out this series! Read Full Review

    To see the Punisher in the War Machine armor is probably every fan's dream, he may not be as efficient as Rhoadey in the suit, but he is figuring it out pretty quickly. The dynamic between him and the armor's A.I. is kinda funny but keeps the humor low key to suit the character. Rosenberg and the rest of the team must be having a ball making this. Another beautiful cover by Clayton Crain too. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 13, 2017

    Does a good job of giving Frank a suit of armor without turning him into someone he's not. It's walking a fine line well enough to be interesting. Read Full Review

    Oddly enough, this issue reminded me of the Franken-Castle Punisher run, but only because the current direction feels unsustainable and ill-fitting for the title character. Read Full Review
