    Start to finish, The Punisher #4 is a non-stop action ride. We learn more of Agent Ortiz, meet an interesting new character, and manage to stay full speed on the action the whole time. I could use a reprieve to balance out the chaos and expect issues #5 or #6 to offer a moment of calm before the next storm, and if so, I hope the action is in the form of fiery dialogue as we get to know Agent Ortiz, her temper, and just how far she might be willing to go to rescue a friend. And I hope Juniper sticks around, too. It's a dangerous world for that kid to be in, but hey, so far she's the only source of comic relief. She's very much welcome in this series. Read Full Review

    The risk of Frank keeping Juniper round is high, and it just makes everything much more tense. At the moment she's the single source of humour, though you don't readThe Punisher to laugh out loud, but she's welcome to stay in the series as far as we're concerned. Read Full Review

    Jake G Thomas (editor) really joined an amazing creative team for this book, let's hope it continues forever. It's been great ride and so much fun that i haven't felt in a Punisher comic for some time now. Read Full Review

    Well-executed, to be sure, but not exactly ground-breaking. Read Full Review

    This issue is a step up from last issue, but still feels padded out.  I'd say it's setup heavy, but it doesn't really set up much.  My biggest complaint is the almost complete lack of anything interesting for Frank Castle to do, let alone the Punisher.  Hopefully that changes soon because I am getting very impatient waiting for something to happen.
