    THE PUNISHER #3 opens the door to Frank's past, twists some foundational aspects of the character, and may cause some fans to be irate over these alterations.

    Punisher #3 is another solid entry in the series with plenty of violence, great art, a flashback that fills in lanks about his past to make his retcon a teeny bit more palatable, and strong emotional bits surrounding Maria. That said, the well-choreographed violence is starting to feel like more of the same without a clear direction for Frank's mission. Read Full Review

    Perhaps there are other plans to subvert these early issues in the future, but given everything available to readers in the moment Punisher #3 is an ill-considered and repugnant comic without redeeming values. Read Full Review
