    Punisher #6 continues to assail you with brutal violence, emotional and mental torture, and heartbreak. All emotional beats you want for a comic to grip you. Unfortunately, the lack of a destination or goal is becoming a point of frustration that makes it feel like Aaron is giving you violence and heartbreak for their own sake. Read Full Review

    My point is: that Im seeing a disconnect in Aarons story that needs to be cleared up. Sure, we get action and high-powered sequences from this creative team that will keep your interest. Nevertheless, the guts of this story were left open and havent been closed up properly. Hopefully, there is more to it coming in the next Punisher installment. For now, I leave with too many questions that just arent sitting right. Read Full Review

    While Punisher still struggles to define its protagonistprojecting him as some sort of remorseful psychopath, like Patrick Bateman gifted with a motivethe images developed out of his twisted mash-up with the Hand in issue #6 make for a delightfully disturbing read. Read Full Review

    Jason Aaron plays with the implications of Frank's supposed betrayal of war incarnate and seems to be building a psychological analysis in the undertones.

    This issue had a lot of ups and downs for me. I don't like how Aaron portrayed Frank in the flashback. He was pretty much a deadbeat and a dick, leaving his wife as he did. The battle between Ares and the Punisher was good, but they could have given him something instead of an absolute ass-whooping. Then, as simple as that, he was healed. There was no consequence to the battle. I'm looking forward to seeing Daredevil.

    A lot of yapping about the same old Punisher being the perfect machine. Even with that, it was very enjoyable for most of the action.

    The highlight of this issue was the battle between Ares and Frank. His motivations despite "keeping his wife alive", are unknown. Why Frank changed his ways, changed the skull, and joined a terrorist organization seems to be far from being explained.
    What he thinks about all this, what he's going to do, it's still a secret.
    What we have is the same monologue from the Priestess telling (or retelling) Frank's history.
    In the final issues, we see a real "world of horrors" way out of character. As if Frank would be part of some sick show played by the Hand.
