    This is the second Punisher book of the week and just like the first I really enjoyed this one. It is a wordy book but it is a very solid story; so for me you cant really go wrong here. I dont understand why some people dont like wordy comic books. Of course if they are written crap then that can't be helped, but I really think that more people need to give this book a chance. There are three more issues left and I can't wait to get my hands on #3 next week. Read Full Review

    Punisher: Nightmare #2 comes as quite the surprise, separating itself from the premise of #1 and putting a shocking spin on Punisher lore. Fans can only hope that this comic is leading to a new Punisher with even more problems and less of a one-track mindset. Marvel needs to snatch this up and put Jake Niman into the Marvel Universe for good, because this is a great new direction for the character. Read Full Review

    Like the previous issue, the only real saving grace of Punisher: Nightmare is Mark Texeria's art and Frank D'Armata's colors. However, even those two can't save this awful issue. Texeria delivers some pretty pages, but more than a few turn into a muddled mess. The brief scenes of action we get lack any sort of punch or excitement. An okay art package coupled with trite writing makes for one crappy comic book. Read Full Review

    This is a series that shifts its focus away from the headlining character, and for four bucks, I'd hope to see more time dedicated to the man with the skull on his shirt. Read Full Review
