    Punisher Central - Ivo Santos Jan 30, 2013

    Well this issue was non stop action since the beggining until the end like a good Punisher comic should be. Johnny Nightmare was a good Punisher villain in hand to hand it was a little out of Frank's league but gladly Frank outsmart him in the end. It's really sad to see this issue as the last of this mini series this last three issues were very entertaining, but i will be with high hopes to see this creative team together to write once more a Punisher mini series or maybe an ongoing.

    This is a series that looks top-notch but is weighed down by an excessive amount of captions and dialogue -- which is funny because there's even a moment where Frank says Johnny chats too much. Despite this complaint, this was a solid final issue. The extended fight sequence is harsh and violent, but oddly enough, the issue ends on a note that made me smirk. This is certainly worth a read if you're a fan of The Punisher. Read Full Review

    Did readers make the wrong choice in overlooking Punisher: Nightmare #5 and its predecessors? They made a choice, neither wrong nor right. Those who did leave Punisher: Nightmare on the shelves are missing out on a great story with big action and an intense plot. The entire series was top-notch stuff on all counts that showed that Scott M. Gimple knows how to script a mean comic book. Read Full Review
