• Valery Stefanovich has put himself on a collision course with The Punisher.
•  The roots of this issue go back to Afghanistan in the 1980s where Valery spent time in the Russian Special Forces and some of the most horrific things you can imagine. Things that CHANGED him.
•  Frank and Valery have so much in common, but that never bodes well, does it?

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Feb 26, 2020

    One of Garth Ennis’ best runs on Punisher, ‘nuff said. By making Castle part of a duo rather than a singular driving force, having interesting antagonists, help to elevate this above Ennis’ other incredible works on the Punisher. This series is a must have. Best part is the Soviet storyline is very standalone from all the other works on the Punisher. The art is great throughout and the entire art team of Burrows, Ortego and Woodard deserve recognition for the great work they do here. Read Full Review

    The final few pages kick things back into high gear in one of the best helicopter-action sequences I've read in comics. It all functions to lay the ground work for the final act of this series, setting expectations high for however this unlikely American-Russian partnership may end. Read Full Review

    :This series seems to get better each issue and has found its groove nicely. The art is effective, the colors pop and subdue as needed, and the panel progression conveys action flawlessly. Even the seen-it-a hundred-times cabin interrogation scenes keep your attention and pique your interest in our new blonde friend, as it turns out shes running the show more than people know. This story has been a breath of fresh air for Franks fans. Once again, my only complaint is Franks guyliner. But Im certainly not going to tell him that I happen to like my ankle attached to the rest of me. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Mar 7, 2020

    Punisher: Soviet #4 is a pretty downbeat affair, with huge swaths of exposition buttressed by compulsory action sequences. The art is flat and the writing seems to just be going through the motions. Everyone involved is better than this! Read Full Review
