BLOOD AND SAND CONCLUSION The Punisher's one-man crusade to stop the white-power border war kicked off by the Hate-Monger comes to a head in this, the bloody conclusion to Blood and Sand. Everybody's trying to kill everybody else. Frank Castle's been beaten within an inch of his life. Hate-Monger's terrible machines broadcast wave after wave of unbridled rage into the desert, making it even harder for Clarke and Bridge to trust one another. By the end of the night, it'll be all our heroes can do to aim straight...and not at each other. This cannot end well.

    But I do have a problem with this whole Captain America angle. Obviously, since Cap and Frank's altercation in Civil War, and Frank's reaction to Cap's death in issue #5, this story arc was a long time coming. By the way, does anyone believe that Cap is going to stay dead for long? Quesada and Brubaker pretty much acknowledge that his return is inevitable: Cap's ongoing title has been plotted for the next couple of years, even though he is supposedly at the bottom of the Arctic. In the meantime, they choose to embroil Frank Castle in a weird storyline where he takes up Cap's costume and mission and label the arc as part of "The Initiative." I can understand the Initiative in the current Iron Man comic, but involving the Punisher in this just seems... forced. It's a cheap way to get more mileage out of the Civil War aftermath even though yet another "summer event" has started. And I can't believe that Fraction would be the genesis for the nonsense; it must have come from editoria Read Full Review

    If you can't get enough of Nazi themed villains then run, don't walk, to your nearest comic book shop and buy this entire story arc. You will be in heaven. Now, if you enjoy well written stories, with strong dialogue, excellent character work, engaging plotlines and complex villains then save your money and avoid Punisher War Journal. Read Full Review

    What a stupid antagonist for Frank. The dude let's him go cause his house is On fire like shoot him and then go fix your house...it was just so goofy...Frank really killing that Tali chick and hiding it was really interesting. I liked the future this issue set up but the actual conclusion to this arc was garbage.
