JIGSAW CONCLUSION A prison transfer across the Brooklyn Bridge is the final arena in which our combatants face each other for the last time. Frank Castle, The Punisher, a man no longer certain of his mission. Jigsaw, a man whose entire purpose in life is to see Frank Castle driven before him. Bridge and S.H.I.E.L.D. trying to keep these two mad-dog killers away from each other…and the whole city of New York trapped in-between. All roads have led to this: the inevitable bloodbath at the end of JIGSAW.

    As I mentioned, this arc feels very much like the end of an era for War Journal. The Jigsaw conflict definitely comes to a close. Most of the plot threads Fraction has been toying with come to an end as well. If I didn't know better, I'd think the series was actually ending with this issue. It'll be interesting to see where the book goes from here. Remender has my vote to take over fully once Fraction leaves in a few months, but Marvel had better find a more suitable artist. As much as I'm enjoying this take on Punisher, particularly with Punisher MAX no longer being a viable alternative, I have no problem dropping the book if need be. Read Full Review
