A Secret Invasion tie-in! With an alien armada laying the world to waste, Stuart “Rampage” Clarke decides to make his move. Skrull Armageddon is just a backdrop for his ultimate revenge- against Tony Stark, against S.H.I.E.L.D., and against anyone that ever stood in his way. And what about Frank Castle? Where does The Punisher fit into Clarke's plans? It's the end of the world as we know it. Time to cross some names off the old enemies list.

    This series exists to show the Punisher re-engaged with the Marvel Universe, and "Punisher War Journal" #24 is a perfect example of that. And it's an absolute blast, from cover to cover. Read Full Review

    Issue #24 is probably the first time I've had fun with War Journal in a while. It's a simple, traditional Punisher story that happens to have Skrulls in it, as opposed to a lot of the SI tie-ins these days that all have the same script with that title's respective character written in.

    I should admit that I've never been a huge Punisher fan, although there have certainly been some excellent stories in the past. The art in this one is great, and the story's solid, but it's just barely a Punisher story - so it's only recommended for Secret Invasion completists or fans of Chaykin. Or those who like to see lots of bad guys getting killed. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Robert Greene Oct 21, 2008

    With the exception of Stuart Clark, this comic has little to offer both Punisher and Secret Invasion readers. A mediocre spinoff with a dash of betrayal and revenge, this comic contains the same themes we see in every other Punisher storyline, leaving many readers with table scraps. Pick it up if you want but don't hold your breath for outstanding issue. Read Full Review
