    Punisher War Journal #3 was another excellent read. Fraction and Olivetti are a brilliant team and are cranking out one consistently good comic book. Punisher War Journal has far exceeded my initial expectations. If you haven't ever read the Punisher, give this title a try. There is much more to this title than just mindless action.

    Ariel Olivetti continues to produce some pretty art. His figures are delicately shaded and outlined in finely detailed lines, and the muted, soft colouring of Dean White adds to the more realistic style of the visuals. It might not be my first choice for a more traditional superhero book, but it works in the context of this title. Unfortunately, its in service of a below-par story which doesnt provide much insight into the title character beyond what we were given last issue. Whats more, this issue doesnt stand as complete in its own right, and those of us who want to know more are going to have to wait another month for the final instalment of Marvels big crossover book to fill in the gaps. Its bad planning on Marvels part, and I can only hope that similar events in future will be handled in such a way that satellite stories like this one arent reliant on the content of other books in order to make sense. On its own terms, the story isnt even that compelling: this is ve Read Full Review

    Ariel Olivettis art continues to stay solid through this issue. Theres just something about it that I really like. Usually Im not a big fan of the painting look of some comics, but Olivetti manages to do a pretty decent job with the artwork. While it is not my hands down favorite, it is still pretty good.

    Do not believe these reviews this is Marvel the way it should be. This is dark and real with some incredible art and great writing (despite some dialogue) This is the way the marvel universe should be. I guess it's just right up my alley. Frank feels like such an outsider I love it, and the extreme contrast. I love Bridges and the new Microchip. Damn I don't get the bad reviews this is good shit. Maybe it took 13 years of shit to make us now appreciate how good this was.
