The Bushwacker has taken a hostage in the heart of Times Square. With every TV camera in the world rolling, it’s New York City’s biggest nightmare, and it’s going down live. As G.W. Bridge watches the worst day of his life uncoil in real time, a lone beat cop is the only thing that’s keeping Bushwacker in check, and when Bushwacker demands to see Frank Castle... well, that’s when things get really interesting. The ending of this issue will punch you in the face and laugh at your tears.

    Overall, not a bad issue. Fraction shows he can handle Frank Castle just as well as Garth Ennis can without the blood, swearing and sex. Read Full Review

    Punisher War Journal #5 was another solid read. Fraction continues to crank out quality issues on this young title. Fraction has plenty of skills and I think he has just scratched the surface of possibilities with this title. I think that Punisher War Journal is only going to get better as the year progresses.
