Welcome to the Helter Skelter Club, psychedelic hangout of every costumed wannabe, z-list villain and spandex try-hard in NYC. Its retro-tastic owner, Captain Pepper, has been up to his paisley-print elbows in bad business, but now he’s caught the attention of one decidedly ungroovy vigilante! Artist Werther Dell’Edera and writer Simon Spurrier cordially invite you to witness Frank Castle facing Trial By Weird, in a kaleidoscopic killfest featuring super hero groupies, brain-sucking Nazi midgets, scale replicas of the Devourer Of Worlds and lots and lots of ninja teddies.

    All in all, the double sized issue flew by. Nothing epic happens, but it didn't need to. Spurrier wanted to tell a different kind of Punisher story, and he did it quite skillfully. Hopefully, Marvel takes note of his creativity and puts him on something a little more permanent in the future. Read Full Review

    All in all, I'd say don't miss this one. Especially if you're enjoying Frank's current MU incarnation. It's very inventive and entertaining with a clean, exciting look. I'm telling you, Spurrier is one to watch. Good things are coming from this guy. Read Full Review

    Honestly, what more can I say than, "Frank Castle tripping?" Its not a story thats going to blow the roof off your imagination, but its not a bad little adventure. Think of it as Fear and Loathing with the Punisher. Buy the ticket and take the ride. Read Full Review
