THE RESURRECTION OF MA GNUCCI CONCLUSION She’s supposed to be dead- but after being mauled by bears and set aflame by Frank Castle, Ma Gnucci is still very much alive (although not kicking). The dynamic team of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon uncover the weird science behind Ma’s resurrection, and deliver a final blow to those who tried to get in the Punisher’s way. Punisher and Molly Von Richtofen vs. Elite!

    In the end, Frank finally unravels the mystery of Ma Gnucci's return some 3 issues after the readers were informed. What he does from there is pretty predictable. I will say that Ennis pays homage to "Welcome Back, Frank" in his final scene, so it's nice to see the writer come full circle in a way. This series has done little to fill the void left by Ennis on Punisher MAX, but I never really expected it to. War Zone is merely a love letter to a simpler era of Punisher comics. It was a fun, wild ride, but I think I've had my fill by now. Read Full Review

    So don't expect any sort of groundbreaking literary magnificence here, but if you want an entertaining story about the Punisher facing a challenge and overcoming it through his propensity for wanton violence, look no further. If Ennis wants to come back and do this sort of thing every few years, let's hope Marvel goes for it. His brand of mindless action is always acceptable. Read Full Review

    "Punisher War Zone" #6 is a cynically gleeful comic, and it makes no apologies for it. Read Full Review
