After busting up a slave ring in downtown Philadelphia, Frank Castle has been tricked, trapped, gassed, strapped to a table and injected with a serum that will turn him into a 220-pound corpse by dawn -- six hours from now. The people who grabbed him want him to do a simple little job and then theyll give him the antidote -- simple, right? Guess again. The Punisher is nobodys errand boy.

    There is certainly a great deal of potential to be mined here. If nothing else, I'm certain Swierczynski will be able to break the all-too-familiar Punisher mold. However, most of what this issue offers is merely potential. Frank doesn't do a lot of talking, nor much killing. It's a good primer, but future issues are the real key. And unfortunately, Swierczynski's past work forces me to rein in my expectations. His characterization in Immortal Iron Fist is excellent, but other books like Cable are a bit more bland in that regard. I hope the writer will be able to hearken back to the Ennis issues and use this sticky situation to delve deep into Frank's psyche and show us something we haven't seen before. No matter how many Punisher books come and go, I know there is still more to be explored. Read Full Review
