    The art was very good once again. Plain, simple and to the point. Bloody and gory when it needed to be, but nicely detailed as well in some panels, like the rainy scenes at the end. I hope the great job keep up on one of the best Punisher books ever. Read Full Review

    All in all, this issue does its job well. It establishes a firm starting point for the next arc, complete with a clear, logical setting and motivation. The rough edges are easy enough to ignore that most readers should enjoy this issue. Read Full Review

    This is still one of the best ongoing series that I am reading but I was disappointed by this finale for several reasons. Perhaps because the arc was drawn out for too many issues I had set my expectations too high for the finale. In this regard, I would be curious to see someone pick up this issue without having read the rest of the arc to see how they felt it read. Overall, this is a good book but it is nothing as great as previous issues in this series. Read Full Review
