BULLSEYE, PART ONE They say he's the deadliest assassin the world has ever known. They say that once he sets his sights on someone, he never misses, no matter what he has to go through to get them. Though his methods may seem unorthodox, even insane, they say he's never failed to kill a single target. No one knows where he comes from or why he does it. No one knows his name. They all just call him Bullseye. And now he's come to New York City, with his sights set on Frank Castle. Let the hunt begin. If you thought our new MAX version of Kingpin was intense, you ain't seen nothing yet. Explicit Content $3.99

Aaron adds some depth to Frank's internal fight as his age and his conscience seem to be creeping up on him at long last. But, there's still something off about the whole thing. They tout Bullseye as this unstoppable expert in the art form of murder, yet he's still using these goofy methods of killing his targets that have been Read Full Review

    Hopefully, later issues of "Punisher MAX" can slide back to the tone that the earlier issues of this new series had. It's hard to keep from wondering what this script would have been like had, say, Goran Parlov or Leandro Fernandez drawn this instead. But right now, it's strangely off-balance. Read Full Review
