    I'd forgotten how cool a Punisher story could be. I do like the FrankenCastle stories but this simply different. The Punisher and Bullseye should both be portrayed as crazy and deadly characters. Being a "Max" book allows there to be more adult situations including the violence and language. I've liked Frank's appearances in the regular Marvel books but this is almost like a whole new character. Keep this one away from the kids. I just hope the final confrontation between Punisher and Bullseye won't be a let down. Read Full Review

    The Aaron/Dillon run continues on with the second part of "Bullseye" and it's a very good comic. This version of Bullseye is entertaining and completely mad, and I can't wait to see what he does next in his effort to kill Frank Castle. Read Full Review

    Dillon's art is awesome. Whether it was a good idea or not to flip-flop Bullseye's personality, Dillon pulls this off very well. The facial expressions between the crazy, flippant or deadly serious variations are conveyed very well. This is an excellent companion to the story. Read Full Review

    I have to wonder if PunisherMAX would evoke the same mixed reactions in me if Steve Dillon weren't illustrating the series. Of Ennis' Marvel Knights Punisher work, Dillon illustrated nearly every comic worth reading. The artist is simply too closely ingrained with that incarnation of the character. Dillon doesn't try to dirty up his style or do much of anything to reflect the fact that he is now tackling a very different sort of Punisher. Aside from the fact that the MAX label allows for more blood and nudity, there aren't any significant visual differences between Dillon's two takes on Punisher. Moreover, the emotion of some of Frank's scenes is somewhat diluted by Dillon's weak facial work. I do appreciate having such a clean, presentable MAX book after some of the murky, muddled Punisher stories in recent years. All the same, I'd really like the series to show more visual character.
