The Punisher's war on crime has come to a dead stop. Locked in a high-security prison, his arms and legs in casts and hooked to life support, Frank Castle is at the mercy of every lowlife in the place, dreaming of being the one who finally put him down. But what troubles Frank aren't the attempts on his life, but the memories shaken loose by Bullseye. Memories of a time when he wasn't yet the Punisher, but a husband and a father...

    This arc is breaking ground for the character of the Punisher. As Frank mentions, he's been in prison before but as the Punisher and never as Frank. This arc is making a clear distinction between the two identities and it is altering everything that the origin of the character has been built upon in a believable and clever way. This book is an excellent read and I highly recommend it. Read Full Review

    So this time around we get another look into the mental state of the Punisher. I love the way Frank's prison story and his return from Vietnam story are compared in side by side panels. I definitely sets the tone for the issue and gives the reader the clear knowledge that Frank views normal life as a prison. Read Full Review

    Another really strong issue of PunisherMAX. This is quickly becoming not just a must-read, but a comic that, when all is said and done, will most likely be on many shortlists for "best Punisher comics of all time." Read Full Review

    Steve Dillon delivers a clean and engaging set of pencils. His pages are effectively structured to handle the regular shifts between present and past storylines. It would be nice to have more stylistic differentiation between the two. The prison setting isn't dark or seedy enough in comparison to the bright, idyllic flashback scenes. But aside from that, Dillon captures the emotion and drama of the conflict well. Read Full Review
