Bionder reviewed Punisher #12 May 31, 2023

Worst Punisher ending that the Punisher ever had in more than 37 years (since he has an ongoing series).
Bad dialogues and bad direction. It's not about the skull or the weapons, it's about the pointless deconstruction Jason Aaron did to the character that at the end of this issue it was irrelevant. This new "age" Punisher isn't for me. I'm sticking with the old Punisher series and stories u more

Bionder reviewed Punisher #11 Apr 26, 2023

This run disappoints everyone who wants to look for a Punisher story. This isn't a Punisher story. And it's not the "heavy metal skull", or the lack of guns in my opinion. It's really the flashbacks and how Jason Aaron is retconning Frank Castle origins.
Jason Aaron proved more than once he got a weird fixation with Frank and Maria marriage, or in this case, every time he got a chance to wri more

Punisher #11

By: Jason Aaron, Jesus Saiz
Released: Apr 19, 2023

Frank Castle has finally embraced the role of Fist of the Beast, the High Slayer of the world's most powerful clan of murderers, the Hand. And the rest of the Marvel Universe has taken notice. If Frank really wants to end his war once and for all, he's going to have to fight his way through some old familiar faces.

Better issue than what I've expected. There are good moments, but this doesn't feel like a Punisher story.
Long gone are those days when he went after the bad guys and punish them, now it's too much complicated with unnecessary nuances added by Jason Aaron to justify what Frank Castle is.

Punisher #7

As Frank wrestles with devils within and without, Maria Castle finds more and more of her memories returning, including ones of those fateful days when her husband first returned from war. Or did he?

This was an entertaining issue, the good thing about these War Journal series is that it's way better than the main ongoing series.
Still can't understand Frank's fixation with swords when he could finish the job easier with them. Still hoping to see some kind of explanation for that and not something random.

Punisher War Journal: Brother #1

OLD FRIENDS DIE HARD! Lady Bullseye failed. Lord Deathstrike failed. Every assassin sent to kill Frank fails. The leaders of the underworld - crime bosses, heads of terrorist organizations, and even a corrupt government or two come together to solve the growing problem of Frank Castle. Sharing intel, resources, and money, a collective underworld pu...

Bionder reviewed Punisher #6 Sep 13, 2022

The highlight of this issue was the battle between Ares and Frank. His motivations despite "keeping his wife alive", are unknown. Why Frank changed his ways, changed the skull, and joined a terrorist organization seems to be far from being explained.
What he thinks about all this, what he's going to do, it's still a secret.
What we have is the same monologue from the Priestess telling more

Punisher #6

By: Jason Aaron, Paul Azaceta
Released: Sep 7, 2022

Frank Castle wants to end his war once and for all. But standing in his way is none other than the God of War himself, Ares, who sees the Punisher as his greatest disciple. A disciple who has forgotten his true self and must be reminded of the ways of war.

Disappointing issue. Probably the worst that was released since issue 1. Nothing new happened, it felt like a filler issue. Lots of retcon's to Frank's childhood,. probably manipulated or not. At this point the reader doesn't know what is true or not.
This looks like Jason Aaron is merging his Punisher max run with Punisher 616, with a lot of elements from his own run.

Is the Punisher truly the Fist of the Beast and the predestined High Slayer of the Hand? Or is he nothing more than a prisoner of their lies? And if there's one thing Frank Castle has never been particularly good at's a prisoner.

Bionder reviewed Punisher #4 Jul 17, 2022

This issue was a bit better than the previous issues by Jason Aaron, but this storyline is getting even more confused by each issue. The latest "revelation" kind of cleared up what is going on but we still don't know what is going on with Frank.
Frank continues to be a third person in his own comic, not only we don't know what is he thinking and especially what is his purpose in this run. more

But the world's newest and deadliest dealers in wildly powerful arms, the Apostles of War, are proving to be the Punisher's toughest foes yet.
