Freakin' Ennis, man. He's been so good for so long that it can be easy to forget just what a truly great storyteller he is. Endings can be hard, but here Ennis absolutely nails it perfectly. Surprising yet satisfying, this story will stick with you probably longer than you'd like.

Punisher: Soviet #6

By: Garth Ennis, Jacen Burrows
Released: Mar 25, 2020

• The soul-chilling end of PUNISHER: SOVIET is here.
•  Frank and Val have fought side-by-side against not only a Russian mob but also against the tide of history and these issues will make you see The Punisher (and possibly the world) differently than you do now.

Somehow, every bit of this is standard Garth Ennis Punisher and yet, dammit, every bit of it is surprising and fresh. One of the greatest storytellers in the history of comics at the top of his game. And this is almost certainly the finest work Jacen Burrows has ever done—that time spent working with Alan Moore seems to have really paid off.

The only good thing I can say about this comic is, it ended. 3 issues of plot gibberish, jumping from one thing to another, from one character to the next. There's no depth to be found here, just things that Superman must see before he becomes Superman, all condensed o much, you can't possibly think they'd be relevant to Clark.
