Punisher #7 (klk Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Jan 07, 2012 9:10 am

Michael Lark is one of my favourite artists, so it was absolutely fantastic to have him draw an issue of this series, especially when he’s working with Rucka and gets another chance to draw Daredevil. I think this was probably the best issue of Rucka’s run so far, mainly because if kind of felt like an issue of Gotham Central, but with Batman switched out for Punisher. The focus was on Detectives Clemons and Bolt, and Rucka did a really good job of showing what it must be like for a Cop in a world where the Punisher exists, where he basically storms in and fucks up your crime scene. What was also great was that Clemons finding out that Bolt has been helping the Punisher was handled in a surprisingly understated way, no histrionics, no last-page reveals, just in a panel, halfway through the issue, and with no drama. Sometimes the way to be the most surprising is to not try and surprise us.

I fucking LOOOVE this run.

Rucka has cemented himself as one of the best Punisher writers ever with this book. Here we have an issue that doesn't have Frank in it at all other than in a flashback from years ago.. and it's still entertaining. Somerset and Mills are basically the main characters of this book. Have been since day one, and that's what I love most about this book. It's Gotham Central for the Marvel Universe.

Somerset and Mills?

Do you mean Clemons and Bolt?

And it's only been 7 issues, hold your horses on the best evers.

The Punisher has not had many great all-time runs in it's past. Length of run doesn't have anything to do with quality. It could be 3 issues, and still be one of the best runs on the character ever. Not THE best.. but it's in consideration for me already, easily. I like it moreso than PunisherMAX, currently. But mainly because Dillon takes so much away from the quality of that book.

And they sure look like Somerset and Mills to me! :D

PunisherMAX blows this book out of the water.

The writing is about even, in my opinion. PunisherMAX is very good.

But Steve Dillon is just so horribly wrong for that book. It's odd to read that with him on art and not expect Ennis' MK Punisher wackiness on every page. It's jarring. I don't like it. So that takes enough points off that an equally well-written book with superior art takes it for me.

Steve Dillon is the perfect artist for that book.

Yes he is. No other artist could get across the blankness in Frank Castle's eyes as well.
