Punisher MAX #16

Best issue of the series....Easily one of the best Punisher issues ever.

I was right about what Bullseye whispered to Frank (Zechs :P ) and not going to spoil it but I'll jus add that Aaron goes into just what Frank is fighting to Punish all this time. Way different but stays very faithful to Ennis's take which I feel really sets Aarons take apart.

Always. On another note, I like how Dillon changed Frank's eyes in the flashback after the park shooting. Before that it was always empty and detached and then it went into classic Punisher perpetual anger.

This was another great issue, but it's still reading this as Aaron's Punisher and not Ennis.

Just brutal, the page where Frank tells his wife he’s leaving… the emotional brutality… followed by the actual brutality. Nobody draws guts like Steve Dillon. This storyline has pretty much revolutionised the Punisher’s origins, and made what was a pretty simple, Batman-style origin into something a lot more realistic and terrifying. The page of young Frank Castle basically becoming the Punisher is iconic. The present-day story was very good too, I loved how Aaron tied in Big Jesus back to the Kingpin’s story, giving this trip down memory lane a larger purpose. This book is just so fucking good.
