Wow what an issue and end.

Aaron ties up every loose end. The final end was just perfect. I don't want to say anything else then just buy this issue. And.. I want my damn Aaron Punisher Max Omnibus Marvel!

You know, my cousin and I both get this book, and last month we speculated on how Frank would get out of the mess he was in, and I suggested Nick Fury. I swore loudly when I opened the issue. Amazing stuff.

Awesome series and a great issue to wrap it all up. Fury rocking that flame thrower was epic.

The end of Punisher MAX.

Man, it feels weird to see this happen. Always assumed this would be done by Garth Ennis after he started this era...but damn, Aaron ended it in a truly epic story.

Oh by the way was anyone surprised Elektra was still alive in this issue? I really thought Frank had finished her off.

Wow, I can’t believe they actually did it. The Punisher is dead, I know it looked grim at the end of #21, but this is comics, there’s always a way out. But I had forgotten that this was MAX and Jason Aaron, the normal rules do not apply. With Frank dead, the focus of this epilogue issue was Nick Fury who gives Frank the funeral he probably doesn’t really deserve, and we see how his War wasn’t meaningless at all as he spurs on the general populace to fight back against crime. That ending may seem to be a positive one, but it’s troubling me, Frank’s death has basically led to a violent uprising against the state. It would be interesting to see Aaron follow that story up, but it’s probably a bit too similar to what Bendis is doing with Scarlet. I really hope that this is the last we see of MAX Punisher, after what Ennis and now Aaron have done, I doubt it can be bettered. Let the Marvel Universe have its PG-13 Frank, that should be enough.

I kind of was, but when you think about it, does it matter? Part of her mythos includes her out for death. It's kind of like killing Hawkman; pointless in the end, since she'll just be brought back.

I'm also surprised that Frank could give her a fight. He's never fared that well with her in the past.

But this was one kick-ass series, just about the best I've read since maybe JSA vs. Kobra. I want the trades...

Definitive Frank.

I agree, there are some stories that shouldn't have follow-ups. And this is one.

I think that it's the perfect ending. The only thing that I have an issue with it is that if it was vigilantes like the ones that popped up in Ennis's early Punisher MK work. Were they wanted to team up with Frank and he killed them all either because they were enjoying it or poorly planning attacks getting innocents caught in the crossfire.

I saw these guys as more like all the people in V masks at the end of V for Vendetta, standing up for themselves in their shitty neighbourhoods.
