Punisher #14 (Thwip Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Aug 25, 2012 10:05 am

After what feels like longer than it should have been, The Punisher returns with the final assault on Stephanie Gerard and The Exchange. This was a very enjoyable issue, with both sides attempting to outwit each other, and of course, in the end, Frank Castle won. I do wonder just how he managed to bust in the window, was the bullet we saw in close-up some kind of tank-buster or something? I’m not a bullet expert. But any quibbles I had with that were ended by the awesome sight of the Punisher swinging into the room on a stolen web-shooter, that’s a classic moment of the Marvel Universe sneaking in to a grounded book, and it’s the kind of thing I love. In the end, Rachel Cole-Alves kills Gerard, and she has her revenge. So where does she go now? Will she stick around as ‘Punisher-Girl’? And just how do the events of this issue set us up for War Zone? The next two issues are going to be very exciting. Mico Suayan’s artwork was fantastic once again, he reminds me a little bit of an alternately reality JH Williams III who uses normal panel layouts instead of going crazy.

I really didn't like the idea of another Lady Punisher as the first one from the 90's failed so miserably, but Rucka has done a great job of building the character and it is high time that Frank retired.

I'm not usually a Punisher in the proper Marvel U fan, but Rucka is kicking all kinds of ass on this!

i'm not a Punisher fan at all, but i've LOVED what Rucka has done with this series.
