The Punisher #5 (Army is for wimps Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri Nov 18, 2011 11:21 am

I think this was my favourite issue of this run so far. Taking a break from the action and jumping forward 100, Greg Rucka shines a light on all the different sides of his story, and it mostly works really well. We see the Punisher slowly healing (and I like that it is slowly, most characters in comics heal way too quickly even the ones who don’t have healing factors) and interacting with a little kid. I liked how that kid saw right to the heart of Frank, and made him question whether or not he really is a soldier. We see the two cops who are on the case, and get an insight into their home lives, and then catch up with Rachel Alves and her burgeoning friendship with Spider-Man’s Pal Norah Winters. I also really like how Rucka is setting up his villains, we get a little more detail on them here, and it seems like they’re made up of former super-villains and members of super-criminal organisations who got tired of being punched in the face by Captain America and went into a different type of crime. It’s an interesting set-up, and one that will pose a challenge to Frank for sure.
