PunisherMAX R.I.P

This February, prepare for the Punisher story you never thought you would read as Jason Aaron & Steve Dillon bring their epic run on PunisherMAX to an end with PunisherMAX #22.



Frank Castle has been through it all and just when you think you know what's coming in the series finale, think again.

"It's been a big sick bloody thrill working on this series and a right honor following in the footsteps of Garth Ennis," explained Aaron. "I must say, I'm as proud of this series as anything I've ever done at Marvel, in large part because of the amazing art team of Dave Johnson, Matt Hollingsworth and of course Steve Dillon. This was always intended to be one big story, with a very specific beginning, middle and a slam-bang mother of an end. I'm afraid I can't say any more about the ending than that....other than that it gave me chills, just getting to write it.

"I've drawn a lot of Frank Castle over the last dozen or so years and I've been lucky enough to work with some really good writers while doing so," said Dillon. "Jason has really delivered on this one, so much so that I wait for the script to arrive in my inbox like a fan waiting for the book to hit the shelves in the store. He's taken some great characters, like the Kingpin and Bullseye, and given them his own MAX twist. He's also taken Frank on a tortuous, personal journey and it's all been great fun to draw."

To ensure retailers have enough copies to meet demand, Marvel will be going back to press on PunisherMAX #17 and PunisherMAX #18. The chapters kicking off "Homeless," the name of Aaron and Dillon's final arc, are only a taste of what's in store for Frank Castle and Marvel wants to make sure no fan misses the beginning of the end.

"The day has come.  You always knew the Punisher's one-man war against organized crime would end bad, but you never knew how bad," added Marvel Editor In Chief, Axel Alonso. "With PunisherMAX #22 Jason Aaron and Steve Dillon bring the tragedy of Frank Castle's life to a boil and their epic run to a bloody climax that will haunt readers for years to come."

Retailers should check the Marvel Mailer and Diamond Retailer Site for information on ordering PunisherMAX #17 Second Printing Variant & PunisherMAX #18 Second Printing Variant. Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on all remaining issues of PunisherMAX (including a new on-sale date for PunisherMAX #20) as this series continues to garner acclaim and buzz.
