Two issues to go for the conclusion of this series, on sale tomorrow!




Good news for all Punisher fans, this week there was news that the Michael Bendis, David Mack and 
Bill Sienkiewicz are working on a sequel of Daredevil: End of Days, called Punisher: End of Days and it will follow the story from the point of view of Frank Castle.

Punisher: End of Days
is still a working title and there is no release date scheduled.

Punisher 40th Birthday

We might get something from Marvel reserved for this 40th anniversary of the Punisher. I asked to Axel Alonso on Comic Book Resources Q&A if there was any plans for something "special" for this birthday of the character this year and he answered with a vague "Yes", so we will have to wait a little bit more news and i will let you know if something come up.

That's all for this post! Keep punishin' people!

If Punisher has a recurrent story all these years... well... maybe it's him in prison and most of them are really good stories and Nathan Edmondson built a very solid story.

After the events of last issue, Black Widow "delivered" or "dropped" the Punisher in a south american prison.

Nathan Edmondson built a strong story where we can see Frank trying to take info as much as he can about the inmates and through his inner monologue we can see what he thinks about criminals in jail, there is nothing new in here but it was great to see that Frank's psych is still untouched.
After a few issues without seeing his supporting cast it was good to see Officer Sam Stone and Lou, both of them are still in L.A. and dealing in their own ways to the increasing crime rating but both are in trouble...

After a few issues that Frank's mission seemed to be in stand-by it got back in the right track and he seems really focused on it.
This issue isn't action packed but i think Edmondson is building a strong root for this upcoming arc and it doesn't seem like a slow burn at all, and we got a plus he add a new player to this run, the second sun came to L.A. to finish what his brother couldn't do it.

I really hope that this new villain can bring new things to the table and this issue feels like a new beggining for the character, so for everyone who wants a jumping point, now it's the chance.

Mitch Gerads continues to shine in this book, his artwork is consistent and he did a really cool fight between Frank and some inmates. As always he nailed it and his contribute make this book even better issue by issue.

OVERALL RATE: 7.5 out of 10
