Punisher #1 Review

Overview

Punisher #1 provides a fresh jumping on point for new readers. The newness in this “All-New Marvel NOW!” title is that Frank Castle now resides in Los Angeles. The story starts off with a special ops team saving what appears to be a prisoner of some unknown group in Togo. Then we come upon Frank Castle, who is brutally getting information out of some drug runners in Mexico. He means to learn to whom the drugs were going. Once he gets his intel, he kills his captive without a care. This intel leads to another person who points Frank to the cartel. Rather than sit back and discuss things, Frank decides to take a bazooka to their building and blow up his informant inside the car. The issue ends with the special ops team from the beginning, revealing themselves through their own conversation to be the Howling Commandos. Their mission: to kill Frank Castle. read more
