1 Punisher on Mon Nov 02, 2009 2:01 am

Punisher #10

The most important Punisher issue in years gets no response? (Editor: at the IGN forum.) The consequential build-up between The Hood vs. the Punisher finally lives up the hype, taking Frank to the place he wishes he never wished for. He makes a crucial decision, and a lot of nutty things happened. It's as Disney struck Marvel a new chord, allowing them to make editorial decisions instead of the typical "see you next week" continuity we're used to. Things HAPPEN to Pun here, and as physical as it gets in this week's List issue, I wonder if this issue didn't tear the man even further in #10.

This book is pretty cool, I lost interest in PWJ during that awful Nazi/KKK storyline, but this book is back into the swing of things. I don't remember the artist of this arc, but it seemed like he was avoiding to draw eyes the whole time. Laughing

I'm enjoying the MAX series as well (where's the thread for THAT or are we combining the two here?).

So...the Punisher's dead now?!
Okay, not really, but he got all chopped up by Daken in the Dark Reign: Punisher one-shot! And now he's going to be reassembled as...Frankencastle? I'm speechless!

Sounds awful. They didn't learn their lesson from that '90s Punisher series? Punisher and supernatural don't mix.

Punisher #11

With Jason Aaron's Punishermax out, did you really expect anything but a total revamp of the 616 series? There's no reason to have two Punisher books be the same; especially with Aaron's War Zone-influenced book coming off the way it does, merely having Castle running around killing folks would get old. So Remender thought: why not have him kill monsters? Or actually, have him protect monsters? It's definitely a risk, but with Tony Moore on board and Ghost Rider almost out the door, the supernatural take on Punisher isn't all that surprising. What's surprising is maybe how good this is. Hearing the words "Franken Castle" are bound to make any comic fan cringe, but Ricky Remdawg pulls this one off--and with flying colors. Sure, it's a spotlight for Moore's artwork and creative prowess at drawing silly, strange and absolutely wonderful looking monsters. But did you really think Punisher would kill Osbourne? Did you really think they would just kill off a character that's proven to be a hot seller for their line and end the run of a writer who's doing the best Pun since Ennis? Nope. Credit Marvel for taking risks and giving us Ghost Rider fans the book we always wanted. Oops.

4/5 Bullets - Impressive if you like the movie Grindhouse, or were onboard with Aaron's Ghost Rider

Now that Ghost Rider is on its way out, this is becoming my new favorite "Marvel Knights"-level book. Jason Aaron's already doing the steady crime-and-Punisher type deal over on the Max side of things, so why not go 360 and Monster Mash it up for a change! I mean, unless street level is the only way you seeing this title being fit, I say give it a chance. Why?

The art.

It's out of this world. Tony Moore draws creatures better than anyone else. The landscapes and environments are pretty downright wondrous for such an underground-leveled drama. And Rick Remender isn't afraid to pull the plug on certain folks to prove his point. Frank isn't saying much right now, but he's never--and this next issue is really going to go full blast.

You just got to be more of a fan of the traditional type comics to enjoy it.

4/5 - Another fun romp through Monster Island with Franken Castle

Punisher #14

Has anyone else enjoyed this new, albeit temporary, direction this Punisher book has taken? I know a lot of people are "used" to how Punisher is; but with Aaron's Punisher MAX doing the typical blood, guts, and mafia thing at the moment, I give Rick Remender all the credit in the world. It's one thing to do something different; it's another to do them at a high level.

The supernatural take on Punisher has never been this good. I think that's why most pundits are staying quiet at the moment. They don't see eye-to-eye with how things are being constructed within the title, and they're just going to run away. Well, I'll be happy to enjoy this title all by myself, then.

With that said, this issue isn't one of FrankenCastle's fine points. It's all set-up and backstory, but again, I love how it's put together. Henry and Frank have great chemistry--or lack thereof--giving the book some much needed humor. It helps to have other monsters around "actin' a fool." The backstory about Robert Hellsgard is all painted, perhaps a little flat in some areas, but it's diverse enough to seperate the current from the past. It's a needed issue in order to build up a new villain as well as giving lending him some sympathy, and for that I say mission: accomplished. Perhaps fans will take a look at this issue again once things get heavy towards the end of the arc.

3.5/5 B&B - Enjoyable interlude

Without getting too heavy into my positive feelings about Remender's direction with this book, I will just say that this title remains heavily consistent--as long as you're with it. If you've fully accepted that Punisher is now FrankenCastle, admitting that you were as wrong as many about the initially-stupid idea's now surprisingly astounding execution, this issue will prove as enjoyable as the rest. It's time for FrakenPunisher to confront Hellsgard--whose Victorian-Era origin was fully explored last issue--and Remender makes sure Castle storms the, well, castle full guns a blazing.

With Romand Boschi taking over for Tony Moore this month we see the types of horrifying imagery from Jason Aaron's well-regarded Ghost Rider run: flying dragons, putrid zombie nazi's, and a wide assortment of landminds, bazookas, and blades only Punisher could healm. There's also a great speech from the ghastly Hellsgard, further explaining his machinations and desires for FrankenCastle's termination. Simply put, this penultimate issue of Remender's first supernatural Pun arc proves as exciting as any other.

4/5 Bags&Boards - Not as pretty as last issue, but a ton more fun.

1. The idea was stupid and is still stupid. It would have worked better with an original character. It fits poorly on Frank.

2. The execution has been crap. This is up there with Red Hulk in how bad it is.

3. The art has been fairly bad as well. The only thing that keeps me from raging about each irritatingly bad issue issue in and issue out is that I download it, so no money lost equals less irritation overall from me.

4. Many still laugh derisively at this series since it's bad and Marvel should feel bad for putting this out there.

I took issue with that part of the review, among other things, in case you're wondering.

I absolutely love this book. Good for Remender for sticking to his...um...guns with Franken-Castle and now the book drops Punisher from its title to end all confusion. I was supposed to review this issue for comicsbulletin.com but pulled in with only 2 reviews late, so I'll just say that this was one HELL of a fight between Franky and Hellsgard. It's really epic. But, while Tony Moore's art is phenomenal, admittingly, it can be difficult to actually see what's going on with all the mechanical limbs swining around between the two demonic warriors. And as usual, Remender writes subtlety so beautifully. Some of his one-liners are just great.

4/5 Permanent Franken Castle Haters - My favorite book that everyone else hates! In a huge week, perhaps Marvel Book of the Week, too.
