Great take on the Punisher by Gregg Hurwitz. Some interior thought of the Punisher, which is rare for him - but in true Punisher style, Hurwitz's Mr. Castle only does it for a page or two each time.

Just the real deal. I coincidentally picked this and The Survivor, and it is great as well!

There are some intense fighting scenes in this arc. It's not Ennis-level writing, but it's far from bad. The artwork is gritty and dark, very fitting for the story. Frank does more by crippling the drug operation than just get rid of the product and dealers, he also teaches the villagers to stand up for themselves.

Frank is approched by a man who lives in a Mexican village. A drug operation is kidnapping the young women from the village and bringing them back dead. (view spoiler)

This story started off pretty well. It was apparent that Ennis wasn't writing it anymore though. The artwork is good until it comes to points that are very important. It becomes frustrating and confusing.

(Spoilers ahead)

What the hell was happening when Jigsaw tells the two men to prepare for bloodshed? They obviously walk out through the door in the background, leaving the door open apparently. Then, Jigsaw goes up against the wall by the door, but the door is closed now. Did he close it? And ho

While this is a decent enough story, I'm not necessarily sure it's a Punisher story. It comes across more as noir with superhero leanings, a tough detective story where the detective is comically tough and too accurate in his guesswork.

The most interesting part is when Frank appears to have accidentally killed a little girl. It plays perfectly into the history of the character, but the logistics are all off. Unbeknownst to Frank, the girl was already dead and propped behind a mirror that he sho

'How dangerous can one man be?!' The Punisher gets called in to help a small Mexican town where young girls and ladies are mysteriously abducted and returned...mutilated and dead.

The action is well-paced with some spectacular set pieces. I found the writing to accurately capture Frank Castle's laconic inner monologue and turmoil. The art is gritty and realistic, almost having an 80's sensibility to it.

Highly recommend for Punisher fans and newbies alike.

Life for THE PUNISHER after Garth Ennis is a bit of a mixed bag, with Marvel turning to hip "name" crime writers to carry the title. Hurwitz turns in a capable but not especially memorable tale with Frank Castle venturing to a part of Mexico that feels a lot like a Hollywood version of Ciudad Juarez. The appeal of this storyline is increased by the dark and moody stylized drawings of Lawrence Campbell--not an artist I knew, but one I'll keep an eye out for.

This is amazingly written and drawn, the story is well thought out and put together. I really respect that the story follows a timeline and does not change to allow things in. Once I picked the first issue up I could not put it back down, I had to keep reading. This was time well spent and I recommend this series to all comic book fans and non fans.

Frank Castle gets a summons south of the border, investigating the disappearance of a town's young girls. Coming upon a drug ring, Castle must put aside self-doubt to bust the trade and come face-to-face with one of his oldest enemies - Jigsaw.

A good catch after the Ennis run with the Punisher with moody and gritty art. But what I most liked with this was the inner dialogue of the Punisher. That was really good.
But why are the Annuals (one of them was chucked here with the main storyline) always bad?

Another crazy volume. These series are just weird and dark and weird again. And yet they make interesting reads.

If this is an indication of the quality of this series now that Ennis is no longer writing it, then I think I'm going to bother with it. This was a pretty mediocre Punisher tale.

A pretty durn good Punisher book for the most part, but at times it was a little hard to "read" the artwork.

De longe o pior encadernado Justiceiro MAX lançado pela Panini no Brasil até o momento. A história é ruim e arte péssima, em muitos quadros não pude entender o que acontecia.

This was something amazing. It's nice to know someone other than Ennis can write gritty, intriguing violence. The art work was something to get used to, but a great story.

Huge character error here, in which Hurwitz imagines Frank Castle wanting to off himself because he accidentally killed a child.

I think about this story every day. It's the perfect intro into the Punisher Max line and it was so well done. Astonishing.
