I haven't read a lot of Punisher, but after reading this collection, I'll be seeking out the rest of Garth Ennis' run on the title. 2 stories per volume, the first: The Slavers, is about an Eastern European Sex Slave ring and Frank really gets brutal with these ones, even for the Punisher. That being said, can't imagine some that deserve what happens more than these folks. There are some awesomely brutal fights/takedowns, and just great work altogether.

Hned po třetím booku zatím jednoznačně nejlepší Punisher v této sérii. Příběh je zajímavý a Castle je pořád stejně šáhlej creepy magor tak, jak to máme rádi - bez zábran. Kresba příhodně sedící, Fernandez je asi můj nejoblíbenější punisherovský kreslíř. A hlavně se mi líbí, jak krásně do sebe zapadají všechny dějové linky, které se zde odehrávají. Stejně jako pokaždé, když Ennisova Punishera čtu (výjimkou nudného 1. booku), i tady jsem si vzpomněl na to, proč je to jedna z mých nejoblíbenějších ...more

Another couple of good six-issue Punisher story arcs from Garth Ennis. The Slavers, about a gang of Moldovans who traffic kidnapped girls from Eastern Europe and force them into prostitution, was pretty mean and intense, and was a good vehicle to show Frank Castle's absolutely merciless side. Barracuda, on the other hand, was a little silly and over-the-top. It's about an Enron-like corporation that plans to black out portions of Florida to increase the value of their own stock. Meanwhile, "Barr ...more

I'm kind of liking the series so far. From the art style and story arcs. But it does have its tense moments. A lot. Another good but action packed volume.

Just a bit too much for me--just seemed like they wanted to use the f-bomb to prove how tough the characters were.

Vintage Punisher - Frank Castle takes on a ring of sex slavery and a group of greedy corporate hotshots with an evil plot. Plenty of entertainment throughout, although this is not for those that can't stomach the content of R rated movies

Finally got this one just a short while ago. I can't say enough good about Ennis' Punisher. Unless you are faint of heart or easily offended, just get your hands on pretty much ANY Punisher book written by Garth Ennis!

Ennis tries his hand at an Elmore Leonard-style story in this volume's second story, "Barracuda." Gorgeous art from Parlov on that one too.

Two cool story arcs in this one. Barracuda has to be one of my favorite Punisher stories in a long time. Very cool and worth reading.

Two solid stories, not as exciting as the previous two volumes but still good.

Ennis began his comic-writing career in 1989 with the series Troubled Souls. Appearing in the short-lived but critically-acclaimed British anthology Crisis and illustrated by McCrea, it told the story of a young, apolitical Protestant man caught up by fate in the violence of the Irish 'Troubles'. It spawned a sequel, For a Few Troubles More, a broad Belfast-based comedy featuring two supporting ch ...more
