Greg Rucka, I love you. Man can't write a book worth a damn, but puts his hand on a comic script and becomes Raymond Chandler. Just like Mark Waid on Daredevil, Rucka is bringing the Punisher up out of the zany, silly, slapstick corner that other writers painted him into. A complete revamp of the character and series by Rucka could make this one of the best books Marvel has to offer. Especially with the way their top writers like Bendis and Aaron like to go overboard on their books, its nice to see that the non-powers are back in character.
As for the art- it is flawless. Perfectly fluid motion, cinematic paneling, perfect inks. Checchetto is a treasure. Where the hell has this man been?
