5.0 out of 5 stars The Count Of Monte Cristo Of Comic Books Aug. 4 2001
I've been a fan of this particular Punisher series since I bought the second issue of it when I was 7 years old. I can still remember seeing Frank on the cover with his machine gun and thinking to myself, "Whoah he looks just like Rambo!".
Now, all of these years later, I consider this work to be the single finest Marvel mini-series; yes, even better than anything involving Wolverine, X-Men, or my beloved Spider-Man.
Circle of Blood is a complete story within itself, and would be the perfect comic to turn into a movie. The artwork is fantastic, and the dialogue is less cheesy than you normally find in 80's comics. There are none of the annoying references to every other comic book in the Marvel Universe (I was one of those kids that really hated that), and there are -- thankfully -- no appearances by other Marvel characters. These factors, combined with the story's grittiness and adult nature, make it one of the more original and realistic of anything Marvel's done. Frank's enemies in this book are not flamboyant villains, but just the kind of thugs you would expect in a mob movie. Frank's not out to save the world, but to get revenge upon and eliminate those who caused him so much grief. Oh, and did I mention? Frank isn't afraid to kill.
The story follows Frank from his family's murder, through prison, war with the mob, and ultimately to one of the most satisfying endings you could possibly imagine finding in a Marvel mini-series. I must stress again how delightful it is to be able to read this story over and over and not be made to feel like a goof because you missed a particular issue of this or that comic, or to have the entire credibility of a scene shot down by an appearance of a wise-cracking super-hero in tights.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best comic miniseries July 30 2002
By A Customer
In the 1980's marvel refused to make a miniseries on the punisher (who first appeared in amazing spiderman) because he was too violent and often killed the bad guys. When artist mike zeck threatened to leave marvel however marvel decided to allow the miniseries to be made. In the first 3 hours the first comic was in newstands, it completely sold out. It was an instant hit. Marvel suddenly decided to embrase the punisher as a character. soon the punisher gets his own long term series called "the punisher" the "punisher war journal" and countless others as well as a movie called the punisher. This miniseries was in my opinion the most influential comic that came from the 80's. This graphic novel is very well written and clever. If you give it a chance you'd like it

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost good Nov. 27 2003
By Kain
This story would have been sooo good if it weren't for the two last issues. The brain washing is what killed it for me. I have seen to many stories where some group of people are trying to create a race of super soldiers. It took away the reality feel to it that the book has half the time. And the Punisher was too caring. He was skocked when he saw a little girl get shot or couldn't believe that angel betrayed him.
I am so glad that Ennis gives a better and more meaner and more colder Punisher.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great story May 26 2004
This is a great reprint of the first Punisher mini-series. Fair warning though, this mini-series is also included in the Essential Punisher collection (albeit in black and white), which is cheaper and has a lot more stories in it. If color doesn't matter to you, then you might want to go that route.

By Raven
Thank god the Punisher isn't written like this any more. This Punisher is too caring and far too weak!!!! And you know people Mike Zack is never coming back to do more Punisher work. He had his run and it's OVER.
