After reading all of Garth Ennis's Punisher-both Max, and the regular Marvel universe books, I thought I had seen it all-Frank Castle at his rip roaring best, with great art from Dillion that was straight out of his Preacher days, but then I cracked the spine on this wunderkind and was completely blown away! Remender is a modern master, and here he tells a story so fresh and fun it's impossible not to love! Plus, Tony Moore's Art is amazing and pushes this book into that elite 1 % of perfect comics! This is as good as it gets: a very fun story told by some of the best in the craft! Plus, they take a classic charachter and completely turn him on his head: keeping the element fans know and love bit doing something so creative and outrageous and it'll draw mouths agap and delight from even the staunchest purist!
Also: look at the price-- for under $50, this is a steal! This book collects, Living in Darkness, Punisher #1-5; Dead End, Punisher #6-10; Remote Control, Punisher Annual # 1, A Good Lie, Dark Reign: the List--Punisher #1; Franken-Castle, Punisher #11-21; Dark Wolverine #88-89; and ends with PUNISHER: In the Blood, #1-5! Nearly 30 comics! And with today's price of $4 a comic book- that would be $120 on newsstands! This is one beatiful, high quality, hard cover edition, all written by Rick Remender and worked on by artists including Tony Moore, Jerome Opeña, and John Romita, Jr.! If you are interested in Marvel or The Punisher, this is a great book- and a perfect place to start or continue your look into the life of vengeance made man! Plus, I keep my reviews spoiler free, but if I told you the twist and turns these pages contain- you'd probably respond, incredulous a that!
This is a must buy! Great book, great price, and proof that the Marvel omnibus is a comic reader's dream come true!!! I Seriously loved this book- and if you are reading this review, a bit on the edge or unsure, I urge you: BUY IT NOW!
