If Punisher has a recurrent story all these years... well... maybe it's him in prison and most of them are really good stories and Nathan Edmondson built a very solid story.
After the events of last issue, Black Widow "delivered" or "dropped" the Punisher in a south american prison.
Nathan Edmondson built a strong story where we can see Frank trying to take info as much as he can about the inmates and through his inner monologue we can see what he thinks about criminals in jail, there is nothing new in here but it was great to see that Frank's psych is still untouched.
After a few issues without seeing his supporting cast it was good to see Officer Sam Stone and Lou, both of them are still in L.A. and dealing in their own ways to the increasing crime rating but both are in trouble...
After a few issues that Frank's mission seemed to be in stand-by it got back in the right track and he seems really focused on it.
This issue isn't action packed but i think Edmondson is building a strong root for this upcoming arc and it doesn't seem like a slow burn at all, and we got a plus he add a new player to this run, the second sun came to L.A. to finish what his brother couldn't do it.
I really hope that this new villain can bring new things to the table and this issue feels like a new beggining for the character, so for everyone who wants a jumping point, now it's the chance.
Mitch Gerads continues to shine in this book, his artwork is consistent and he did a really cool fight between Frank and some inmates. As always he nailed it and his contribute make this book even better issue by issue.
