PC POST #279: The untold Punisher story "Rules of the Game"

The guy on the back is Baron Von Strucker
There are projects that stays on hold for a few years (Punisher: Nightmare & Punisher: The Trial of Punisher) and eventually are released and others that will never see the light of the day.

Rules of the Game is one of those stories, it was written by Gregory Wright and in the artwork the legendary Jim Lee.

Nick Fury and Punisher would form an uneasy alliance to take down the same enemy for different purposes one of the main reasons for this alliance was to create much tension as possible between Fury and Castle.
The bad guy was named Walter Maddox and he was the leader of the group called Blackhearts, he was a drug lord that negotiate with other "parties" hi-tech weapons stolen from S.H.I.E.L.D.


This project was never halted or even had a schedule. The problem was that Jim Lee was working in the X-Men titles and Marvel didn't want to make an ultimatum because he was a talented artist and Marvel needed him. Marvel gave him the time he needed to finish this project.

But unfortunately it was lost in time and i have no hope to see this 64 page graphic novel finished. 

Many Thanks for Gregory Wright who was kind enough to give us these informations about this project.
