Finally our monthly Punisher "fix" is back at a high speed!
Yes, speed is the main constant in this issue. Most of the action with the Punisher and his little passenger Juniper is in the van. Great chase scenes that looked like it was taken from the Mad Max with a truck following Castle's van, fully decorated with spikes and a bunch of crazies in it led by Face.
Juniper turns out to be a great help to Frank at some point during the chase that practically ended it.
DEA is more active in this issue. Agent Ortiz and Henderson are getting closer to Frank and things get crazy in the last pages of this comic book.
Olaf appears in this issue and he seems to have a second agenda more important than just the EMC drugs.
Becky Cloonan once again keep high standards for this issue. There isn't too much plot development but it was solid action.
We got a few more words changed with Frank and Juniper and Becky explored in the right way the few glimpses of humanity that Frank have left.
Liked how things went crazy for the DEA agents a plus for entertainment and another one to see that things are getting personal.
Steve Dillon was amazing. The chase scenes, the action, the kills and a bit of humor to the mix and we got an explosion of entertainment.
Dillon continues to show us a good artwork with the help of Frank Martin who emphasize his great colors into Dillon's artwork, Frank Martin turned the explosions into epic levels. Really good work of these two in this book.
Declan Shalvey continues to show his great artwork in the cover of this book. It describes perfectly how this book was and ended. Declan was in perfectly sync with Dillon and Cloonan.
Jake G Thomas (editor) really joined an amazing creative team for this book, let's hope it continues forever. It's been great ride and so much fun that i haven't felt in a Punisher comic for some time now.
OVERALL RATE: 8 OUT OF 10
