Rusty’s Comic Reading List 2016 | September 24, 2016

punisher-wbf

I have never been a big fan of the Punisher. Fundamentally, I didn’t like that Marvel made him out to be a hero. He was created as a villain. He is a murderer, straight up.

So why do I like Garth Ennis’ take? Because he doesn’t make a stand one way or the other on the right or wrong of what Castle does as the Punisher. It just is.

Despite not liking the Punisher as a hero, I read and enjoy this the same way I can watch and enjoy Reservoir Dogs… or reading the Ostrander Suicide Squad. They don’t have to be heroes to be interesting.

This is a re-read. I just got the second volume.
