I just finished reading the latest issue of Garth Ennis' and Goran Parlovs Punisher series. Ah man, it blew me away. It's been a thrilling arc so far and it climaxes in this final, brutal showdown. In the end we see a bloody and beaten Frank Castle that's barely left alive. Not the stereotypical 'scratch on face' we generally see with a beaten hero, but a Punisher who's face is beaten to a pulp. Rarely do I read a comic where the level of violence actually makes me say "Jesus Christ!!!" out loud. I'm not really a fan of Ennis' 'The Boys', where he uses violence for violence's sake, or humour, whereas in this book, it's viceral and shocking, used for great dramatic effect.
Right, sorry for the rant. In summary; The Punisher. A great book. Read it now, before Ennis leaves the book.
Did a sketch to justify the rant.
