Garth Ennis is pretty much THE Punisher author in my book. This ties in very nicely with his work in the Punisher Max series. ( )
  TysonAdams | Jun 20, 2017 |
This is the Punisher's origin story...well, at least one of them. Garth Ennis, who has written a great deal of gory but interesting stories about the character for the MAX line, takes a stab at Frank's origins. Instead of his lust for death/vengeance starting after his family is gunned down, however, it starts during his Vietnam years. Frank is well on his way to becoming a sociopath before this story even starts, and as this is part of the MAX line, there's a lot of gore and blood and some rape (the former two caused by Frank, but the latter is not). The MAX line is not something that I like to read frequently, but on stormy nights when I'm in a funk, it's a good world to escape to for a little while, and this is a good story. ( )

Interesting but not really something I would care to read again. ( )
