Laimed tale superstar Garth Ennis reveals the never before told story of the horrors Castle was forced to face to come home fromVietnam alive ending in a shocking twist that will forever change how readers see Marvel Comics' most famous urban vigilante Collecting BORN To be honest every adult rated Punisher book written by Garth Ennis is a four or five star book but this is the only one on here and it d get pretty boring if I added every single one anyway Just get the ones labelled Punisher MAX and you ll be fine So yes here Ennis takes a character too often written as a simplistic gun toting tough guy and turns him into a sad case study of the effect of years of massive violence on a human being But don t worry there is also plenty of horrific yet cathartic bloodshed Highly recommended all of it

summary The Punisher MAX

The Punisher MAX

Ight against the enemy With dwindling reserves Castle must stand against an impending Viet Cong attack that threatens to wipe out the entire American platoon To survive the battle what grim decision must he make that will forever alter the course of his life In this acc Within the host of comics I ve imbibed over the past few years it is those of writer maestro Garth Ennis and his masterful work on Marvel s Punisher that have earned a special place in my heart Randomly enough in spite of my affection for this character and Ennis artistic rejuvenation of such I was unable to finish this an attempted read a while ago Eually random it landed on the docket again so a second chance was grantedImbued with the foresight and fortitude of a Roman Empire Era Centurion our blood lusted Frank Castle has yet to become his future alter ego The Punisher Acting as a fade into his world of such Ennis has done a stellar job to realistically and faithfully replicate the internecine conflict known monomously as Vietnam Falling short of the Max brand an era of maximum instability across all bands and fibers in Americans in nam should have been depicted with a far higher level of disbelief and revolutionary exchange befitting of the era Favoring an uneven application of artistic merit and themerey Castle s most recent origin story is enjoyable at the unseen levelAs much as I became cognizant of this during the final 4th issue I found myself reading uickly and browsing the above average sized panels in an even faster fashion In fact the I thought about it the vast majority is just flip book violence with an extra heaping helping of blood not to much guts here If the violence is excised a waxingly nostalgic hymn to The Republic at the beginning and a seemingly Faustian deal with an unknown at the end shine as properly the best aspects of the comicWhere as the action just reestablishes what we know already and most of the dialogue is forgettable than anything the intro and outro remain only really interesting aspects here Respectfully and eruditely Ennis was able to write a fully believable yet fully fictious hymn of an eually fictious soldier in Vietnam Lionizing his culture and enshrining his country s hubris this well done arrangement well segues the historical developments that definitely did work on that daisy eyed perspectiveThe other side has nothing to do with rosy glasses but something Faustain perhaps Greek tragedy than anything In order to sate his undying blood lust Frank Castle makes an invisible pact with an unseen unknown like a muse to continue his Martian ways The Oedipus like plot twist tied in makes for a memorable ending
