THE SCOOP: The series of 2000 is collected in one volume!
THE STORY: Nominated for just about every Wizard Fan Award there is, the 12-part saga by the twisted team of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon brought back Frank Castle with a vengeance. Uzis, knives, flamethrowers, the Empire State Building... whatever it takes to put the scum of Manhattan down, the Punisher will use it. The scourge of the underworld returns to clean up the city-inspiring three insane vigilantes to imitate him-and raising the ire of the dreaded (and hysterical) Ma Gnucci.
THE BUZZ: "PUNISHER is proving to be an excellent examination of extreme characters, but more importantly, it's just a bloody mess of fun." -Don MacPherson, Comics Newsarama
