    This saga improves with each installment, without a doubt imagine the maximum evolution of this character.

    It is divided into two different artistic visions, that of PAUL AZACETA and JESÚS SAIZ, the first is dedicated to flashbacks with highly textured and organic art while the second offers hyper-realistic art, with super violent sequences.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Punisher #10 levels up Frank Castle in a way well beyond what fans would have ever foreseen him becoming (again excluding Cosmic Ghost Rider). This dude is wicked, sadistic, and a serial killer turned up to eleven! Readers, there is no going back on who the Punisher is now. His entire history is changed. His motivations are forever changed. The foundation of what made him who he was has changed. And ultimately, I don’t know how it gets altered. This is some pretty heavy stuff that Aaron throws at readers. And like it or not, this appears to be the new Punisher.

    On a more positive note, this Punisher is almost unstoppable, which is what gets me excited for the next issue. Deep down in my heart, I want to root for the guy because he’s certainly “taking out the trash” on a larger scale across the globe. Any dastardly deviant organization or entity is going down at the “hands” of the Punisher. And with the way Aaron has leveled him up, I don’t think the Avengers could stop him. However, we will certainly see next week. Personally, I’m extremely curious to hear everyone else’s take on Aaron’s new Punisher.

    This volume of Punisher revels in melodrama and having made its perspective clear has called me to reevaluate earlier issues that celebrated the demon in Frank’s heart that drives him to make murdering any person deemed a criminal into a superpower; this comic plays with the same sturm und drang and indulgent imagery as something like Hannibal. That’s on full display in Punisher #10 as Frank’s death march through the worst people imaginable continues in gore-laden splashes. There’s no excusing the displays of indulgent carnage that conceptually feel better suited to the pages of 2000 A.D. and its satires of fascism and the Punisher’s path to the lowest tiers of Hell is lit up like an amusement park ride. The clarity of that approach makes the potential hedges that arrive in the issue’s final few pages, the windows to reset Frank Castle into a friendly neighborhood mass murderer again, more concerning. Punisher #10 is, for the most part, a whole lot of splatter-filled fun.

    Multiversity Comics

    “Punisher” #10 finds Frank Castle attempting to save his resurrected marriage while carrying out a global killing spree. It’s an ambitious, large-scale issue, containing emotional flashbacks, brutal violence, and the Punisher’s unbridled rage. Frank’s killing spree is interspersed with scenes from his past marriage. “Punisher” #10 creates a grim, brutal portrait of a man obsessed only with violence and murder. It’s a stark, effectively grim portrait of one of Marvel’s darkest characters. As Frank’s power grows he only becomes more untethered from what remains of his fragile humanity. The climatic final pages only begin to hint at an inflection point which must come in further issues. It’s strong storytelling from Jason Aaron backed up by some terrific art. (…) Overall, Punisher fans should be pleased as “Punisher” #10 covers new, blood-soaked ground while staying true to the character. It’s a rich and difficult narrative and it earns its heavyweight emotional punches. This harsh book won’t be for everyone but those who want darkness will get it.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    Punisher #10 has plenty of emotional weight and flying body parts, but the plot is practically at a standstill. If you enjoy Punisher comics simply for the violence, you may enjoy this one. For readers who want a story to back up the shock value, you may be disappointed.
