    Un Cómic Más

    This fast-paced chapter is told from the point of view of various heroes terrified and worried about what Frank has become. [Art] continues to be divided into two 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

    Readers, Punisher #9 is extremely well-written and perfectly crafted to unveil new and specific twists and turns that will keep fans on the edge of their seats. The time and preparation in constructing a series like this are evident. From researching Frank’s comic book past in detail to connecting the feelings of actual war veterans, Aaron’s taken the Punisher and carved out one of the best books Marvel has to offer right now. And frankly, one of the best he’s written since his Conan and Thor run. The pacing is perfect and mixed beautifully with the monologuing over the relentless action cluttering each page of this issue. I almost recommend reading Punisher #9 separately from looking at the art first, then just looking at the art alone, and concluding by re-reading it all together. It may make for a better understanding and a more powerful issue. Lastly, don’t overlook the intricate detail with the art as well as the vibrant colors that place this story in such a great package. I truly couldn’t recommend Punisher #9 more or this entire series. It may appear too late to join in now. However, if you can get the Punisher trade for the first 6 issues and ask your LCS for the last three, you’ll be in business.

    I can finally see the shape of Punisher as the High Priestess recounts past flashbacks to entirely rewrite the Punisher mythos as a supervillain's origin story. It is an astounding upending of the table, but the story doesn't seek to retcon Frank Castle so much as it wants to redraft the character from ground one. Regardless of how fans may feel, it's an astonishingly entertaining affair as nuance is dropped to present Frank Castle the Superhuman Killing God-Machine. (...) Aaron, Saiz, and Azaceta may not have made a better mousetrap, but they've definitely delivered the most engaging and enjoyable Punisher in many, many years.
