A LAZY look at Dark Reign The List: Punisher #1

Writer: Rick Remender. Pencils: John Romita Jr.

Score: 7 out of 10.

What I Thought(In 150 words or less!): Woooo, what a mess this was! Long story short, the Punisher pisses Norman "Marvel" Osborn off one time too many and Normie sends Daken to take care of Punisher... Permanently. Daken does just that, cutting Punisher into a dozen or so pieces. The fight scene between Daken and Punisher was intense, but the ending and upcoming Punisher as a zombie/monster storyline just seems ridiculous! "Franken-castle"? Really?!? Then again, it sounds SO bad that I might actually pick it up out of morbid curiosity, so what does that say about my taste?Ouch, that's going to take a MIGHTY big band-aid to fix...


  1. I'm sorry, but this comic looks cool. JR JR art and Frank Castle getting what he really deserves (how many people has he severely butchered, seriously?)has got me wanting to at least read this story.

  2. All right Kello! Thanks for the comments!

    Oh, I love Jr jr's work, always have, but the "death" scene was kind of overkill! You'd think simple decapitation would have been enough for Daken, but apparently not! Of course this is all leading into the "Franken-castle" story where the Punisher is going to be brought back as a... I guess a zombified monster is the best way I can put it...
