Take a look at any "Worst" or "Insane" list involving either Marvel or The Punisher and you'll come across a strange time in Punisher's history when he had killed himself and come back to life with heavenly (READ: Super) powers given to him by an angel (who was responsible for the death of Frank Castle's family and him becoming The Punisher) so that both he and The Punisher could seek redemption in the eyes of Heaven. . .
Needless to say, this new status quo was NOT popular with the fans. Hell, even the much-maligned "Franken-Castle" arc lasted longer. Punisher as a heavenly avenger lasted exactly two 4 issue mini's and a handful of references here and there later on.
This is the second of those mini's and the last time the comics world would see The Punisher in undead heavenly avenger mode. I don't have all the issues of the mini that introduced this idea, but for what it's worth, from what I've read this is the better of the two.
