Punisher Mini Series

611 views • Dec 20, '17 • (5) Comments

I started watching the Netflix Punisher series a couple of weeks back and I am really enjoying it!  I would say this is my favorite Marvel run on Netflix to date.

When I started collecting comics, Punisher was my go-to.  I liked him because he didn't have super powers- just an angry bad-ass guy that was always seeking vengeance.  He had no qualms about wasting low-lifes and stealing their money to advance his vendetta.  He wasn't always trying to do the right thing like most super heroes, but his mission was compelling and interesting to watch- a guy that would employ violence and terror to fight crime is pretty wild!  Knowing that he was a mortal human also added to his appeal- this guy could actually die if he screwed up.  The story is much more interesting IMHO.

Watching the show got me sifting through my Punisher collection and I realized that my favorite vigilante of all time barely exists in my collection.... I used to have an almost complete run of the first 100 in the vol 1 series, but those all disappeared years ago.  I figured it was time to start building the collection again- other than ASM 129, Punisher comics are relatively cheap and accessible!
