Inside Pulse Review - "The books focus on independent, strong characters, in very tense and grounded real world situations. The sense of clawing for survival permeates these types of Rucka stories, and the action is quick and nasty. That’s the approach with The Punisher.

We open with a Marine Corps wedding, suddenly interrupted by an armed gang. A shootout ensues. Nearly everyone is massacred; the bride survives. Barely. We’re introduced to Detective Walter Bolt and Detecive Oscar Clemons, newly partnered cops assigned to the wedding shootout. Things aren’t as they seem as they investigate.

Detective Clemons isn’t as he seems either.

"As they follow their leads, someone is beating them to the important people. And as the murderous gang celebrates the victory in their petty gang rivalries, another gruesome massacre ensues.
The Punisher makes his presence known. Loudly and clearly"

"For a first issue, The Punisher #1 does most everything right. Rucka wastes no time re-establishing a character even the most casual fan can recite from heart. As usual, Rucka throws you into the deep end but you never feel over your head, piecing together the cast and details as you go. The script is heavy on action, and in fact several pages are straight silent shootings, so the book clips along at a speedy pace, and I often found myself going back to make sure I was visually interpreting happenings correctly. The script is solid, and while the opening salvo doesn’t truly have a hook, the tone of the series is sketched out very clearly, leaving you wanting more. Rucka paces his Punisher, and while fans of the more recent Punisher series might be taken aback, this title is all the better for it.

Marco Checchetto is an excellent parter for Rucka. He isn’t drawing a super hero book, he’s drawing a grounded crime series. Everything from the main characters to the backdrops to the most insignificant background character looks distinctly like a person on the street, their clothes lived in, their environments well worn and used. Checchetto has a wonderful eye for storytelling, with clever perspectives and cuts and focuses, complimenting Rucka’s verbal tension. When The Punisher goes into action, he gives us just enough of that bad ass indifference, the calculating balletic shootouts that make the Punisher such an iconic antihero. There’s a scene in the back up story, a glorious full page shot of him striding forward, casually pulling his piece – the eyes have a focused, executioner’s stare. This is iconography in the making."

    now thats a book I like. this current stpryline is a punisher year one sort of. some ppl arent happy though, that its making history seem like Frank knew his family would die, set them up, and blocked it out of his mind.
