Geez, what do you get for the man who would rather kill you? The Punisher must have some holiday spirit somewhere, because Marvel Comics has sent us a preview and info on the upcoming issue that will be in stores November 29th.
He’s making a list and he’s checking it twice. He knows if you’ve been naughty or nice. No, it’s not Jolly Saint Nick. It’s the deadly-serious Frank Castle, better known throughout the criminal underworld as the Punisher. Criminals are going to get more than a lump of coal in their stockings in this year’s Punisher: X-Mas Special. And it’s likely to be a bullet between the eyes.
When a little boy is murdered, the Punisher sets out to avenge those responsible for his death. Unfortunately, setting the naughty from the nice isn’t as easy as Santa makes it seem. Castle becomes embroiled in a murder mystery where a fugitive, a disgraced cop and even the boy’s grieving mother are all possible suspects. When the Punisher learns the truth behind the boy’s death, will he be able to pull the trigger?
This holiday season, writer Stuart Moore and artist C.P. Smith, the team behind the critically acclaimed Wolverine #41, are giving the gift of holiday homicides in Punisher: X-Mas Special.
