It’s time for Frank Castle to get in on World War Hulk, and he does it in Punisher War Journal #12. Marvel sent us a sneak peek of the extra-sized issue that teams Matt Fraction and Ariel Olivetti as the Punisher attempts to protect those left behind in the wake of the Hulk.

Pencils & Cover by ARIEL OLIVETTI

As Mung The Inconceivable, a member of Hulk’s Warbound, rampages through Manhattan, the Punisher and his allies put the alien in their crosshairs. But if the combined might of Marvel’s Mightiest Heroes couldn’t triumph over Hulk’s allies, does the Punisher stand any chance? His new arsenal provides the answer in Punisher War Journal #12, the book that Olivetti was born to draw!


Punisher War Journal #12 arrives October 10 for $3.99.

    Two things:

    1. Mung the Inconceivable is one of the all time great “alien conqueror” names.

    2. WHAT THE F@%# is the Punisher doing with a symbiote suit? And yes, I saw all those symbiotes attacking in New Avengers, but…WHAT THE F@%#? I’m not so much upset, it’s just…weird.

    Is that some sort of Symbiote suit Frank is wearing? Or just some kind of stolen Stark tech?

    That’s not the Hood, it’s Doctor Doom. The Hood’s weapon is Deathlok.

    Hmm…actually, ‘Mung the Inconceivable’ goes second only to ‘Bolphunga the Unrelenting, Son of Boff’.

    Really , Dr.Doom set it off ?, I thought that the hood was doing everything to make his play so as to become the new Kingpin of all villains. But if it is Doom then, Maan everyone seems to seriously Dislike New York in the marvel universe more than usual these days are they trying to destroy NY ? and maybe like everyone will live in L.A now ?
