    Who drew that? Is that Tony Moore? I know he’s supposed to do an arc on the book soon.

    Oops. I see the signature now. It’s Tom Raney.

    I just hope that when this fails, they keep Frank Castle dead in 616 continuity. It is my opinion that the Punisher as a concept works best without the super-stuff.

    Something has always bothered me about modern Frankensteins, if you have the tech to make a metal skeleton that animates a corpse, why not just put the brain in a metal body? I get that whomever brought him back was probably low on cash, but still…

    Actually, if you put a brain in a robot body, presumably it would reject it unless you kept it continually pumped with anti-tissue-rejection drugs. And then it would eventually rust anyway.

    What ‘Clue’ is in this cover? Is that some sort of famous robot arm or something?
