Show Notes after the Jump!
This week, it’s time to clean house on the Major Spoilers Podcast, by taking a look at the series featuring the pairing of Frank Castle, Garth Ennis, and Steve Dillon in The Punisher: Welcome Back, Frank.
The bestselling saga that defined one of the Marvel Universe’s most unique characters! Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon deliver a wild ride of innovative chaos, reinstating the Punisher as an unstoppable force dispensing his vigilante justice on the streets of New York City. But not everyone is happy to see him return: Two unlucky cops draw the unenviable task of capturing him, while the ruthless Ma Gnucci and her gang will stop at nothing to see him dead. The Punisher also must contend with nosy neighbors and the rise of three copycats – the Holy, Elite, and Mr. Payback – who want him to join their crime-cleansing force. Collecting Punisher (2000) #1-12.

Sometimes you walk away from a comic because your favorite author leaves it as well, that was the case for me, and Garth Ennis. I didn’t read anything Punisher because I didn’t think it would be as good as Ennis, boy was a I wrong.
