Punisher and his Amazing Friends
- Spoiler: show
I don't know who else has been reading Rosenberg's Punisher, but I have not been too impressed by it (though this volume is better than his previous one where Frank was War Machine). But this issue in particular is pretty cool because we get a team battle between Frank's team (who are unnamed, though I would call them Marvel Knights as they are kind of in that spirit) and Zemo's newest Thunderbolts. That's Punisher, Black Widow, Ghost Rider, Moon Knight, Night Thrasher, and Sargent Cole-Alves vs Zemo, Fixer, Ghost, Jigsaw, Moonstone, and Radioactive Man. It gives Kudranski the chance to draw some great fight scenes including a pretty rad big splash page. There is also a decent amount of humor involved as well as the action and overall this is one of the better issues. I actually would have liked to see more of these two groups showdown but next issue we are back to Punisher vs Zemo one-on-one, and hopefully now Frank can finish this once and for all.
I doubt there is any subtext meant, but interesting to see Zemo's incompetent men all wearing a bunch of UN uniforms...
