Frank Castle is back after a brief hiatus thanks to the All-New Marvel NOW! initiative going down at Marvel. This time the vengeful anti-hero will be brought to life by Nathan Edmondson and Mitch Gerads. The Punisher finds himself caught up with drug dealers in the City of Angels. Check out the preview pages below and look for the issue in shops on February 5th, 2014.
This February, Frank Castle’s one-man-war on crime continues in an all-new THE PUNISHER #1 – from the explosive creative team of Nathan Edmondson and Mitch Gerads! For years, the Punisher has called New York City his home – keeping a watchful eye on the city through the sight of a gun. But when a lead on a major source of drugs, weapons, and more leads Frank out west – he sets his sights on Los Angeles. And the City of Angels isn’t ready for a devil like the Punisher! But not everything is as it appears, and Frank will soon find himself toe-to-toe with a highly trained military strike force known only as the 131! Who are the mysterious 131? And why are they out for the Punisher’s head? Find out when the high-octane new series kicks off this February in THE PUNISHER #1!
