Inspired by Netflix’s recent Punisher show, we’ve picked up Vol 9 of Marvel’s THE PUNISHER by podcast favorite Greg Rucka and Marco Checchetto. This volume introduces the character of Rachel Cole-Alves, a woman after Frank Castle’s own mission.
After her entire family is gunned down at her wedding reception, Rachel Alves (she took her husband’s name) has some decisions to make about what to do next with her life. Meanwhile, we see the effects the Punisher has on reporters, cops, and the city at large as he moves through New York more like an unstoppable force of nature than a solitary person. Also, he fights a giant bird.
Pack the bandages and the bullets, kids, it’s time to talk about THE PUNISHER!
