The only way I could yearn for this series more is if its full title was:Space: Punisher 2099
Or simply Sad Face Punisher… In Space.
At the risk of being in the minority, I don’t really like “space” books. This is not to say I don’t like adventures beyond the stars. I just don’t like adventures beyond the stars with, say, Spider-Man. It gets even worse when it’s a “street level” character like Batman, Daredevil or The Punisher.
It’s hard enough to take the more super-heroic version of the Punisher that runs around the Marvel Universe seriously. I don’t know if it’s the white boot/glove combo or the fact he trolls around in a van, but he’s a bit of a sore thumb and it’s kind of difficult to imagine the Captain America’s of the world would allow him to continue unimpeded.
But there he is.
So to take the street-levelist of the street level characters in the Marvel Universe a put him even more out of his depth seems like a bad idea to me. But then again, that might just be what the Punisher needs.
After all, I enjoyed the hell out of Frankencastle.
