There is a new Punisher character in issue 1. The same character is on the cover of Issue 2.
TFAW has some ratios on issue 1.
Issue 1

Issue 2

KCC has issue 1 as the first appearance of Joe Garrison.

I have no idea if this character will take off. It will be interesting to see where this character goes.

haven’t seen any store exclusives strangely enough, i guess if they cant use foil their not interested


For a new Punisher, the rollout has been quiet. There is a one in twenty-five and a one in a hundred ratio.

1:100 is a virgin of open order cover, i skipped all ratios cause of that

Look at the 1:25 cover. They could could do better.

I have a feeling this is going to be the same old Marvel bs…

This “new” character will eventually become a villain and Frank will return…


cant disagree, bought 3 cover A and thats it. no faith in a new punisher

David Pepose is writing it and he’s does good work. That’s gives me a bit of optimism.

Good chance this is a flavor of the month with a large print run.

It just really isn’t that hard of a formula to work with.
There is a reason why movies such as John Wick, Taken, The Equalizer, upcoming “the bee keeper”, etc, etc do well and are popular.

Folks love them some anti-heroes. Just make Frank (or whoever they force into the role in this comic) kick some $#@ against characters who deserve it & do it in a manner that is inventive, graphic. Create some good villain &:side character development along the way.

Marvel just makes me shake my head sometimes… hopefully I’ll be pleasantly surprised.


They have tons of Spider-mans and Star Wars has tons of characters but no we can’t have two punishers. When I see the lack of hype and average art I start to think @monopolyjackson might be right. I guess we will find out eventually.

I could be wrong. Who knows…

The hype for Marvel in the past 4 years has been movie/tv driven. Now that the bubble has burst (I think), you see real demand…

Is he shooting bubblegum? Does that count as one of those trendy bubble gum covers?


I’d love to see the Punisher shooting Sneakers.
If I see another Sneaker cover (particularly Miles/Spider-boy), I’m going to blow my bubblegum top.

Sneaker covers are starting to become more annoying than Venom tongue covers

I was reading something not long ago for work pedophiles use bubble gum as a symbol.

A symbol for what? Do tell…

He looks like he has 2 bubble gum flavored whipped cream dispensers. Sending a message to children (to avoid crime) at birthday parties. "Sorry kids i couldn’t hire a giant dinosaur, so i could only hire the CANISTER!, or GUMISHER!, or FOAMISTER!, or SUDSDISPENSER!
