PUNISHER #1

MARVEL COMICS
(W) Matthew Rosenberg (A) Szymon Kudranski (CA) Greg Smallwood

Punisher no longer has the War Machine armor, but he retained his newly acquired taste for big game, and he's hungry for more. However, the paths to such perilous pursuits are fraught with dangers bigger than any Frank has faced before, and this lone wolf could use otherworldly help on his way up to the world stage.
