Official Press Release

When Norman Osborn is the most powerful man in the Marvel Universe, that’s bad for everyone, including Frank Castle (AKA The Punisher). So what happens when The Punisher decides to take matters into his own hands? An unusual bodyguard, working in collusion with Norman Osborn, interrupts the plan! After an explosive first issue, Marvel is pleased to announce that Punisher #1 by Rick Remender and Jerome Opena has sold out at Diamond and will be going back to print with Punisher #1 Second Printing Variant. This issue comes wrapped in an all-new cover featuring Opena’s stunning interior art. Fans and critics agree-- the next chapter of Frank Castle’s life is one to keep an eye on!

Dan Phillips at IGN.com says: “…the terse voice-over captions that Remender supplies are at times quite amusing and do a strong job of capturing Frank's personality…Remender kept me at the edge of my seat, and artist Jerome Opena did a good job capturing the energy of this chase”

Kevin Powers ComicsBulletin.com raves, “Remender is off to a great start and most certainly has an excellent grasp of the character and the way he operates.”

“A really good read” says James Hunt of ComicBookResources.Com

After his battle with the Golden Guardian of Good, The Sentry, Frank was left battered and bruised but with the aid of a new mystery ally. Will Frank try to go after Norman again? Is there more punishment coming to The Punisher? Well to find out, and to get in on this brand new arc, head on out and pick up Punisher #1 Second Printing Variant!
