Earlier this week, Marvel Comics began a new teaser image campaign to ramp up for Comic-Con International in San Diego 2012. Thus far, images depicting artifacts from the Marvel Universe -- including Thor's shattered hammer and Wolverine's burning claws and Captain America's bloodied shield and Iron Man's dented, bloody faceplate and Spider-Man facing the business end of a rifle -- were revealed with the words "This Is War" superimposed below the image.
Today, the publisher gives away a huge piece of the puzzle, revealing that come October, "Punisher War Zone" makes its return to the Marvel Universe. How Frank Castle's new series fits in with Greg Rucka and Marco Chechetto's current ongoing "Punisher" title remains to be seen, s is the anti-hero's apparent issue with the Avengers.
