The Punisher has made his lethal return to the Marvel Universe amidst Civil War in the premiere issue of Punisher War Journal. The first issue has sold out at Diamond and Marvel is rushing back to press with a Civil War-style Second Printing Variant Cover by Young Guns Reloaded artist Ariel Olivetti.
Written by Matt Fraction and the recently dubbed Young Gun Olivetti, Punisher War Journal finds Frank Castle focusing his war on crime once again on super-powered villains.
Steven G. Saunders of SilverBulletComicBooks.com called the first issue, "a great book…This is solid Punisher, with Matt Fraction treating the character of Frank Castle with the love and respect he deserves."
