MISFITS PART 2 (of 2)

Stuart Clarke has found himself in the unlikely and unenviable position of becoming The Punisher's weapons-master, sidekick, and partner. He was once known as Rampage--when he combated the classic Los Angeles superteam The Champions. He was once a weapons designer for Sunset Bain--when he designed the War Machine armor. And he ended up a prisoner on The Raft--one that escaped during The Breakout. The two constants in his completely insane life have been his absolute brilliance, and his utter hatred of Tony Stark. And now, in his way, he too is a victim of Frank Castle...Take a look inside the life and times of this very special madman, courtesy of Matt Fraction (THE IMMORTAL IRON FIST, THE ORDER, CASANOVA) and Howard Chaykin (Wolverine, Howard Chakin's American Flagg!)

Garth Ennis concludes his seminal run on PUNISHER -- in style. Thirty-five years ago, the Fifth Cavalry disgorged their troops on an isolated Vietnamese hilltop and was met by a scene of utter devastation. The final body count ran to well over seven-hundred -- almost 200 hundred of them American soldiers. Standing alone amidst the carnage, a sole survivor: Captain Frank Castle, who years later would be known as the most fearsome vigilante to walk the Earth: The Punisher. Now the Punisher is about to face his stiffest test: He's hunted big game in his day, but none as big as this. Five men with unlimited resources. Men who'd put anything between themselves and the Punisher's bullet. Men who know exactly who he is...and how to fight him.

It's the second of three standalone stories, as CRIMINAL's new expanded format keeps the hits coming!

In previous arcs of Criminal we've met the man who killed him, and we met his only surviving son... now meet TEEG LAWLESS, thief, murderer, and all around bad mother-#@$%er. Fresh from two tours in Vietnam, Teeg arrives home in 1972 carrying the baggage of war, a drug habit, and an unpaid debt to a local mob boss that's now long overdue. *"Before the Living End"* tells how he goes about finding a way out of his problems and back into the life of crime.

And on top of this longer-than-usual length main story, CRIMINAL now features an *expanded* back-pages section, as well -- with articles by Brubaker and other top crime writers, from novelists to screenwriters to comic writers. These noir articles have become a popular piece of the CRIMINAL package, and are something that can only be found in the comics, not in any collections.

So don't miss out on this second *standalone* issue of the most acclaimed crime comic on the stands!

The world's favorite space-faring super hero in his continuing saga of anguish and adventure!

While Kirby tested the tensile strength of newsprint, Steve Ditko challenged readers to look through the pages of comic books and into new dimensions.

Written by MICHAEL AVON OEMING

Penciled by MEL RUBI

Cover by MICHAEL TURNER

The wise-cracking Wall-Crawler collides with the She-Devil with a Sword! Longtime Marvel readers know that these two legends have met before -- but that was just the warm-up! They may be from two different eras, but Spider-Man and Red Sonja have both faced the maniacal mage known as Kulan Gath. Now, the sadistic sorcerer makes a play for power that will once again bring these two famous heroes together -- but will it be as friends or foes? Writer Michael Avon Oeming (OMEGA FLIGHT, Red Sonja) and Mel Rubi (Red Sonja) -- plus cover artist Michael Turner (CIVIL WAR) -- answer the eternal question: What's better in a fight, the proportional strength and speed of a spider, or cold, hard steel and a chain-mail bikini? Collecting SPIDER-MAN/RED SONJA #1-5 and MARVEL TEAM-UP #79.
