Pat Mills & Various - Punisher: Eternal War

(Marvel)

CRIME

During the 80s the Punisher was one of Marvel’s biggest stars, with multiple tiles and a 1989 movie (starring Dolph Lundgren). In Eternal War we get more tales from the archives as The Punisher hits his stride in terms of popularity. The main story (collecting Punisher War Journal 1-3, written by Carl Potts) is suitably vicious with a selection of shorter self-contained stories from the Punisher Summer Specials (written by Brit-comics royalty Pat Mills) as back up. It’s very 80s but has some excellent moments of black comedy and dark pathos.
