Marvel Comics 04.04-11 | Dark Tower #3, Punisher: War Journal #6

punnyheaderWith Captain America dead, who will take up the mantle? Would you believe the Punisher? Plus, a look at the next issue of Marvel's smash-hit adaptation of Steven King's Dark Tower series.

 

A New Captain America in Punisher War Journal

 

 

 

        Captain America is dead.  Long live…the new Captain America!?!?

 

        Frank Castle is adopting a whole new patriotic costume in the pages of Punisher War Journal as this buzz-worthy title is sure to turn heads in the coming months.  Punisher War Journal #7 will see the Punisher in his new costume taking on the old Captain America villain Hate-Monger and will feature 50/50 covers by Young Guns Reloaded artist Ariel Olivetti – one with the classic costume and one with his new star-spangled threads.

 

        The creative team behind Punisher War Journal have been praised for bringing Frank back to the mainstream Marvel Universe in nothing but thoroughly entertaining stories.  Writer Matt Fraction, the writer quickly making a name for himself with Punisher War Journal and co-writing the smash-hit The Immortal Iron Fist with Ed Brubaker, and Ariel Olivetti, the bourgeoning artistic talent who was recently named one of the Young Guns Reloaded, have put the Punisher back in the spotlight and super-villains back into the Punisher's crosshairs.

 

Steven G. Saunders of SilverBulletComicBooks.com says, "This is solid Punisher, with Matt Fraction treating the character of Frank Castle with the love and respect he deserves…Coupled with the great art, I see great things for this title in the future."

 

        A.C. Hall of PaperbackReader.com says "Fraction has an incredible understanding of The Punisher and writes him brilliantly."

 

The first two issues of Punisher War Journal have sold out and gone back to press as this new ongoing title continues to heat up. And things are about to go nova when Frank adopts a new costume which may signal the arrival of a new Captain America.  You've been warned – Punisher War Journal is a book to watch in the coming months.
