I have that Punisher/Venom What If?

Vol 3 is the series with ponytail Punisher, right? I refused to ever get those. To be fair, I had stopped getting anything but Image at that point & even then that was dwindling. I think Vol 4 is Ennis. So, Marvel Knights is the gap between. I tried reading that once & it is unspeakably awful & insulting like Frankenpunisher. I recommend skipping it.

Vol 3 was Ennis, no ponytail I don't think.. ? I read a series with ponytail Punisher -- I don't think that was it but I could be wrong. They're starting to blur together.

I'm already 25 issues into Vol 4 and it's no different than Vol 3, and follows the same story. Not really sure why they segregated them, but it's the Marvel Knights one (whatever that is, first I've heard of it).

That miniseries where Frank is an agent of heaven is so fucking stupid :lol:

According to my download folders Vol 3 is the aftermath of the Nick Fury debacle and Frank is being forced to work with a mafia family. And he has a ponytail and is called Marvel Edge. This was still the 90's. After that there's a Marvel Knights series where we works for angels. Then Vol 4 is Ennis with Welcome Back Frank. Vol 5 is more of the same and does call itself Marvel Knights once again. I'm not sure it's cannon to the proper Marvel Universe due to what he does to Wolverine. Not labeled as a Volume are the Punisher Max series which are also not cannon, but rule. Then there's another Punisher Max separate from that which centers around Bullseye and Kingpin. Vol 6 is cannon as it involves Norman Osborne & the hood.

Marvel Knights was a separate imprint they started in the late 90s after they'd filed for bankruptcy. Basically they handed a few characters over to Joe Quesada and his company Event Comics and said, go crazy. One of the books that came out of it was Kevin Smith writing Daredevil, and there were a couple others. It went so well that Quesada became editor in chief at Marvel later, so it's kind of a big deal.

retails $120, paid $30 new from amazon. for all the fucking issues of Wizard I poured over in the early nineties it feels a bit fitting.

That cover looks like it's supposed to be a parody. CABLE'S FEET ARE HIDDEN. FUCK.

Seriously, I don't usually play the "let's still be mad about Rob Liefeld 25 years later" game, but holy fartin' shit.

I'm sure you're right about which volumes are which, but the way I have them labeled is Vol. 2 obviously the long running main title, War Journal, and War Zone; Vol. 3 is the Ennis shit with the introduction of Detective Soap heading up the Punisher Tash Force and ending with him as commissioner, Vol. 4 is just a continuation of that story, still Ennis, still entirely the same pros and cons as Vol. 3. Then Vol. 5 is just the Max books. The Avenging Angel Punisher was in there but not marked as a volume, and I didn't see any books featuring Green Goblin.

Vol 6 gets a little silly because Frank deals with a lot of super villains. Scrub villains, but still super powered. He does such a good job that he gets targeted in a stand alone called Dark Reign. This is post Civil War 1 & Skrull Invasion where Osborne becomes head of SHIELD. After that is Frankencastle. Lord help us all. Vol 7 is Ruckas run and I really liked that despite the Punisher looking like Big Boss from Metal Gear. Vol 8 is just alright with The Punisher in California. 9 is the current run.

Oh, after Civil War there's a Vol 2 of War Journal that has heavy inclusion with the Marvel Universe. He even becomes Captain America for like 2 issues. It's stupid & it's absolutely canon :( .

Saga - 7.5
Cool comics, but this is gonna make such bad TV someday.

Powers: Bureau & Powers v5 1-7: 8.5
Still one of my favorite titles. Always love the Gora stuff. Had no idea there was a TV series, just downloaded both seasons.

I watched the two seasons. The show means well, but the budget and the acting are both pathetic. Best part is there was a mildly attractive girl in the first season who got a lot hotter in the second and there's isn't a single scene where she isn't showing off her midriff.


Marvel needs a complete enema. Maybe the writers are uninspired to write tales for the Diversity Squad Disney/Marvel swapped out their icons for, but these new characters are lame as fuck. As are the stories. And why are there like 4 Spider-Men? And 4 Ironmen? And 2 Gwen Stacey's one of which is Deadpool? And why does it take only one issue of a comic for America to fall in line with Hydra who are specifically a sect of the German Nazi Party.

Is that the one Ron Lim did most of the art work for? With the Infinity Gauntlet and all that? Yeah, that was good. I hate new Silver Surfer. It's so precious and wants to be new age Doctor Who so bad, but Dan Slott blew his load with Superior Spiderman and pretty much sucks now.

best character artist.

and the writing. Englehart/Starlin/Marz...

I like the newish Surfer series. I dont know anything about Dr. Who, but seeing Mike Allred pencil one of my all time favorite funnybook characters...its fun, its light hearted, and it keeps me away from the rest of whatever Marvel has going on.

Supergod #1-5 - 8/10

Felt a little derivative of (or if you prefer, influenced by) Alan Moore, but that's really the only criticism I had of it, besides feeling too short and unfinished. I really like stories like this.
