Out of everyone in the Marvel Universe who would be the best to start killing everyone else? The Punisher is the logical choice and thankfully they do great things starting off this series.
The story revolves around a plague that has turned most of the world into cannibalistic zombies for the most part. The Punisher though was able to become immune to it and therefore goes around killing the Marvel Universe that have turned into raging psychopaths. Seeing the likes of Spider Man eating the face of another man is a sight to say I have to say. The comic carries the gritty feel that one would expect from a post apocalyptic world where The Punisher is your only hero.
What really helps this story though is how natural it feels. You really get the feeling that going around just killing everyone for The Punisher would be something he wouldn’t mind doing and would be good at. Even with the virus it never seems to affect his mindset. He still goes around and kills anyone who he deems as bad.
I’m hoping down the line for the series though they do more a back story into the virus itself as well as more mindless killing of beloved heroes. So far though it’s worth the read.
