Another Punisher freebie
Punisher: Dark Reign - Jerome Opeña,Rick Remender

I think they gave these away when they were starting to promote the new series?   Anyway, I finally got around to this, too, and I like it a lot.   It's a good, solid set up, and I know more, I think, about Dark Reign than Civil War.   Still, I don't see why the events have to seep into every single series...

 

I mean, I do, it's meant to get you to buy more series, and jump on board, but I do that for characters, and I'm not super into some of them, so that wasn't bond to work for me. 

 

Frank is running from a Superman type hero called Hyperion who's working for Osborne, who is evil but everyone thinks is doing good.   He's bleeding out, and barely makes it to his van, only for someone to tell him to run.   Can he make it to relative safety?

So, Civil War...
Civil War: Punisher War Journal (Punisher War Journal (2006-2009)) - Ariel Olivetti,Matt Fraction,Mike Deodato Jr.

I picked this up as a freebie a while back, and just haven't gotten around to this.   I don't know, guys.  I really don't.  I enjoyed a bunch of this, but Civil War became this big tangled mess, and while it's nice to see how The Punisher saved Spider-Man, it makes me aware of what a big mess these types of events are.  I have to read everything to really get everything, and I don't have the time, money or patience to read everything. 

 

So I liked it: how they tracked down Castle, how he fought back without killing law enforcement, but I don't like the reminder that this is part of a huge web that I'll never really get the full story on, so I knocked down one star.

Awesome beginning issue
Punisher: War Zone #1 (of 5) - Carmine Di Giandomenico,Greg Rucka

Frank Castle hits Spider-Man's limits.   Spider-Man is an Avenger who appeals to his teammates to do something permanent about The Punisher.   No, not kill him.   Captain America would never abide that, although Wolverine might if he thought Castle deserved to die.  

 

No, put him someplace that isn't just another prison that's basically like his buffet: all the murderers in there for him to kill!   I mean, until he escapes that is.  

 

What will the Avengers do?   That is, if they can find Castle...

Looks like a solid four-star series for now
Despicable Deadpool (2017-) #290 - Gerry Duggan,David López,Scott Koblish

Still not quite as good as the pervious series, but it's gotten to be a solid four stars for the two last issues I read, so if it settles into a four star series?   I'll be happy with that! 

 

Cable and Deadpool have to figure out how to get Cable's heart to Stryfe, and now they realize that Stryfe is cloning people.  Cable's clone is cloning people.   No, strike that, Cable's evil clone is cloning people. 

 

This is going to get really ugly really soon.   And I can't wait to see just how ugly it gets, and just ugly the solution is - and it's going to be ugly.   It's already gotten ugly, and no doubt will get far, far worse before it gets better.

Liking this more
Despicable Deadpool (2017-) #289 - Gerry Duggan,David López,Scott Koblish

I like this more and more with each issue.  So I think one was just a lot of set-up, including the darker tone for the darker series.   It just swung way darker to set up, and then got slightly lighter. 

 

The wackiness really kicked in with radioactive time-traveling, vampire dinosaurs.   Yeah.   It got super weird.   And I laughed so much!  

 

So, it's still lacking the true balance of emotive, and emotional storylines, thus the lack of that fifth star.   But it's also getting a lot funnier, even if it's not my favorite Deadpool storyline.   Still, four stars isn't bad.  I pay for the two-star Royals - although that's done with now - so I don't see myself dropping Deadpool.
