Review: Punisher Kill Krew #1

Punisher Kill Krew #1

During the War of the Realms, Frank Castle made a promise of vengeance, and Frank Castle keeps his promises. Punisher Kill Krew #1 kicks off a direct follow up to the War of the Realms.

Written by Gerry Duggan, Punisher Kill Krew #1 is a smart start to a miniseries delivering just enough information for new readers to enjoy it. It also has a “quest” aspect of it that blends the Punisher’s aesthetic with a Dungeons & Dragons like adventure. That includes mission creep and an off the rails aspect to it all.

When I head about the comic, I admit I had a bad flashback to the Punisher’s avenging angel days. The character and “fantasy” didn’t quite click for me. Duggan does some smart things to make the genres work. There’s a focus on revenge, a regular motif for the Punisher. He’s out to kill someone who hurt another person. It just so happens the being is a troll. Then there’s the addition of orphaned kids. This adds some heart to the story. We see Frank’s reaction to them and his need to help. It humanizes him a bit and shifts the story from a straight murder spree.

The art by Juan Ferreyra, with lettering by Cory Petit, also helps. There’s a blend of the mystical and cold guns that just works. It’s not odd to see the Punisher don a Viking like helmet and use a machine gun. It doesn’t look weird when he tosses a grenade into a killer tree. It all flows in a way that has some humor about it and keeps aspects of the grounded Punisher and fantasy world. The art also creates an off-the-rails campaign aspect to it, mainly due to some humorous moments.

Punisher Kill Krew #1 works in a way because it both does and doesn’t take itself too seriously. There’s something fun about it all as it mixes bullets and swords. What shouldn’t work not only does but has me excited to see what comes next.

Review: Absolute Carnage: Scream #1

Absolute Carnage: Scream #1

So far, I’ve enjoyed Absolute Carnage. It’s an event that’s done a fine balance into the horror/gore genre without completely crossing a line. It also has been fairly friendly to new readers. Absolute Carnage: Scream #1 continues that balance but tips a bit too much into unfriendly for new readers.

Written by Cullen Bunn, the comic sees the return of Scream, one of the rainbow of symbiotes that exist. The comic does an excellent job of delivering that horror tinge to what is a superhero story at its core. The resurrection of Scream has a nice creepy factor to it. But, the comic relies a bit much on Scream’s past to really be enjoyable.

The art by Gerardo Sandoval helps a bit. Absolute Carnage: Scream #1 has some twisted moments building off of the reader’s imagination. Victor Nava‘s ink, Erick Arciniega‘s color, and Cory Petit‘s lettering help deliver the chaotic nature of the issue. The resurrection scenes have a gruesome quality about them. The New York scenes have some solid panel work that emphasizes the hunt that’s going on. The art, like the other Absolute Carnage issues, is key at delivering the tone of it all.

The comic is good but not great. There’s a reliance on knowing two characters and without that, it lacks the punch to really sell the issue. Still, as it progresses the action will likely be the draw and hopefully more explained. Absolute Carnage: Scream #1 is an interesting piece of the bigger puzzle but doesn’t quite stand on its own yet.
