It’s been a few years since the Punisher has had a series at Marvel. The character was generally listless post Secret Empire where the character for a while was picking up the pieces and killing members of Hydra attempting to redeem himself and then kind of fell of the radar. There have been questions and debates since as to where Marvel should take the character considering his being co-opted by the far right and his symbol becoming one of white supremacy and racism. Well, it looks like Marvel is dumping a lot of the characters past to move away from that entirely.
A new 13-issue, prestige format limited series is coming from writer Jason Aaron, artists Jesús Saiz and Paul Azaceta, and colorist Dave Stewart. Saiz will handle the present day parts of the comic while Azaceta handles flashbacks.
Frank Castle is taking over The Hand and is now “The King of Killers” serving The Beast. That means a new job and a new costume to go with it. The series will focus on unrevealed secrets about his past and leads to something bigger on the horizon.
The Punisher #1 is coming March 2022.

It’s a new week and we’ve got lots on tap coming your way from interviews, reviews, and more! While you wait for things to get rolling, here’s some comic news and reviews from around the web in our morning roundup.
iO9 – The Punisher’s Logo Can’t Be Turned Into a Symbol for Black Lives Matter or Real World Justice – Agree? Disagree?
GamesRadar – DC and Diamond extend working relationship temporarily – Bets this gets resolved?
The Punisher skull logo has been adopted by the police and their supporters despite the character being a vigilante working outside of the law. The extrajudicial handling of crime seems to be the draw with the symbol blended with the “Blue Lives Matter” coloring and displayed in support. The symbol has been seen sported by police recently and has a long history within the police. Disney and Marvel have done nothing to curtail the use of the symbol as it’s been coopted and proliferated online and in the real world.
The Punisher debuted in 1974 and was created by Gerry Conway, John Romita, Sr., and Ross Andru. The character debuted as a villain targeting Spider-Man and over the years has generally evolved into an anti-hero though his exact depiction has varied. Conway has been vocal against the use of the symbol by the police and others and is currently attempting to take the symbol back.
For too long, symbols associated with a character I co-created have been co-opted by forces of oppression and to intimidate black Americans. This character and symbol was never intended as a symbol of oppression. This is a symbol of a systematic failure of equal justice. It’s time to claim this symbol for the cause of equal justice and Black Lives Matter.
Currently, over $24,000 has been raised for the organiztion through four designs and over 1,800 shirts sold.
You can get an awesome shirt now for a good cause and help “take back” the Punisher from those who clearly don’t understand the character.
Six comics currently await you on comiXology. The comics feature one new DC Comics DC Digital First while Marvel delivers five digital collections of previously released series.
You can get them all here or check out the individual releases below!
