What is the haps, my friends. We had a lot of fun with this episode, so I hope you enjoy it.
Introduction – Jacob has found success in overthrowing his HOA and is now a Youtube sensation. Is he getting too big for this show? Haha, no. I recall some great acting anecdotes as well.

[1:25:26] Bullet Points – We get as close as we will ever get to Civil War II with Choosing Sides #4 and Kingpin #3. We end the segment with Becky Cloonan’s Punisher #5. We get a little negative on it, but it’s a good series.
[2:08:56] Flashbacks – We finish the Punisher Eurohit story line with issues #67-70. Such a fun arc by Abnett and Lanning! We highly recommend it.

[56:45] Mail Call – Javier comes in on the clutch with a last-minute mail call question! It’s an angel Punisher question!
[1:00:47] Flashbacks – It’s late August so of course we go over a back to school special! This one is Punisher Back-To-School Special #4, and it’s got everything: Hallucinogens, Malaysian head hunters, and a lesson on why you shouldn’t kick hobos.
[1:44:20] Discharge Papers – Jake and I talk about the Back to the Future movies and I recommend Hand of God on Amazon Prime. We also talk about Suicide Squad for way too long. Sorry about that.
Here is a fun podcast to listen to while you play Pokemon GO between your Snapchat sessions, fam. We are cool people on this podcast.
Introduction – Jake talks about his upcoming Nashville trip and his slow metamorphosis into becoming his co-host. I discuss the glorious new shop that opened up in my town and my Pokemon GO adventures. Also, there’s a strip club in there somewhere.

[2:524:30] Discharge Papers – Jake recommends the Watchmen motion comic and is lukewarm to The Killing Joke animated feature. Meanwhile, I love The Admiral: Roaring Currents and think Hardcore Henry is a waste of time.

Here’s what that means: When you click that link or other recommendation links to buy something from TFAW’s site, we will get a percentage of the final order, which Jake and I will put toward the show. This will not increase your prices; it just helps us out and you get the comics, graphic novels, figurines, and general merch you wanted anyway!
[33:33] Mail Call – Jake and I get political and discuss what writers would not be a good fit for the Punisher.
