Punisher: Body Count Episode 130

Due to quarantine, I got back into video editing and made a promo for this episode. Check it out!

Introduction – Like every other content creator, Jake and I discuss how we are surviving the apocalypse.

[32:20] News – We discuss the collapse of the comics market, and some new upcoming guest appearances!

[49:00] Mail Call– We catch up on some mail we missed last episode (sorry) and talk about how we would handle writing Punisher 2099.

[1:17:25] Bullet Points – Jake and I finish off Punisher: Soviet #4 and #5, and continue reading Revenge of the Cosmic Ghost Rider #3 as Frank goes through a galactic mid-life crisis.

[1:53:52] Flashbacks – Due to fan demand, we check out Terror Inc. #6 and #7, a bittersweet story about an awesome character in a lackluster story.

[2:16:48] Discharge Papers – Jake and I get on the same page with High Rise Invasion and I recommend Bloodshot, because that is where we’re at in this contentless hellscape we now call earth.

Punisher: Body Count Episode 129b

Sorry for the lateness on this one, folks. Still, it’s one that’s worth the wait.

Introduction – Jake talks about his romantic night out and I discuss a new hobby that’s tearing my family apart.

[27:18] News – We talk about a cool Cosmic Ghost Rider figurine mod and then commentate the fight of the century: Archie vs. NotPunisher!

[56:46] Mail Call– We get a call from Blackstone and reminisce on our favorite show moments.

[1:14:15] Bullet Points – Jake and I cover Punisher: Soviet #3 and Revenge of the Cosmic Ghost Rider: Revengeance: Revelations #2. They are both ok.

[ 1:48:15] Flashbacks – We cover Spider-Man #32-34, where Spider-Man has no idea why a villain whose life was casually ruined by him would also be mad at him. Frank also probably bangs a secretary at the Daily Bugle.

[2:19:40] Discharge Papers – Jake recommends some anime and I change pace by watching a good movie called Knives Out and encourage you to do the same.

Punisher: Body Count Episode 127

logo 127

Ho ho ho it’s Punisher time.

Introduction – Jake is an award-winning Malifaux painter and I didn’t win much at all during my Las Vegas poker convention! I met a “neat” celebrity and had a minor breakdown afterwards, so that was cool.

[29:35] News – We discuss Punisher super-fan Ivo Santos’ appearance in the Punisher: Kill Krew series, rumors of a Punisher show continuation on Hulu, and a gun that’s never going to happen.

[46:25] Mail Call – 4chan scares the hell out of me and Jake and I what makes a Punisher comic “podcast gold.” Don’t forget to send us a voicemail at (347) 878-6474.

[1:02:40] Bullet Points – Good comics this time around:

  • Punisher Kill Krew #4-5: The Pantera concert that is this comes to a somber crescendo. Highly recommended, either in singles or for the trade.
  • Punisher 2099 #1, I really railed on this comic earlier, but Jake had a more even-handed take on it and makes some good points.
  • Savage Avengers #6, Frank and Conan go on a killer road trip.
  • Punisher: Soviet #1, Garth Ennis returns and it’s pretty good, if a bit “made-for-trades.”

[ 2:00:30] Flashbacks – We cover (muh real) Punisher 2099 #22-23, where Jake fights his son inside the internet, and we get introduced to a techno-goth villain that quotes Poe and is definitely not a virgin.

[2:20:30] Discharge Papers – Jake hurts himself with Dragonball GT and bashes one of the greatest animators of all time. I gush about the Mandolorian and recommend we return to the ancient ways of media viewing.

Punisher: Body Count Episode 126

First off, I apologize for how late this was. The episode was recorded in late October, but I got hit with a lot of serious professional and personal problems that stalled me on getting this out. I’m grateful for our wonderful audience and my co-host Jake’s patience with me as I worked through those issues (I’m fine now, don’t worry). We still plan to release a November episode this month, so keep an eye out for that. 

Introduction – Jake talks about Florida Woman and being the lord of manga and I talk about how my degenerate gambling has finally paid off.

[28:30] News – Punisher superfan Ivo Santos is going to be in a comic, and a new Punisher fan film is out! We also get some cool side stories on an ultimate haggler and the Punisher gun funded by the military.

[58:45] Mail Call – Blackstone asks us about the podcast’s holiday plans.

[1:05:00] Bullet Points – Good comics this time around:

  • Punisher Kill Krew #1-3, Gather the war goats and put on some Skynyrd, because we’re killin’ giants.
  • Punisher #15, for better or worse, it’s over.
  • Savage Avengers #5, Jake and I try to understand the brain biology of a Cthulhu creature.

[ 2:12:55 Flashbacks – We wrap up Paul Scheer’s Cosmic Ghost Rider Destroys Marvel History #5-6 and then have a brief talk about Frank being an imaginary war veteran in History of the Marvel Universe #2.

[3:07:35] Discharge Papers – We finally settle the Joker bet and Jake talks about the genius of Panty and Stocking plus other good animes.

Punisher: Body Count Episode 125

PBC125banner
Welcome to episode 125. A lot of blood, sweat, and re-takes were done to bring the semi-milestone to you. But it was all worth it, since this episode starred executive producer and longtime listener Arch Stanton, who brings his encyclopedic comic knowledge and much-needed normalcy to the table.

Introduction – Jake descends further into madness as he fights against his HOA constituents and tells America how to do sports. I learn my town has a meth problem and do my civic duty against my will.

[42:15] News – Garth Ennis gets back on the Punisher saddle, and at some point Arch tells us about this amazing toy.

Mail Call – Mercifully, there is none.

[1:02:00] Bullet Points – Here’s the comics we covered:

  • Punisher Annual #1, where Frank and Jameson go to space.
  • Punisher #12-14, where questions no one asked are answered, and fanservice ramps up to 11. Also, that Kingpin challenge is real.
  • Savage Avengers #3-4, WHERE IS MY FAMILY???

[ 2:43:30] Flashbacks – We continue with Paul Scheer’s Cosmic Ghost Rider Destroys Marvel History #3-4 and man these guys put in some work. We then do the jet ski meme comic Punisher: War Journal #19.

[3:45:55] Discharge Papers– First off, Arch’s audio cut out halfway through this segment, even though he was with us on Skype. I’ve shortened this segment down a bit due to that error. Anyway, Jake tell us why we need Samurai Cop in our lives and I explain why I want to be reincarnated into an anime girl who is a degenerate gambler.
