[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.

Got some cool announcements today so let’s get into it!

Introduction – Jake and I catch up with vacations and shopping around for car insurance.

[13:18] News – Jake and I scrape together some previews for Becky Cloonan’s upcoming Punisher series (coming out this May!) and we get into a weird argument about Danny Cooksey. We also announce the winner to our Spoilers Bro! contest.

TFAW Announcement – As mentioned on the show, Punisher: Body Count is now affiliated with the world’s 3rd largest comic books and pop culture retailer in the world: Things From Another World! 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.
