Punisher: Body Count Episode 17

So we paid some podcast consultants, and from their investigations they discovered our viewing demographic craves more discussion on the following topics:

  • Frank Castle’s surveillance and make up kits
  • Battle van schematics
  • Marvel’s current art practices
  • Monorails
  • Car problems
  • Can there be a thing as too much beard?
  • Hair pulling during sex

And if that’s the case, then by God you will love this podcast.

Introduction – We talk about the sorry state of our lives, and I bring up how Shaq proves monorail conductors aren’t pilots.  We also talk about two new Punisher series coming out this summer, which are SPACE: Punisher and Untold Tales of Punisher MAX.

Mail Call – One of our listeners ask us who would make a good writer or artist on the Punisher.  We also get asked who is our favorite Punisher sidekick/team-up member.

Bullet Points – We discuss Greg Rucka’s Punisher #9.  In summary:  The story, even with its sudden turn toward the Omega Effect crossover, is solid, but the fill-in art does not deliver.  This spirals out into us complaining into Marvel’s current publishing strategy.

Flashbacks – Friend of the show Will Strack suggested and wanted to discuss Punisher Armory #1 and 2 with us, but due to the birth of his child, he couldn’t make it.  We soldier on and discuss a series of Punisher books that don’t have the Punisher in it — only his guns and equipment.  We bring up some history on the book and discover how Eliot Brown is the true Punisher Super-fan, and how Frank is a giant nerd about his gear.

Discharge Papers -We’re a little light on the material, where I discuss Jonathsn Hickman’s awesome comics and get pleasantly surprised by Kick-Ass 2.  Jake brings up the show Comic Book Men because he hates me.  We also discuss Dr. Seuss books and get excited for Flashpoint (the movie).
