Punisher: Body Count Episode 119

Gone too soon.

Credit to thank octo for the clipshow in the beginning of today’s show.

Introduction –  I live a life of ennui and Jake lives the Space Jam life with his mother-in-law.

[19:55] News – Here is that interview with the Punisher TV showrunner I mentioned. We then report on a Punisher wannabe that has a run-in with the police.

[38:00] Mail Call –  I fanboy out on an unlikely crossover idea, Jake and I delve into a cover mystery, and just goof off on your questions (sorry).

[1:02:40] Netflix and Kill – Billy Russo is that cousin you get stories about during Thanksgiving, and Jon Bernthal expresses himself with through 3-card monty and screaming.

[57:07] Bullet Points –  Guardians of the Galaxy #1 turns into your favorite Saturday morning cartoon, and we finally cover the first issue of Marvel Knights: 20th. In Punisher #7, Frank learns that being a non-stop killing machine may be actually kinda bad sometimes.

[1:33:45] Flashbacks – We follow Rosenberg’s reference by covering Punisher #37-40, written by Mike Baron and I can only assume some hallucinogens.

Punisher: Body Count Episode 118

118 logo

Welcome to the new year! In this episode, Jake and I discuss some of the drama around Punisher season 2, ruin our relationship with our Australian listeners, and shill for boner pill company.

Introduction – Jake and I catch up on our holiday breaks. Speaking about breaks, that’s what different parts of Jake’s body is doing. I win the lottery and my sister decides to get revenge on me.

Here is my cousin’s podcast that I mentioned and here is my recent appearance on Signal of Doom! I got to discuss half of season 2 with David, as well as get into Ennis’s Slavers arc.

[14:52] News – We talk about the new Guardians of the Galaxy company and the early reviews for Punisher season 2.

Here is that article about Jigsaw that I was talking about.

[28:45] Mail Call –  We get some great questions on the Punisher TV show and getting Punisher tattoos.

[57:07] Bullet Points –  We catch up with Punisher #5-6. The story is a roller coaster, and so is the art!

[1:33:45] Flashbacks – We go down under (it’s an Australia reference, you see) with Mike Baron’s Punisher vol. 2 #19 and then book a flight to Vegas with Punisher #20.

[2:03:58] Discharge Papers – Jake bonds with his daughter over Dragon Ball and I apparently spoil Megalo Boxing for him.

Punisher: Body Count Episode 117

Merry Christmas! We had to cut back some planned special content due to scheduling issues, but it’s still got plenty of Christmas cheer. An X-Mas miracle even occurs during the post-credits gifting segment, which may be my favorite 2018 moment.

Introduction – Jake talks about his snarky daughter and I discuss the trials and tribulations of being a t-shirt mogul.

[9:20 ] News – We give a eulogy for Stan Lee and the Marvel Netflix shows.

[24:25] Mail Call –  We get into a power-level fight on how to make Cosmic Ghost Rider stronger and then question what the cut-off age is for being murdered by Frank.

[36:18] Bullet Points –  We finish up discussing future Eisner award contender Cosmic Ghost Rider #5. We continue the good times with Punisher #4, with a Jigsaw appearance that we don’t hate.

[57:05] Flashbacks – We make good on last episode’s promise and get to the first arc of Matt Fraction’s Punisher: War Journal, including #1-3. This was a Civil War tie-in, and was a “re-introduction” of Frank back to the mainline Marvel comics.

[1:56:03] Discharge Papers – Jake and I can’t believe how good Creed 2 is, and then we get into some anime nostalgia. Here’s the Youtube channel I recommended: Overly Sarcastic Productions.

[1:03:17] Bullet Points – Cosmic Ghost Rider #4 continues to surprise us with its delightful tonal shifts. We then get caught up on Punisher #2-3, where Frank is just an asshole to everybody and Daredevil settles in to being a tired housewife. We also read What If Spider-Man Became the Punisher? and the answer is that his life turns out pretty great.

[1:35:15] Flashbacks – It finally happened. We covered the first six issues of FrankenCastle. The nightmare is finally over.

Punisher Body Count: Episode 115

It’s the Ken Kristensen intervi222223752c45ec144dd07781ccf8dfcc_400x400ew we talked about a month ago! We had some technical difficulties with the Halloween episode, but it is coming out, rest assured. However, it wasn’t fair to delay the interview with Ken any longer, so Jake and I decided to release it on its own.

Ken has had a fascinating career in comics, TV, and film, and he turned out to have some fascinating stories for us. He is a staff writer on the Punisher TV series and personally wrote the “Virtue of the Vicious” episode, which was one of our favorites of season one.

He is also behind a wide variety of indy comics such as Todd: The Ugliest Kid on Earth and his most recent work, OBLIV18N. Please check out his work!

Punisher: Body Count Episode 114

Here’s a fun drinking game: Take a shot every time Jake and I say “SJW.” Enjoy not going to work tomorrow if you do! Also, we did interview Ken Kristensen, and that will come out in a bonus episode.

Introduction – Jake won his Fitbit Challenge! And participated in a public shooting drill. Meanwhile, I traveled to Brooklyn with a friend and almost committed assault on a podcast host. Also, Jake and I bring up my comedy album The Paul Peron Tapes. Follow that link for some free tracks or check out the iTunes and Google Play stores to download them. I appreciate it.

[49:55] News – Jon Bernthal does some John Wick-style gun training, and I talk about upcoming release dates for your favorite Netflix shows and that one Infinity Warp comic.

[1:17:50] Mail Call – We get some good questions about Punisher continuity and new possible criminal targets.

[1:36:45] Bullet Points – We continue the mad house that is  Cosmic Ghost Rider #3. We read Punisher #1, where Frank continues harrassing a man with a purple sock on his head. We also read Old Man Logan Annual #1, where Frank wants kids to get off his damn lawn.

[2:13:20] Flashbacks – Marvel What If? #29 answers the age old question: “What if Secret Empire was good?” Here we have a hypothetical story of Captain America forming his own original Avengers, and Frank is there in the War Machine armor.

[2:22:25] Doomsday Cuck – We get mad about Doomsday Clock #3-6. Good times.

[2:44:00] Discharge Papers – Jake recommends John Claude Van Johnson on Amazon Prime, and then we tag team Iron Fist season 2.
