drive-by readings: The Punisher: Frank Castle #72

The Punisher: Frank Castle #72 (Marvel)
"Welcome to the Bayou, Part 2"
Victor Gischler
Goran Parlov
Lee Loughridge
Cory Petit
this kind of narrative seems more familiar territory to Victor Gischler - Frank gets detoured in the Louisiana Bayou by a bunch of what else - stereotype redneck cannibals. i find that the Punisher laying the law down on psychotic serial killers (in the vein of B-movie horror thrillers) works better than say, trying to kill Norman Osborn with a high-tech Skrull rifle (look how that worked out). did he ever finish anything when dealing with super-powered A-list criminals? Scourge had a better tally. now, the Geautreaux clan of tourist choppers - that's the kind of scum Frank should be putting down on any given day. they should make a TV series out of this. HBO, are you listening?
