PUNISHER WAR ZONE #12-16: Psychoville (1993)

Punisher is captured by a secret government organization that brainwashes him and makes him do their work.  It’s a cool story, and it takes its time to develop.  Pun is captured, we see the brainwashing process–which includes giving him a fake wife and kids and putting him in a fake town to live.  (That’s how they can say the familial scene on the cover does appear in the issue.)

It’s also a good story because Microchip has more to do than usual–he tracks down Punisher and frees him from the mind control.

It’s a pretty different kind of Punisher story, and novel Frank Castle tales are kind of hard to come by.
