PUNISHER #5-6 (1996): 1st Firefox

The heads of the mafia (maggia) meet and Tombstone speaks for them all when he says that making Frank Castle the head of a family is not cool.

The police know about the meeting and break it up in a hail of bullets, but everyone–including Punisher–survives and escapes.

Meanwhile, a Russian mafia leader is coming to the U.S.

Punisher’s Rogue’s Gallery is literally one person: Jigsaw. None of his enemies last longer than a story or maybe two. He does survive his first engagement with Pun.

We’ll see how Firefox does in upcoming issues.

I still love this series–it’s a truly fresh and different take on Punisher. My main criticism is his ridiculously long pony tail.
