Punisher: War Zone Annual #1 (1993): 1st Phalanx

John Buscema’s art is helpful for this three-story comic about Punisher killing bad guys.

As usual, nothing wrong with this issue. It’s just more of the same. The only key thing here is that it introduces an armored vigilante who teams up with Punisher.

His name is Phalanx. Chuck Dixon will bring him back one more time.

Sometimes, it’s important to have a dose of silly in your overly serious, super-violent Punisher comics.
