Seems i'm not as informed as I thought I was! I read the two Welcome Back Frank stories that were released as part of the graphic novel collection. They used language like 'mother-loving' instead of motherfucking etc and it just seemed cheesy to me. From the Preacher creative team I expected something a little more adult.

So perhaps I should check out the proper MAX Punisher run which should sway my opinion.


Huh. I think maybe the people responsible for those reprints edited that themselves. I seem to remember the Marvel Knights Punisher having the sufficient gore, nudity and cursing that one expects from Ennis. I wonder if they censored/edited anything else out!?

I'd recommend having a look at the trades of that series or just skipping straight to Punisher: Born and the subsequent Punisher MAX run which brings the character into the 'real' world, away from superheroics and the tongue-in-cheek Preacher-esque humour.

Wonderful stuff. Taking place in Berlin between the years of 1928 and 1933 and featuring a wide variety of characters, examining the economic, political and cultural struggles of a fractured society still reeling from The Great War. Lutes has a great, detailed 'realist' style that every now and again delves into a strange kind of poetic romanticism when dealing with the characters' feelings and dreams. Making the real world events all the more brutal and affecting when they happen. Highly recommended.

Re-read. Even better than first time around. The art is fantastic. Now considering buying volume 2:

Fun, fast flowing and some beautiful art. Not taking it too seriously and i'm enjoying it :)

Also recently read Naruto 64 which is still going strong and it took me about a month to get through the awful Marvel 60's Origins GN.
