"Eminem/The Punisher" One-Shot

Untitled

Writer: Fred Van Lente

Artist: Salvador Larroca

Colors: Frank D’Armata

Make a list of team-ups/crossovers, and we all know what’s at number one: the infamous “The Punisher Meets Archie” crossover, that was so bizarrely absurd that you couldn’t believe it when it turned out to be good.  XXL Magazine and Marvel recently teamed up for “Eminem/The Punisher“.  The result is…well, hit the jump to find out.

(But before we go, eesh, what is Punisher doing with those guns?  He looks like he’s holding them so daintily…)

The Pull List! — Week of February 18, 2009

In The Pull List! on February 18, 2009 at 1:06 am

So here we are, my first official pull list on the new Homeworld, and I must admit its a bitter one.  Last week saw the end of “Nightwing”, and this week sees the end of two more great DCU titles, “Robin” and “Birds of Prey”.  Its quite the shame; these titles have had their missteps but have always been solid books with consistently good sales and fantastic stories.  Mind you, these characters will be showing up next week in “Battle for the Cowl”, but that’s beyond the point.  That said, let’s dive in headfirst: here’s what you need to be sure to pick up in comics this week!

Teaser Poster Available for “Punisher: War Zone”

In Comics on May 17, 2008 at 7:53 am

UGO.com has the teaser poster for the sequel “Punisher: War Zone”. You can view the teaser here.

Honestly, I’m not sure how I feel about this sequel. Its promising, of course, but I fear its going to be tainted by the image of the first one, both positively and negatively. Aside from myself and three or four others, 2004’s “Punisher” flick didn’t do so hot. A lot of people disliked Tom Jane in the lead role (I disagree. I personally thought he nailed the film’s iteration of the character.). Jane’s no longer in the sequel, having pulled out months ago because he didn’t feel the script was up to snuff with the standards fans would have for the character, a move that should have singlehandedly earned him the love and admiration of a dozen Punisher fans. Seriously, Jane gets it.

His replacement, Ray Stevenson, looks eerily like Jane, but regardless, the unfortunate stigmata hangs over the sequel. The Lexi Alexander directed sequel is slated for a December 5, 2008 release, and also stars Julie Benz (John Rambo, TV’s Dexter) and Dominic West (Hannibal Rising, TV’s The Wire) as classic Punisher villain Jigsaw.
