Jonas's Pick
Cowboy Ninja Viking#1 Starts @ 1:00
Jonas loves-slash-hates this comic? It's still a bit hazy if he likes this because he swears he won't be picking up issue #2 or any others. Is it a poor man's version of a poor man's version?
Dr. Ghislain is the creator of a program that that trains people suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder to become killers known as Triplets. Duncan, living his life as a Cowboy, a Ninja, and a Viking, is one of these Triplets and remains Ghislain’s greatest success, even if he/they want to kill the good doctor. When another Triplet goes rogue, Ghislain and Duncan must put aside their differences to track him down.

Sean's Pick
Noir: A collection of Crime Comics Starts @ 11:03
With crime comics quickly becoming a bona fide phenomenon, it is only natural that the company that published one of the touchstones in the genre would want a piece of the action. Frank Miller’s Sin City is one of the prolific author’s more praised works. It is also one of the books that really helped put Dark Horse on the map. Now 17 years after the seminal noir graphic narrative was launched, Dark Horse brings it's fans Noir: A Collection of Crime Comics.

John's Pick
Punisher #1 Starts @ 13:50
Jonas sums this up so: "The Punisher sees himself on the list and kills himself" There we spoiled the whole thing for you. Actually nothing like that even happens so I swear it's awesome. Probably the best fight scene in a comic ending with the title character getting his ass handed to him, I've ever seen.
Legendary artist John Romita Jr. returns to The Punisher, joined by regular series writer Rick Remender for this, the most ferocious battle of Frank Castle's life. Plus, a preview of the next exciting chapter of the Punisher. Make mine FrankenCastle!

Matt Page you're wrong.

This rules, I can't remember where I found it online though, so kudos whoever knows us Wednesday Warriors so well...


  1. I have to disagree with the part about Matt Page being wrong.

    I think he's right. I may start picking up the mainstream Punisher comics again in a few years, but for now, I am just going to stick with PunisherMax.


    I understand that comics always kill people and then they come back, but this - getting cut into pieces and being made into a Frankenstien monster? And then he's gonna get better again? That's too much for me to buy. It would have been a cute What If? issue, but not for regular continuity. And he's fighting alongside a mummy and a wolfman? And how is then ever going to be a normal person again after that?

    Punisher was so awesome in Civil War. He comes in and saves Spider-Man and won't hit Cap back and he's just rad. But if they try to make him cool again sometime down the road, I am just going to keep remembering how this guy was once a Frankenstein monster but he got over it.

    I love Steve Dillon so the PunisherMax is going to be awesome.

  2. I'm looking forward to the new Max Punisher a lot especially since they announced Jason Aaron was to start writing after issue #75 at ComiCon this year. So at least we agree there.

    The real reason I think your wrong though is because the punisher title is following in the mainstream marvel universe (I.E. punisher gets to shoot rhino in the face with a bazooka) whereas in Punisher Max he's the dark gritty street level revenge seeking hero I like the most. If they had done this in the Max title I would totally agree with you but its in the punisher title they are free to cut him into pieces and put him all back together at will.

    I wasn't at all into the regular title until now and I'll be interested to see how they put him back together once the storyline is over this is the random element of comics I've grown to love/hate as well about characters I just think its pretty awesome Norman will actually get to cross someone off his list. Even if it's just for an issue or two.

  3. I don't know who's head is that "sword is better with a gun on it" picture, but it needs like... three times more teeth.
