Several years ago, under a cloudless day in New York's Central Park, Frank Castle's family was slaughtered in a mob crossfire. On that day, the man known as Frank Castle died and in his place was born the Punisher, a relentless engine of vengeance. Five stories take an unflinching look at what really happened that day, providing a penetrating look into the mass of hard muscle that once was Frank Castle's heart. You won't look at the Punisher the same way again.


Tom Piccirilli and Laurence Campbell take The Punisher on a walk through New York with only a little girl for company, as he helps her find her father. But he has to make it back to his targets house to kill him before time runs out.


Gregg Hurwitz and Das Pastoras take us back to the late 70's, to witness Frank Castle's first kill as The Punisher.


Duane Swiercynski and Tomm Coker tell the story of Sgt. Hickey, a New York cop selling evidence online.

Unfortunately, he's raided Frank Castle's familys box for a quick buck. He's made the list, and now he's a target.


Peter Milligan and Goran Parlov retrace The Punisher's history in the MAX books via a letter from Lisa Castle,The Punisher's daughter.


Charlie Huston and Ken Lashley reveal the true nature of The Punisher as he attacks a group of criminals, and suffers flashbacks of his short time with his family.
