Civil War: Punisher War Journal by Matt FractionWhat a mess. I mean, aside from a paper thin plot-Frank is recruited by Cap Am during Civil War, guess what happens-the script is barely coherent and seems done by an aspiring writer, not Matt Fraction.
The story is confused, the narration is hacked, ellipses look like holes, I mean, WTF?
Frank talks way too much, to a point he seems off-character-Ennis bad influence on the much better Max imprint I reckon.
Even Cap seems out of himself with some speech to kill VCs when touring Marines Boot Camps.
The only good issue is the last one, bittersweet funerals for a C-list villain.
I dont like Olivettis art. Period. Not to say hes bad, it just aint my cuppa. Deodato illustrates the 4th but in a sad low key mode.
To say I bought the whole lot of TPBs at a bargain sale...
