By-the-numbers vigilante tale, suitably violent and sordid, with a predictable twist at the end.
Itís noteworthy because itís an origin story.
7/10

  I should love these Dominic Fortune stories. I like the concept and the time period, but for some reason they are missing the mark for me.

  I'm starting to see why Punisher became so popular. This solo stuff is a good beginning.

  Really liking the Punisher stuff. Unfortunately everything else is kinda dull so it's dragging the issue rating down. Sorry, Frank!

  The Punisher story was good
The Huntress story was OK
The Fortune story was dull

  Punisher was excellent. Huntress was interesting, especially the part about an ambiguous SHIELD. Fortune was as average as the first one.

  I find myself not caring at all about this Fortune character.

  Castle: love the Punisher's early stories.
Morse: decent, like to read some more.
Fortune: your stories have the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile, Mr. Fortune. Given then choice between the two of you, I'd pick the seasick crocodile... Just sayin...

  Enjoyed the "origin story" for the Punisher, though I'm not sure that term really fits. He's pretty much the Punisher as soon as his family hit the ground, so it feels more like an "early adventures of" story.
The narration was very weird though, and I'm guessing that the framing device was added after the main story was complete. Even though Castle is supposed to be telling this story to his hooker, the actually narration takes the form of his regular war journals.
The art for the most part was good, but for some reason these guys are apparently terrible at drawing sea creatures.

  Now this is the type of Punisher story I expect to see: mob guys being taken down in spite of themselves and the best protections they can muster. The framing device with the call girl assassin didn't quite fit around it as well, but it served its purpose and gave us the insight that he's going to continue his war. All in all, a great early story.

4 stars. I wish they'd produced more of these kinds of stories; this is how you do the non-CCA format.
