PC POST #290: Punisher Solicit for May & Dillon's Sketches

Marvel released the solicit for May and finally we have the sinopse plus the variant covers for the upcoming run by Becky Cloonan and Steve Dillon.

A by-the-numbers drug bust is about to take Frank Castle by surprise...and he HATES surprises. The horrible fallout threatens to send The Punisher into the heart of darkness, but Castle won't make that journey alone: A DEA agent is on his trail and attempting to get into his head...but what horrors will she find there, and will she survive the experience? First-time Punisher writer Becky Cloonan and quintessential Punisher artist Steve Dillon are forcing Frank Castle out of his comfort zone and taking him to the edge of the world he thought he knew!

Today, Axel Alonso released the sketches by Steve Dillon for the upcoming Punisher ongoing series. Which seems to be the main characters for this run.

The look of the Punisher is really good! Can't wait for May!

PC POST 289: -Insight- Daredevil S02 Trailer #2 (Punisher Centric Trailer)

I finally settle down... It took me a few hours to do it. But now, i'm good.

For those who let slip the upcoming Daredevil S2 trailer #2 with the Punisher in it check the link below.

Well this was clearly a Punisher centric trailer, i was amazed by Jon Bernthal's acting and the script. Bernthal actually gave depth to Frank Castle, he is full of rage, tormented, cold and looks very focused in his mission.

Some people might notice that Bernthal isn't wearing any skull. Yeah, that's right, this is, his Year One story (sort of). Like i have said in other posts he isn't wearing any skulls in his chest. Right now he is Frank Castle, doing is one man army to get rid of the criminals who took away the family from him. At this moment he haven't decide to be the known vigilante called the Punisher.

My guess is that he will be using a skull at the end of season 2. And probably with this design of the latest promo clip.

While i saw this trailer i get the feeling that Frank Castle will be the main "villain" if we can say that. Personally i think Netflix is hiding the main "bad" guy, the Punisher will be the anthagonist of Daredevil, someone who will make him doubt himself about his morals and methods of crime fighting. Maybe we can see more about the main "villain" in the upcoming second part of the trailer that will be released in ten days.

Aside from all the action (which was great) in this trailer here goes some stuff that intrigued me.

Punisher family

 In this picture we can see Frank's daughter ( Lisa?) but i wonder why we can't see the rest of the family. His wife (Maria) and son (Frank Jr.) are missing in this picture. The picture frame cut the rest of the picture but i can see someone holding Frank's hands.

The Carousel

 Don't know if the carousel will have a special meaning but by the look of it, it seems that Frank is waiting for something... Looking at the emptiness until we see him fighting these thugs.

The Grave 

DD S2 Trailer #2

First trailer NY Comic Con
Don't know the meaning of this grave that appeared in two trailers, but i can bet this must be where Frank's family is buried.

Guilty or Innocent?

In the trailer we see Frank in a rooftop putting his crosshairs in the head of this person... It wasn't revealed yet who he is, if he is some sort of criminal or some innocent guy that Frank is mistankenly targeting. Let's hope for the first option. He should be a criminal. 

Glorious quotes from Frank to Daredevil.

"You hit 'em and they get up. I hit 'em and they stand down".

"Because i think you are a half-measure. I think you're a man who can't finish the job. I think that you're a coward." 

"You know you're one bad day away from being me".

PC POST #288: Daredevil / Punisher #1 (2016) Miniseries

Yesterday Marvel released a cover of a comic book with Daredevil and Punisher in it. They didn't release any details, only the artist will be Reilly Brown (Cable & Deadpool, Amazing Spider-Man) and the released date for this comic to be in the week of 4th of May. 

This will not be a comic book like we are used to see, it will only be released in digital form. This book is part of the project called "Infinite Comics", that Marvel began in 2012 with Avengers vs X-Men Infinite.

For those who don't know what is "Infinite Comics", it's basically a interactive story specially designed for digital platforms. Infinite comics are designed for horizontal, on screen reading. One of the major points of these Infinite Comics is the dynamic panels, transitions and captions or dialogue boxes that appear sequentially on an image at the prompting of the reader. The user can keep his own pace of the reading experience, advancing the story with each swipe.

This article will be update as soon as i have more information to share about it.

*Update: There is already a solicit of an issue #2 without any image/cover, we can guess it's a miniseries.
 Reilly Brown just told me he is going to do the covers and the layouts of the comic. While the finished art will be doing by Szymon Kudranski.

Kudranski sent me an old sketch of his Punisher artwork. He has a very realistic artwork. Awesome!


Update #02: New synopse was released by Newsarama:

A simple change of venues for one of Matt Murdock’s cases becomes more complicated when THE PUNISHER attempts to send the defendant away…permanently! If DAREDEVIL and BLINDSPOT want to get this mobster his day in court, it will take every ounce of wit and wile they have. All Frank needs to get what he wants is a bullet. The race is on!"

Update #03: Charles Soule will be the writer of this series! This story will debut digitally in March and it will be printed in April.
