  1. What 2 disparate styles…. Dillon, Palmiotti and Ennis on one side; Baum, Shanower, and Young on the other….

    Like mixing bubblegum pop with death metal…..

  2. One of the things that disappointed me about the first post-2000 Punisher movie was that the neighbours just weren’t as funny or endearing as their comicbook counterparts, particularly Spacker Dave who didn’t have any of his upbeat exuberance.

    That story with the Punisher taking on a guy poisoning aspirin, wasn’t that part of a crossover with Daredevil, with the DD part being written by Ann Nocenti? I don’t think I saw the whole of it, but I do recall liking the end of it, when Daredevil’s trying to convince the poisoner to let him defend him in court. I was particularly fond of a line that Daredevil had, something like “society has to take responsibility for the people it crushes”.
