The Punisher, Issue #3 starts with the DEA thinking they're closing in on Frank Castle. Meanwhile, Castle is closing in on the compound where the bad guys live, where they create EMC, the super-soldier drug. Unbeknownst to him, Josaiah has a surprise for the Punisher: the redneck's daughter is being used as a suicide bomber. Also, a former veteran from Castle's Marine unit known as "the Face" is still at large.
I've given my appreciation to the artwork, the coloring and the lettering of this title in previous reviews, but there's one thing I noticed about the artwork, and that's the colors being used, military greens and beiges. I also appreciate the way shadows and light are used on the characters' faces. I'm hooked on the realism of this comic. The antagonists are very well developed, but they're new. The Punisher isn't out there fighting the Penguin and Lex Luthor. This means that he can dispatch the new characters instead of them getting away every time, like a Batman cartoon from the 1990s, where they all end up in Arkham Asylum.
