CBR Review: Punisher MAX: Tiny Ugly World #1

I recently reviewed Punisher MAX: Tiny Ugly World #1 for CBR and, in the process wrote the following sentences: "It’s become par for the course for the Punisher MAX one-shots to focus on characters that happen to come across the Punisher, leaving him a specter in a comic that bears his name. Rarely has the character that takes the spotlight been so depraved and disturbing as Bobby Boorsteen, who lives in a building where the Punisher kills a whole bunch of drug dealers. It looks like another case of a small, cowardly person that’s empowered by watching the Punisher take action against the evils of the world, and it is that story. It’s just that the small, cowardly person is crazy and his form of empowerment is to take the only survivor of the Punisher’s rampage and torture him."
