CBR Review: Punishermax #14

I recently reviewed Punishermax #14 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The third story arc of Jason Aaron and Steve Dillon’s Punishermax continues to hum along nicely, exploring two different Frank Castles: the one that tried his best to become a regular guy after coming back from Vietnam, and the one that’s in prison right now, broken down and seemingly prepared to die. That contrast is striking, because neither of those characters has been seen before. Normally, pre-Punisher Frank is a regular guy and a loving husband, not an emotional cripple who would rather be in a jungle killing. The Punisher is a dedicated force of nature, not an emotionally destroyed man who has no fight left in him. It’s compelling writing paired with art that adds depth and a joy to read every month."
