CBR Review: Punishermax #22

I recently reviewed Punishermax #22 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "There’s a sense in the issue of Fury, and Aaron, struggling with the idea that there is no big meaning here. Any fancy words and moving speeches would maybe make people feel better or give some sense of closure, but they would be lies. In the wake of Castle’s burial, Fury’s narration sums it up perfectly: 'And the truth is, Frank... Truth is you murdered, suffered and died... All for nothing. You didn’t change the world, Frank, You didn’t even change New York City.' It’s a sentiment that flies in the face of what the death of a character like the Punisher should be, but it’s completely adherent to both Aaron’s run on the title and Ennis’s. Frank Castle is no hero, he’s a killer that just happens to kill bad people. There’s no meaning, there’s just that sad truth."
