Hopefully it's more Welcome Back, Frank than MAX.

YESH! Ennis' is still my favorite take on the character.

Hopefully it's more Welcome Back, Frank than MAX.

You're not a fan of MAX? I haven't given Welcome Back Frank a read, though.

Actually on paper the Thunderbolts are a great cast, it just poor writing. I'd to see what Garth could do with that team. Unfortunately, the Punisher doesn't sell enough anymore, to carry an ongoing solo title.

How well was he selling under Garth Ennis?

I don't know. But it's obvious, that Marvel doesn't want the Punisher, as a full time title. It's a real shame too, he used to carry three monthly ongoings. But that was in the "Dark Age", when the Punisher was one of Marvel's Big Four. Garth Ennis is one of my favorite writers. He's perfect for the Punisher. As for the Thunderbolts, i'd hate to see such a great lineup go down due to poor writing. Punisher, Deadpool, Venom, and Electra; none of which are heroes. They are ruthless vigilante anti-heroes, they all have that in common. The title just needs good writing. I've always felt that Marvel never treated, their darker character the right way. I know they had MAX, but isn't that outside the 616 universe? Characters like the Punisher, Deadpool, Blade, Hellstorm, Ghost Rider, and Venom; have great potential, if they were written right.

If it is MAX, it needs to be Slavers/Born Again-tier.

Around 30k at lowest but it was pretty high at times.

Isn't that considered good?How much was he selling under Jason Aaron?

#21 Posted by SonOfHellstorm (230 posts) - - Show Bio

If it was selling at 30k, that is considered good. Too good to be cancelled. When a title gets down below 22k, it faces possible cancellation. Was there a drop off with Jason Aaron?

#22 Posted by Bionder (296 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't believe that an issue of the Punisher right now could reach 30k, unfortunately...

But if gets between 25k~30k it would be ok, to handle itself.

Punisher MAX 22 (last book) from Aaron, reached 17.738k. The previous books were around this number too.

You realise that Tunderbolts is under a new writer and artist now?

#24 Posted by daredevil21134 (12112 posts) - - Show Bio

@jonny_anonymous: Yup, but as long as he's making the Punisher bang Elektra I won't be digging it

I don't like Ennis' Punisher. It's filled with poor attempts at satirical comedy and over-the-top gore filled violence at the sacrifice of Frank's character.

#29 Posted by Bionder (296 posts) - - Show Bio

@shadowpro: I wouldn't say "lie" because there are schedules and sometimes he doesn't depend on the writer... We will have this so called miniseries.
