And with that, convention season 2017 has ended. Now I get to work on all the projects we’ve got planned for the next year, while at the same time preparing for convention season 2018.
If of course, we’re all still here.
Regardless of that, today I wanted to talk about The Punisher. More specifically, the 19th Marvel and Netflix series.
I’m only 5 episodes in, but thus far I can confidently say The Punisher is my favorite to date. I’m not saying the others were bad, Luke Cage was my previous leader; but Punisher is something else.
Yes, it’s incredibly violent, and yes, that comes at a time when gun violence on this continent is becoming more common everyday. That said, this is the Punisher I grew up wanting to see.
I remember picking up Punisher: War Zone as a kid, after spending time convincing my mother that the comic was appropriate for me (it wasn’t). The tortured hero, who takes his anger and does something with it; the bodies he leaves in his wake. Frank Castle is a tidal wave of death, and god damn does Jon Bernthal deliver on that promise.
I’m excited as hell to watch the rest of the series, which I’ll do at my pace of 1 per day.
All that said, this is how my Marvel series are currently ranking:
- The Punisher
- Luke Cage
- Dardevil Season 2
- Jessica Jones
- Daredevil Season 1
- Iron Fist
-Because I Can.
