Punisher (2018) #1 Complete Cover Checklist

Frank Castle is back! Matthew Rosenberg returns to the storytelling helm with Punisher #1, part of Marvel’s Fresh Start Initiative. Italian Artist Riccardo Burchielli, best known for his work on critically acclaimed comic series “DMZ”, will be turning a few heads with his vivid illustration of one of Marvel's most controversial antiheroes.

“We’re going back to Frank Castle with a handgun and a knife, stalking the streets of New York, and getting his hands dirty"
-Matthew Rosenberg in a Marvel.com interview

With a new chapter in Frank Castle's war, we are bound to see some incredible fights and villains along with what are sure to be some hot variants. Punisher #1 will be released in comic book shops and digital media on August 22, 2018. Be on the lookout for an all-star lineup of artists as well, including the likes of Mike Zeck, Frank Cho, Clayton Crain, Lucio Parrillo, Salvador Larroca, and many more.

Many are speculating on what effects the War Machine armor will have on Frank. Will he be unsatisfied going back to regular street thugs and Mafioso types? Or will it be an enjoyable return to his roots, cleaning up the streets and doing it with vigilante justice? We do have a hint from Rosenberg:

“(Frank) is a man who’s changed from his time in the (War Machine) armor. He developed a taste for bigger game and larger targets.”
--Matthew Rosenberg in a Marvel.com interview
