Greg Rucka's new Punisher series is ending, and will have a five issue limited series to wrap it all up...and that's a damn shame.
I have liked Rucka's take on the character and the stories he has been telling. While they are set in a super-hero world, they feel like rough crime fiction, and he's done a great job of putting together a new supporting cast. I especially like that the only window we have into what the Punisher is thinking are his actions. No internal dialogue, no long expository discussions...he simply acts and we have to put the meaning to it. It also puts more of the burden of storytelling on the art, which is what a comic book SHOULD do.
It's a shame that the series didn't take off.
