I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this one other than what’s right there in the title. But that was enough to make me curious. Issue #1 was actually pretty cool. I like how the story is told by both sides back and forth. It’s a nice touch.
So The Punisher is out for this guy “The Bank,” who is funding this club called Vs. It’s an underground club where people bet on the superhero fights they see on the news. Good premise. The Bank is someone who has worked with Deadpool. So there’s the mix-up. Deadpool is at The Bank’s mansion when Punisher shows up for the hit.
Much bloodshed ensues. It’s gruesome but also has the right amount of fun. Really, it’s like a well-done balance of the tones of the recent Deadpool and Punisher solo comics. I like this one – maybe more than I expected really.
