THE PUNISHER #2 Marvel Comics, 1987

This is the second issue of The Punisher's first ongoing series, by writer Mike Baron and artist Klaus Janson, published way back in 1987, when The Punisher was still cool.
I don't feel like typing today, so instead I will provide you with a hastily-drawn visual recap of the comic. Here, then, is The Punisher #2:

"Then I make out with a bear."

I am ending all my stories that way from now on.

Charlie Anders said...

Wow, this ruled. I wish the images were a tad bigger w/o having to click on them, though.

David Campbell said...

Hmm, let me work on that.

Patrick said...

This was the best post in the history of ever.

And you're not a bad artist, Dave. Better than I could do.

zailo said...

You should have ended with the lens cap on while the bear mutilates the Punisher just like Grizzly Man. Hysterical though.

I'd much rather read this than most actual Punisher stories.

Doesn't the cover art look like Frank is talking on his cell phone, though? "And then you...no! No way!...So what'd she do?....Uh-huh!....Oh, hang on, I'm punching you through a human chest, so I might lose the reception for a sec."

dwinn said...

That was totally Airwolf.

Anonymous said...

It's his cell phone gun! You have to be real careful not to mix up its functions.

Spiff said...

Please make these recaps a semi-regular feature.

smokedog said...

Nice job. I can't wait for the hardcover collection. Wahoo!

Matt Brady said...

Quite funny and enjoyable, but it looks like this took you much longer to draw than it would have to type. There's some pretty detailed stuff in there, like when the cop get shot and waves of anger radiate from Frank's head. Well done.

SanctumSanctorumComix said...

"..."

Wow.

Dave...you rock the house down.

Just...wow.

OOh! My word verification code is an onomatopoeia for the cell-phone/gun being punched thru a chest cavity!

THCKD!

gorjus said...

This is FANTASTIC!! So, so awexxome!! LONGBOX RULEZ!

Ryan said...

This post makes me want to be a better man.

David Lawson said...

Must.

Kill.

Helicopter.

That's just brilliant right there.

Dr. Pants said...

Best post ever. And that is saying something. In fact, it is saying "best post ever."

Then I make out with a bear.

Dweeze said...

So which issue is it where he makes out with the bear? It's Punisher War Journal #15, right?

Kitty said...

I would so read a Dave-created minicomic about the Punisher. Especially if it had bears!

ohgrl98 said...

I hate stick people so much!! Thanks for capturing my rage. You're so Airwolf. I will no longer read any comics that are not Predrawn By You For My Protection.

"nxllvn"--what the Punisher is about to receive from that bear. Big nxl luvn'.

Peter MacDonald said...

My word verification is "hogyh", whicn is the sound that the Punisher will make as the bear... uh, never mind.

Rob Schamberger said...

The Punisher is so butch that only a bear can handle him.

Kevin Church said...

*sobs*

That's...that's...

Christ, I don't know if I will ever see anything so crystalline and perfect.

kyyle23 said...

I love how the Punisher grabs the gun between the panels, thats priceless. Only you would think of killing all the cats and burning the house down, too funny. And sticking "-Airwolf-" in the comic was brilliant. It probably boosted the value of your second hand account of Punisher #2 to at least half the price of Punisher #2.

Anonymous said...

I think you captured the patented Punisher Noogie very well, Dave. Great job!

Larry McQuaide said...

When do you sign your exclusive with Marvel?

Chuck T. said...

Hee hee. Ever since Grizzly Man, whenever my wife gives me the lip, I call her a bear molester, and she calls me a bee lover. Then we simmer with resentment for a bit...
Great post, though. Is this new work?

Anonymous said...

Didn't Punisher make out with a bear under Ennis?

Anonymous said...

I think the Punisher is still cool. What's cooler than torching a murdering white slave trader?

Just make sure you don't use your cell phone gun near petrol pumps. It's been known to set off explosions.

Adam Reck said...

Hands down the comic of the year, even if it's a remake. Can every day be like this?

Jon H said...

Only one thing would make this better: If you drew the Punisher as a woman.

DUDE LOOKS LIKE A LAAAAAAADYYYYYYYY

KJToo said...

I thought ryan said, "This post makes me want to be a better nun," and that made me want to be a better nun.

A much better nun.

What if the Punisher punched his cell phone gun through a nun's chest?

Great post, Dave.

roel said...

Dude,

Your anatomy sucks. Your perspective is horrible. Your backgrounds are almost non-existent. You need to take more life drawing classes. I don't know how you got the gig drawing Punisher #2 but I'm glad that I didn't buy that issue because I would have felt very ripped off.

What do you mean I need to buy a clue? What the fuck do you mean I entirely missed the point? No, fuck you!

What?

arizonateach said...

You know, a REAL artist wouldn't be afraid to show a little more....arousal...on the Punisher's part in panel 1, page 2.

Sell out.

Brad Curran said...

Dave's hamstrung by the comic blogger's code. If he drew the Punisher's firearm woody in all its glory, he'd have Congress all over his ass. Also, it might very well destroy the world. At the very least, I think it would really fuck up Lisbon. Would you want that on Dave's conscience?

My word verification is usmdjfk. I can only assume that means that this post is very Kennedy-esque. Which means that Kennedy had a fondness for man-on-bear action.

SW said...

Gott in Himmel... David Campbell, just when I think we've seen the best you have to offer, you go and do ...this.

You had me at "Killed you, Liberace-style", Dave.

wtmavjck - the place to give bears and Bolivians pleasure.

Chris Sims said...

Goddammit. It's official, Campbell: You're the much better version of me.

philip said...

Dear Dave,

I've said it before and I'll say it again, if we weren't each otherwise betrothed, and if it were legal in the state of Washington, I'd totally marry you.

ever,
Philip

Beta Ray Steve said...

Finally, someone with the courage to show us the truth about man-bear love. Not those ugly stereotypes we see in the media every day.
Next stop: Oprah!

'axedif' what makes you regular again.

Anonymous said...

Man,there is not much I can say after this post.

The only thing that comes to mind : I wish garth Ennis had an ounce of your artistic vision. I would still be reading PUNISHER.

This post almost makes us even for planting Aerosmith in my head ( almost ).

Word verification for your reader from Germany : dxqfuiv. Which sounds like what the bear is about to do to Frank. I´m gonna dxqfuiv you, bitch !

David Cutler said...

"Ground will break my fall" still has me laughing. The number of times I've thought that while reading a comic book...

Tim Easy said...

The orgy of death panel rules!

bostonpenguincat said...

Y'know, i have a sneaking suspicion that that was no bear. That was a man in a bear suit....

Ladies and Gentleman, was that the secret origin of.... Yiff?

How long ago did your obsession of bears, men and sweet, sweet love start Dave?

Darth Krzysztof said...

This may be the greatest achievement in the history of civilization.

If not, it's definitely the funniest thing I've read in years.

I salute you, Dave!

Yours,
Darth Krzysztof

Derek said...

Best. Review. Ever.

I have to stop reading both comics and reviews now. Nothing will ever top the perfection that was this review.

Bored_Yesterday said...

Ra ra ra!

Chris said...

I love the Punisher but I don't think any character would have been more rife with parody possibilities. Fantastic summary, thank you.

Anonymous said...

Noogied to death by the Punisher. That's how I want to go out.

John E Williams said...

Y'know Dave, laff it up and all but your panel and page composition are pretty fucking good. Do you write your comic scripts this way, or type 'em out? (I myself do the former.)

David Campbell said...

I didn't write it out; I was jsut screwing around and did this during my commute time on the lovely Washington State ferry system.

For "real" projects I write full-on screenplay-style scripts with panel descriptions, etc.

John E Williams said...

Well, all right. Good composition skills nonetheless.

Anonymous said...

Did anyone else notice the disco ball above the lovers in the last panel? Great touch!

Dave is War!

jake saint said...

Good use of line weight to indicate depth.

Curiously, outside of the original Grant/Zeck mini, the reviewed is the only issue of Punisher (any series)that I own. I must have read it at least twice, as the story was familiar to me.

You'd think pointing out the "dead guys" in advance would mar the build-up of suspense, but you, sir, somehow carry it off with napalm.

"taaedh"? hell yes, I'm taaedh. Been at work since 8.

"Making out with a bear is cooler than torching a murdering white slave trader."

You do know that "bear" is a slang term for something other than an actual bear, right?

Andrew Perron said...

I have to agree, the pseudocomic was pretty well-done. <3

Jrzzmvuo. Can I jrzzmvuo bear? Please!

I must have read this issue 38 times as a kid, so even though I haven't seen a copy in a decade it brought back a lot of memories. Thanks for the nostalgia! Your hard work contributed to the five most enjoyable minutes of my work day.

It didn't occur to me until I saw your mini-comic here how ridiculous his "diamond-tipped fingernails" are. At the time I just thought, "Cool, man - slit wrists!" But wouldn't he cut into his own hands everytime he made a fist?

You drew this on the ferry? Did people sitting around you notice your work and move away from you?

Jayzgame said...

Oh man, Stephen Colbert was right. Bears are the enemy.

fgurf - The death rattle gangsters make when Frank noogies them into submission.

Bigseek said...

Truly Airwolf, Double Airwolf even.

Best ever. More please.

Mego said...

I would like to preorder the Special Edition of this comic with the embossed foil cover, please.

vhizby?

Chad Parenteau said...

"Then I make out with a bear."

I LOVE that line.

Reminds me of the National Lampoon essay by Michael O'Donoghue, "How to Write Good." In it, he attests that every story can end with "suddenly he was ran over by a truck," with only mild variations of the line ever having to be made.

I used to think that people getting hit by a truck was the perfect ending for anything ever written. Or I did until Dave's post here.

I would tell you all how I'd top Dave's ending, but suddenly I am ran over by a truck while making out with a bear.

My throat hurts because I could not laugh out loud, and had to swallow the laugh. Darn you and your silliness!
