"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
A commenter wanted me to celebrate Veteran’s Day with a Cool Comic Book Moment, so fair enough, tomorrow we’ll get the last New Frontier moment. Today we’ll look at the conclusion to Garth Ennis’ run on Punisher.
Okay, the gist of the story is (SPOILERS!!!!!)…
A bunch of corrupt military officials ran afoul of the Punisher fairly early on in the Punisher Max series. They’ve been running from him ever since. Their current plan was to get a group of Army Special Forces to take him down. However, Frank Castle has shown the commander of the men, General Howe, the truth behind the evil military guys.
Howe has now left Castle alone in an apartment waiting for the officials, with a gun with 8 bullets – enough for each one of the 8 officials.
Meanwhile, Ennis has been interspersing the story of the men of Valley Forge (the Marines who were killed in Punisher:Born) through a new book written by the younger brother of the narrator of Punisher: Born.
For good measure, Ennis has Nick Fury show up as an example of an exhausted good American soldier.
So, with that all said and done, enjoy the conclusion of Garth Ennis’ Punisher run (art courtesy of the great Goran Parlov), which also serves as a nice celebration of American soldiers…
Happy Veteran’s Day to all you veterans reading out there!
