Punisher: Frank Castle #68 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Punisher: Frank Castle #68, about which I write the following sentences: "Duane Swierczynski doesn't seem particularly interested in building the tension within this scenario. In this issue, he shifts the focus away from Frank Castle to give us a glimpse of the past and present of a few of the key bad-guy players. The problem here -- and it's a problem that Swierczynski tends to have in his comic book work -- is that the pacing is too lethargic. The best thing Swierczynski's written for Marvel so far has been a single-issue 'Immortal Iron Fist' story, set in the future. That story was crisp, and fast-moving, and packed with detail. In his Punisher work, and in his 'Cable; series, Swierczynski plods along, and while some of the details may be interesting, they just drift in front of our eyes like a sad parade."
