Witchblade/The Punisher #1

Witchblade/The Punisher #1
Seriously, what was the point of this book? It has nothing to do with anything, and it isn't even a particularly good Punisher story either. Nothing happens. No, seriously, nothing happens. Punisher stops a prison transport with a con turning state's evidence in it. And kills him. The end.

The major problem with this story is the Punisher's rationale for killing the bad guy before allowing him to turn state's evidence: by letting justice do its thing first, the Punisher could have ensured that many more vicious criminals were removed from the streets. By killing him first, that can never happen. The FBI/DA's office doesn't allow criminals like this to turn state's evidence unless they really can't make their cases without them. So the Punisher just goes ahead and fucks that all up. Yeah, I think he's smarter than that. Seriously, if it's so easy for him to waylay a prison transport, then how hard could it be for him to get to someone in prison? Hell, he's done it before. The best was when he did it during the Riker's Island prison riot in Daredevil.

But I digress. This book sucks. Totally useless CRAP.
