This omnibus is violent … but I love it! It is incredible funny, surprising and, dare I say uplifting … I dare! Now, the bad guys really gets their a**es handed to them by The Punisher – the tactical/strategical intelligence of our antihero knows no limits and the inventiveness … wow. I’m not gonna spoil anything, but in one story Punisher has a (well deserved) real p***ed off Wolverine on his tail, and all he has got to defend himself with is a baseball bat, and I’m thinking to myself ‘tree’ vs. ‘adamantium’ … you are in trouble, Frank! But does Frank get the most out of that bat? YES!!! I’m not gonna spoil what happens, but I am going to point out, that what happens is funny, because it happens to Wolverine – had it happened to another character, without Wolverines mutant properties, I would have found it distasteful. And that’s the thing. Ennis walks a real tight rope in these stories, where they are certainly extreme, but still tastefully done.
I think it is a masterpiece – it has really brought a lot of laughs to this middle aged reviewer. Five stars! :-)
The artwork is fantastic. Steve Dillon, the artist for the majority of these issues, proves himself an equal partner to Mr. Ennis. His facial expressions and surprising compositional choices are always a revelation. He consistently conveys the physicality of the action, and imbues his scenes with a sense of physical gravity- the characters are really planted on the ground. This is quite rare in "super-hero" comics. The color artists do an exceptional job, as well--the colors are vibrant and practically glow from the pages.
Whether you are Punisher fan or not, this work is absolutely entertaining. Ennis and Dillon make this book a shifting canvas where they depict action, satire, slapstick, pathos, tragedy, and pain, sometimes all at the same time. Not to mention the fact that the book is beautiful and an incredible value. It is utterly enormous and well worth the money. A towering achievement in a superb collected edition.
The First Best Series. Jason Aaron's and Steve Dillon's MAX series was great too. Steve Dillon's art is unique and beautiful. Gone too soon!

1000+ pages of non-stop action! Possibly the jewel in my comic book collection! What a beauty - good sturdy binding, glossy pages filled with action. Mark my words - you will not be disappointed!
NO - DON'T THINK TWICE!!!! BUY IT!!!!
However Ennis brings a lot of his Preacher-esque humour to the Punisher stories and Dillon's art is fantastic. Overall its a very enjoyable read, with great art and Ennis adds a lot of variety to the mayhem and murder to keep things fresh. Very highly recommended omnibus if you are an Ennis fan or Punisher fan for that matter.
