The Punisher #1 Review

A new era has begun for the Punisher -- one that comes after the unique period where Frank Castle was briefly a murderous Iron-Man knock-off.

Extermination #1 Review

The teases at the end of various X-books showed the future X-Men being systematically destroyed by advanced sentinels in the distant future, one  where the time displaced X-Men are adults.
