Punisher: Soviet #2 is in stores from Marvel Comics next week, by Garth Ennis and Jacen Burrows, bringing the Punisher back to his MAX days.
And in this preview, The Punisher has come face to face with a copycat, a man doing Punisher's job of brutally murdering criminals, but leaving Frank to take the credit… or the blame.
But when these two come face to face, it turns out they may have more in common.
Perhaps this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship? Frank could definitely use more friends.
Sharing a hatred of criminals and a passion for killing is good basis to form a lasting bond.
Stepanovich is certainly willing to share, delving right into his origin story.
Punisher: Soviet #2 hits stores on Wednesday.
