"…while another hand is driven by a new lord on a mission of punishment". Today sees the publication of Marvel Comics Timeless #1, the big end-of-year volume that sets up much of what will be coming in upcoming Marvel Comics titles, in the manner that Marvel Now #1, Marvel Comics #100, and Incoming #1 in recent years did. And there are plenty of teases as to what is coming in Marvel Comics over the months to come. And Bleeding Cool will be breaking lots of them down with the Timeless tag today. Warning, there are spoilers.
We have seen The Punisher with his new Devil Skull logo, and leading The Hand. This however is the first time we have seen him wielding swords instead of guns. This will all come in Punisher #1 from Jason Aaron and Jesus Saiz in March from Marvel Comics. The Punisher without his guns and with a new logo? No wonder this series was originally called Punisher No More.
