[Punisher MAX, Vol. 4 – HC] – (Garth Ennis, Lan Medina)
This hardback collects the two stories “Man of Stone” and “Widowmaker”. The quality of the paper in this collection is excellent and the images really jump off the page. “Man of Stone” is a compelling story with strong dialogue and great artwork. The main focus of the story is the punisher vs a barbaric Russian general. This is one of the best books I have read this year. The second story “Widowmaker” took me a while to get into but it had a satisfying conclusion. This was a very violent story of female revenge and featured a female punisher. Definitely not as good as “Man of Stone”. Artwork was very good. *Man of Stone is a 9+. (ISBN-13: 978-0785128670). 8/10.
