    Happy 64th Birthday, Mike W. Barr!



    This 40-cent issue marks the first meeting of Captain America and the Punisher. Mike W. Barr is the writer for the issue, drawn by Frank Springer and inked by Pablo Marcos. John Costanza letters and George Roussos colors. Roger Stern served as editor.

    At this moment in time, the “Captain America” series is going through a series of fill-in issues, but this one will end up being the most historically significant. Steve Rogers’ neighbor sees someone she thinks might be a Nazi skulking about. But it’s the Punisher, in his black garb with white skull emblem. Steve, working on an art assignment, hears a rifle shot and goes to investigate. It’s the Punisher, aiming to terminate a mob courier -- who Cap coincidentally saved, earlier.

    The Punisher is preparing to take out a meeting of mobsters - but Cap can’t stand by and approve of his judge, jury and executioner tactics.
    The two spar, before being forced to work together. The mobsters are captured, with the help of an undercover operative.
    While Cap’s prepared to bring the Punisher in, the Punisher has an escape plan, leaving Cap to muse on what may happen if they meet again. http://www.comicsreporter.com/index....y_mike_w_barr/

    Anyone heard any recent news on Ennis' Platoon series?

    I feel like I haven't heard even the slightest peep about it in over a year.

    The Punisher #27
    “Your Tax Dollar$ at Work”
    By Mike Baron and Russ Heath
    Published December 1989

    A much larger Navy submarine is threatening to destroy the Punisher and the whistleblower in the little experimental sub they stole. Punisher gets on the radio and claims to be a Russian spy who wants to defect. Even though he previously was on the radio taunting the CEO of Underwater Boat Co., the Navy guys buy it and send over some heavily armed men in wetsuits to get them. Punisher kicks them in the face and disarms them, they steal two wet suits, and then come back to commandeer the bigger sub where they get on the radio and broadcast the whistleblower reading his files aloud.

    The CEO, senators, and high-rankin’ Navy guy manage to order all radio frequencies jammed from Maine to Maryland, a move that one admits will lose him his job and get them investigated by the FCC. Another sub is dispatched to destroy their sub, so Punisher convinces the captain to order a nuclear missile strike on the CEO’s house.

    When the President of the United States gets word that a nuclear sub has activated its warheads, he radios them demanding answers. They explain and he directly orders the other sub to stand down, relieves high-rankin’ Navy guy of duty and orders him to stay there until military police arrive–prompting high-rankin’ Navy guy to blow his brains out. Punisher and the whistleblower escape in wetsuits and the experimental sub blows up because they boobytrapped it.


    The Punisher War Journal #14
    “Blind Faith”
    By Carl Potts, David Ross, and Russ Heath
    Published January 1990

    Neo-Nazi Hartmann is making a speech in the park that turns violent while Peter Parker is out looking for photos to take for the Daily Bugle. J. Johah Jameson transcribes some of his hate speech and publishes an article that upsets Hartmann because it takes his quotes out of context. He is convinced the media are against him because they know if they deliver his true message in full, the superior white race will hear the divine logic and flock to him. He also believes angels talk to him.

    Punisher and Microchip read the article and, out of curiosity, hack into Hartmann’s personal computer. On it, they find a list of people who have upset Hartmann in some way–including ones who fought with his followers at the park–and realize many of the older names belong to people who have been murdered or disappeared. They try to call one of the names to warn the family, but the man who answers hangs up, interpreting Micro’s warning as a threat.

    Punisher rushes over to that person’s house just as Hartmann’s army of followers blows a hole in the brick fence in the backyard and comes pouring in with machine guns and hand grenades. Oh, and Peter Parker happens to be walking down the street at the same time. Punisher shoots some of the guys, Spider-Man fights some others off, and then they team up to drive to Hartmann’s ranch.

    Then there’s a news report that Hartmann’s people have the Daily Bugle under siege. Spidey tells Punisher to turn around, but there are cars of Hartmann’s followers with machine guns behind them and a big truck in front. Punisher says he can blast them with the guns on his van, but Spider-Man doesn’t want him to kill anyone. So Spidey has to decide whether to risk the lives of the people at the Bugle to spare Nazis.

    Also, Hartmann has two followers who are a blind man and a… tripliplegic guy in a wheelchair who can only move one arm. But they’ve learned to work together to shoot a crossbow with the blind man resting the bow on the wheelchair guy’s head for aiming.


    Punisher War Journal #15
    “Headlines!”
    By Carl Potts, David Ross, and Russ Heath
    Published February 1990

    Neo-Nazi leader Hartmann and his people kill a guard at the Daily Bugle and then take a bunch of people in the newsroom hostage, including Mary Jane, who is there to pick up Peter’s check for the photos he took of Hartmann’s rally that turned violent. Hartmann demands J. Jonah Jameson allow him to write his manifesto and publish it in the next edition of the Bugle. He tells his story of fleeing Hitler’s Germany as the allies were winning the war and being raised in South America while being taught to uphold the Nazi ideals. Later, angels told him to spread the word of white supremacy.

    SWAT guys try to land on the roof but get shot down with a rocket launcher and Hartmann tosses a random red-shirt Bugle employee out a window to her death to prove he’s serious. He finishes his manifesto and sits back to wait for the Aryan masses to read the paper and rise up to join him, ending the stand off with the police.

    Spider-Man fights off Hartmann’s people who have him and the Punisher boxed in, preventing the Punisher from killing them all. They get to the Bugle and split up with Spidey going to the roof and the Punisher going in through the sewer. Punisher kills a bunch of guys, but also gets beat up and not killed only by virtue of the fact a bad guy wasted all his bullets shooting at nothing earlier.

    When confronted by Spider-Man, Hartmann throws Mary Jane out the window because there’s no way Spider-Man can stop him and save her at the same time and because someone must have told Carl Potts about the death of Gwen Stacy and he said, “Nuh-uh! Spider could so save his girlfriend without breaking her neck!”

    Jameson tackles Hartmann and beats him senseless. The angels tell Hartmann he’s failed them and Microchip diagnoses Hartmann as having a psychological condition over a headset without ever even seeing the guy… which makes him kind of like a pre-internet version of WebMD. And the Punisher catches the blind man/wheelchair guy combo posing as hostages and ducks out of the way as the wheelchair guy uses his one good arm to wind up shooting blind man and killing him. Punisher then spares wheelchair guy’s life because he’s so pathetic lying on the ground.

    How is Becky Cloonan doing on the new series? I haven't read it yet... Dillon's art turns me off.. but if the story telling is good I may decide to pick it up.
