    Thats not how the story turned out though. The story ended with Cole-Alves being Punisher 2.0, perfectly capable of operating on her own. The overall message seemed to be "Military + Dead Family = The Punisher" and the idea of wannabe Punishers was handled much better by Ennis in "Widowmaker."

    That was cool at first but theres a reason the monologue is so ubiquitous. If you don't have that insight into The Punisher's head (either through monologue or by dialogue) then the character just becomes a thing that shoots things and if he is just a thing that shoots things then he isn't an interesting character to read about. And while a Gotham Central-style book centered around The Punisher is a cool idea (and those detective moments were my favorite part of Rucka's run), it was undermined by presenting a female clone of the character. It felt like a cheat to take that stance on the character while bringing in a surrogate and developing that character instead. Rucka either should have committed to telling the story from an outsider perspective and left Cole-Alves out of it or he should have gone for the internal perspective to redevelop the 616 version of the character for a new generation.
    Miller was right.

    I have to agree with Isabella's Black Lightning and Silver Surfer vol. 1. I also enjoyed Star Hunters, a very short lived DC sci-fi comic by Dave Michelenie. I'd like to have seen the Champions get into a groove and continue. Also, Logan's Run, Machine Man, Richard Dragon, Kung-Fu Fighter, and Karate Kid were pretty good.

    Dean Motter is still producing Mr X at Dark Horse, which is very much in the vein of Terminal City. In fact, Radiant City, Terminal City, and Electropolis are all linked by a monorail, so Motter can his have his characters visit each other anytime he wishes.

    Seagles's Alpha Flight

    Seagle's Primal Force

    PAD's She-Hulk

    Jones' Wonder Man

    That last one remains a mystery. The book ran 29 issues, but there was no mention in #28 that the next issue would be the last; they just sprung it on the readers in the letter column. Also, if you look at the Bullpen Bulletins pages in any Marvel book from the following months, there are blurbs in the checklists for WM #'s 30-32 (33?), including mentions of Asgard, the Hate Monger, etc. I've tried Googling old interviews with Gerard Jones to see if there's any insight to be shed, but to no avail.

    And considering I'm one of only 3 people on Earth who gave a shit about this series, I'm almost ready to accept that fact that I'll never know what happened to those missing scripts...

    According to Tom Brevoort on his "New Brevoort Formspring" page on Tumblr, those were fake solicitations made to heighten the surprise that they were killing off Wonder Man at the end of Force Works #1, so there were never any missing scripts.

    Really?? That's the first time I've heard this! I'm actually surprised they would go to such effort for a D-lister...

    Danger Unlimited by John Byrne. I got totally got up in the 4 issues published back in the '90's, then nothing. Getting a bit obscure I really liked Giffens's 8 issue run of the Heckler, which ended very abruptly. Getting really obscure I remember the indy comic "Empire Lanes" written, drawn and (I believe) self published by artist Peter Gross from the late '80s. I think this ran 4-6 issues, and I enjoyed them greatly. Anybody else recall any of these?

    Well, call me Mister Two, then, because I enjoyed the series, too. A lot. I miss Jones' writing. Wonder whatever happened to him?

    Mosaic was a really good title, another nice effort by Gerard Jones.

    I can't think of anything he's done (at least from the Big 2) beyond Justice League America, which ended in '96.

    Anyone here had picked up Burlyman Entertainment's Doc Frankenstein by the Wachowski bros and Steve Skroce? Amazing art and storytelling (and a lot of humour, ah the story of God in issue #6). That is always the first series I am thinking about when it comes to unfinished business (perhaps not totally as Burlyman website still lives and breathes).

    The Fleming and Von Eeden issues of Thriller are utterly fantastic. So ahead of their time. It nosedives when they leave the title. The follow-up team had no idea what the book was supposed to be.
