Welcome back, Frank

(No, sorry, this isn't about that series. That's a long way off. But it is one of my all-time favourites.)

As I previously noted, the Punisher was the first break-out character from the Spider-Man titles, having steadily grown in popularity ever since his first appearance in Amazing Spider-Man #129. He spent the next dozen years largely confined to guest appearances, mainly in the Spider-Man titles, but with the occasional magazine appearance or limited series. Then in 1987 he was finally granted an ongoing series of his own. It was soon a massive success and spawned not one but two additional ongoing series.

I've previously looked at Essential Punisher volume 1 which carries most of his appearance from his first dozen years. Three further volumes have been published, covering his first ongoing series. It's now time to have a look at them.
