Punisher Issue 7: The String

It was a busy week and so my only work on my ongoing Punisher obsession has been to aggregate the reviews.  Once again, the majority are positive, but there are definitely some dissenters out there.  I loved issue 7 and thought it brought more depth to the story and the characters.  I look forward to more from this series.

Here is what others thought.  [additional links will appear in the comments]
