The pencils of The Punisher vol 5: The Slavers by Leandro Fernandez were great as always. And they were perfectly complimented by the ink work of Scott Koblish and the coloring by Dan Brown. Great lighting and angles, nice lines and a perfect harsh and gritty feel. The lettering by Randy Gentile was fabulous. He used a great font and the perfect font size. The placement and directional guidance were exquisite – even on pages with heavy dialogue. The writing by Garth Ennis was, of course, amazing. In fact, this might be the most brutal volume yet from him. The story is captivating. I mean, damn, you really hate those scumbags. Not that any of Punisher’s victims are all that likeable, but these guys are the scum of the earth. This means war!!
There’s a human-trafficking supplying local New York brothels with fresh young sex slaves. One victim, Victoria, reaches out to Frank Castle for help and the Punisher reaches out to The Slavers in response. But these scumbags aren’t like anybody else who has come into Punisher’s crosshairs. These guys are willing to go to war on the streets like no one before them. But Frank is about to show them what going to war really means. No one knows war like the Punisher and now he’s bringing it to them.
