    Default Please be as good as Ennis

    This article makes me excited again for the Punisher. The last story line (Girls in White Dresses) was boring and pedantic. I fear no one is going to be able to match Ennis' take on the character though.

    If anyone could do it, it'd be Swierczynski. The guy's got a pedigree in crime fiction as long as my leg.

    Swierczynski has done a great job with Iron Fist and I'm looking forward to see what he does with Punisher. I don't think he will be Ennis, but I think he'll do well in his own right.

    Lest we forget, Swierczynski is currently writing two monthly titles. He's also already published one Punisher one-shot that I seem to remember enjoying rather much. I'd say he's more than just a novelist at this point.

    A few issues of IF doesnt make him a comic book writer. Thats unfair against all the writers in the bizz that worked many years to get their chance.


    He is a semi famous crime writer who has done few comic books thats all.


    Im not saying he is bad or anything he wrote the one shot with Randall i liked. Im just saying he is still a novelist trying comic books.

    I think the differnce, I think, is that Ennis didn't write crime stories. He wrote war/spy stories (usually but not always) dressed up as crime stories.

    Ennis wrote about a soldier. Swierczynski writes about a vigilante.
    'The marquis. Well, you know, to be honest, he seems a little bit dodgy to me.'
    'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."

    I've really been digging Duane S. "Forces of Nature" wasn't that great, but it cost five bucks and didn't have a plot, so I'm sure these issues will get him more mention.

    I think Lacombe's Punisher is weak as hell, though. To me Frank is Dolph Lundgren or Dorian Yates, not Chris Meloni.
