    Oh come on! Marvel's been serving us death, fear and now slash-gore this time around? With Wolvie in yet another title.

    I think I'll pass. I really don't like those "Against the Marvel Universe" types of stories.

    Isn't this basically exactly the same story Mayberry did with the Punisher, except that time everyone was a vampire or whatever?

    ...no no that's a good move :
    for whom who don't know Campbell' art still, this **** will definetely establish him (her?) -because of Wolverine- in every readers 'minds, and then he (she ?) will eventually ends as a regular penciler for NEW AVENGERS or SECRET AVENGERS or DAREDEVIL, so that's okay..

    This look like fun i'll definitely be picking it up...The thing I like about these type of stories is that anything can happen, because it's not taking place in the 616. So when it's done well, it can lead to less predictability.

    Default I already read this.

    It was called The Punisher Vs. The Marvel Universe. Or vice-versa. I enjoyed it, but I don't need a second-helping.

    I'm already getting a late appetizer with the Captain America: Hail Hydra zombie Nazi stories.

    But wait...Mayberry says this is "returning to THAT universe"...so perhaps this is the story of how Wolverine tried to make a stand, and failed--leaving the job for The Punisher? If so, I'm on board.

    Actually yea, now that you mention it, that could be interesting.

    I thought it was just gonna be a rehash of that story but with Wolverine in Frank's place.

    I'm down with this because I'm a Wolverine completionist and I enjoy Mayberry's writing, but I do have to ask, why is this issue $3.99? Is it because it features Wolverine? I was definitely under the impression that new mini-series were going to cost $2.99 unless it's a big event comic like Fear Itself.

    marvel likes to lie about things like these.
