I also hope this Omega crossover with Spidey and DD brings attention to Rucka's Punisher run cause it's good material.
He is writing good street wise stories, while balancing the spandex crowd of the MCU.
A big part of me wishes Marvel had allowed Moon Knight to partake in this, perhaps be issue #13, done by a fill in even then started with a new creative team at #14. Done what DC did with Aquaman 12yrs ago when that relaunch arc of 12 issues tanked. They didn't cancel they book they made a big marketing push about the creative change, the title went to issue #60 after that.
Punisher, Spidey, DD and MK are always good together imo.
"Freedom is the Right of ALL Sentient Beings" - Optimus Prime
a factor with this though is MK is based out of Los Angeles now and all the omega effect crossovers are in New York
It looked even worse when you consider that the other two Big Shot titles were $2.99.

WEEKLY COMIC BOOK REVIEW
I have the first volume of this series pre-ordered, and have been excited for it since day one. Can't wait to read my first book by Rucka... but I'm still tradewaiting, so that can't be true. >_<
BPRD # Cable # Cyclops # Iron Man # Hellboy # Punisher # GOTG # SCUD # Thunderbolts # Venom

I'm certainly not the first fan to call 20,000 cancellation point a "policy" and I apologize if I've mis-represented myself or Marvel.
What can Marvel do to get me to buy The Punisher? They can make the story cross over with one of their best books, Daredevil. Oh wait...
But seriously, it worked. My OCD prevents me from just picking up the x-over issue (because god forbid I don't understand 100% of what's going on) so over the past couple of weeks I bought #1-9. Haven't actually read them yet, but I will do so before the Omega Drive story.
