If you are the type that prefers to err on that negativity, then today's post is not for you. Punisher Vs. Bullseye is AWESOME. The action is over the top, the gore is relatively discreet, the wit is quick, and the plot is rich. If you like a little action with your humor, this 5 issue series is a must read for you. This comic is just like a Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner cartoon. Bullseye is the coyote, setting traps and trying to catch that protagonist, the Punisher. The crazy plot and dysfunctional supporting cast makes for a perfect storm of fun.
Punisher and Bullseye features the two aforementioned characters prominently, but truthfully, Bullseye steals the show. The incredibly dark and seriously homicidal Bullseye is the perfect foil for the violently unstoppable force of the Punisher. Bullseye kills without remorse, but his body count is often mostly made up of civilians. He's not afraid to "waste" bystanders in an effort to accomplish his goals. His goals are usually driven by financial gain. His skill set is bounty hunting, extortion, murder, and general dirty deeds. His power is marksmanship to a perfect degree with nearly anything. The first person that he kills in the comic is executed by a quarter thrown from the top of a skyscraper, while he sadistically watches through the telescope. Killing people comes easy to him and that's what makes his fight against the Punisher so interesting. The Punisher is unstoppable. Noses are broken, blood is shed, and buildings destroyed in this knock down drag out fight that stretches across 5 issues. Bullseye is a humorous, murderous, and ambitious villain with his eyes on all the prizes that this comic has to offer. Mobsters are pawns for him. He is written perfectly in this series.
