Last year’s New York Comic-Con brought us our first look at Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil, and while Jessica Jones understandably pulled some spotlight this year, Matt Murdock is back with some punishing new enemies. Find out what we saw in the first official Daredevil Season 2 footage from NYCC 2015!
Punisher - Page 2
You guys, the Punisher wears a tactleneck. That easily makes him the best-styled vigilante this side of Hell's Kitchen. Well, at least as far as the Sideshow Collectibles version of the character anyway. Sure, body armor is nice (and is included as an accessory to throw on), but when you're out there on the cold New York streets gunning down lawbreakers other heroes would merely hand over to the police, there's honestly no better way to do than in a tactleneck. That's just science.
Originally shown off at San Diego Comic-Con, the Punisher sixth-scale figure from Sideshow Collectibles got a more formal unveiling this week. I suppose it's just in time for New York Comic-Con, where the figure will likely be on display at the company's booth (which is nestled by Archie, IDW and WeLoveFine). Back in July, all we really knew about the figure was that it existed and looked impressive in prototype form. The new details shared today give us a much better idea of what to expect not just from the figure, but from Sideshow's Marvel 1/6 scale line in general, too.
With October just around the bend, that means it's time for cooler weather, cooler costumes and the biggest comic book convention on the east coast. Yes, New York Comic Con is bearing down on us faster than we're prepared to deal with it, but that's okay. We'll make do. In addition to incredible amount of stuff happening at the show, there will be a lot of great stuff up for grabs.
As busy as Funko was at San Diego Comic-Con, its plate looks to be equally as filled at NYCC this coming year. This week, Funko is unveiling all of its planned exclusive items, with a new batch coming every single day. While the availability of each is likely to be a bit more open than it was at SDCC, these things will still be limited. If you're hoping to get any, definitely plan ahead and around any and all panels you hope to make it to this year.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and if that's the case, Marvel seems determined to make DC and Batman blush, because the number of copycats, clones, and knockoffs of the Dark Knight that Marvel has created is bordering on the ridiculous.
We don’t yet have any official photos of The Punisher from Daredevil Season 2 (seriously, they’re casting Luke Cage, and we don’t even have Jessica Jones photos), but that isn’t stopping Jon Bernthal from showing off Frank Castle’s punishing tools. The Punisher is packing serious heat in a new photo shared by Bernthal, and Hell’s Kitchen should already be running scared.
Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn.

This week, we're taking a look at Marvel's most famous gun murderer and second most famous knife murderer, Frank Castle, the Punisher! Find out Frank Castle's connection to an outer space robot, the disturbing contents of his diary, and weird things Frank has turned into, both good and bad, as well as several other equally interesting facts.
Daredevil Season 2 has been relatively quiet over the last few weeks, most attention focused on the second of our Defenders, Jessica Jones, but Jon Bernthal’s Punisher just stole the spotlight in a huge way. Watch Frank Castle kicking criminal ass in punishing new set photos from Daredevil Season 2!
Daredevil Season 2 has been too busy filming for a presence at Comic-Con 2015, but if any man could punish Matt Murdock for such a crime, it’s Frank Castle. Get your first look at Jon Bernthal as Marvel’s deadliest vigilante with Daredevil Season 2 set photos of The Punisher!

There’s been plenty of debate over what role The Punisher will take in Daredevil Season 2, whether Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle will act as an opposing vigilante, or perhaps Matt Murdock’s new big bad altogether, but might Marvel point the way? The actor has shared a few Punisher comics as part of his research, which might also reveal The Kingpin’s role in Daredevil’s 2016 return.
