This week, War Rocket Ajax is proud to welcome the Eisner Award-winning writer Greg Rucka to the show! Following last week's release of The Punisher #1, he talks to us about what makes Frank Castle work, his awesome runs on Detective Comics and Wonder Woman, his new webcomic and why he hates the Joker -- and you can listen to it right here at ComicsAlliance!War Rocket Ajax v.2, #9: The Dead Don't Need Music, with Greg Rucka
On sale now is the first issue of Marvel Comics' all-new Punisher series. Written by the venerable Greg Rucka (Batwoman: Elegy, Queen & Country, Gotham Central) with gorgeous artwork by Marco Checchetto and colorist Matt Hollingsworth, the series diverges from Frank Castle's recent adventures in the exhilaratingly insane (i.e. Frankencastle) and returns the Punisher to his ultraviolent best.
