Marvel's go-to guys for all things cosmic are taking it to the streets in "Heroes for Hire," a new series launching in December. Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning will be writing the series, as confirmed in a new press release from Marvel that follows days of teaser images featuring the team's eclectic membership, which includes Iron Fist, Moon Knight, Ghost Rider, Elektra and the Punisher (although there may be additional heroes on the payroll, as suggested by the teaser images you can see after the jump).As previously mentioned, the new ser

Peter Milligan has been bouncing in and out of superhero comics for years, whether in long runs like the fan-favorite "X-Statix" or brief one-shots like "Moon Knight: Silent Night." in this week's "Punisher MAX: Happy Ending" one-shot, he's bringing his particular brand of identity-focused writing to bear on Frank Castle, featuring art by Avatar Press staple and relative newcomer to Marvel, Juan José Ryp.

With this week's "Punisher Max" #5, Jason Aaron and Steve Dillon wrap up their first incredible story arc with the conclusion of a brutal fight to the death between the Punisher and The Mennonite, an ex-killer who retired to the life of a simple farmer but came back to kill Frank Castle using only the tools his religion allows.
The end res
When they announced the "Frankencastle" series where Punisher (a.k.a. Frank Castle, ba-dump) becomes some kind of monster, I wasn't expecting the tagline "Rest In Pieces," to be quite so literal.
The Punisher has looked better.
Marvel's most recent teases for the fall have Frank Castle -- well, presumably Frank Castle's corpse, looking a bit reanimated by way of unglamorous technology. It's like
