Get Punished

In case you hadn't heard, my 4-issue run of FRANK CASTLE THE PUNISHER: WELCOME TO THE BAYOU is now available as a trade paperback. Punisher is a character I've always enjoyed and was my introduction to comic book writing. I'm especially flattered by the blurb on the cover: "Gischler's Punisher is terrific. More of this sort of thing, please." -- Garth Ennis. As most of you probably know, Ennis is the definitive Punisher dude. Man ... so cool. The trade also features my Punisher one-shot "Little Black Book." Remember folks, these are adult "MAX" titles, so keep them away from kids and pets.

Special thanks to artists Goran Parlov, Jefte Palo, Dave Johnson and the entire Punisher crew for making me look good.

Having read two of your books (Gun Monkeys and Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse), I was excited to see that you had started writing comics. When I saw that you were writing a story for Punisher Max (which may be my favorite thing Garth Ennis ever did- and that's saying a lot), I was even more excited. And you didn't let me down. The series had great themes and ideas, and you did something well that often looks silly in the hands of other writers- you made Frank Castle vulnerable for a while. Well done- I loved it. I can't wait to see your next project

Thanks, Aaron. That's awesome. Next crime novel is THE DEPUTY and hits in April.
