Remember the Jonestown Massacre? Innocent bystanders murdered by Uzi bullets shot by drug dealers at rival drug dealers? Cyanide in Tylenol? The Punisher does. He's the symbol of a society unable to care for itself anymore. A free man sacrificing himself to mend a broken social contract. Of course, modern Punisher is more nihilistic. But the idea that a sane man could make the choice to be a suicidal hero? We all want someone else to do it. That is why he only exists in fantasy.
These comics are all in good condition. None will grade 9, but they are all well cared for.
