Is the Punisher Coming to London’s East End?

My old man said follow the tank. And don’t dilly dally on the way…

Saw off the barrels, we’ll have half-barrels of fun…

I’m forever blowing away muggers, pretty muggers in the air…

There are all sorts of songs associated with Cockneys and the East End of London that could benefit from having a bit of Punisher in them. And maybe we’ll be getting our chance.

Because although the upcoming Punisher series by Matthew Rosenberg and Szymon Kudranski debuting (finally) this week is meant to be set in New York, according to all the upcoming solicitations, the preview of issue 1 shows a certain Baron Zemo pressurising the British government to wave through a Roxxon development in London’s Docklands. Think Canary Wharf, the Millenium Dome, and the BBC soap opera Eastenders.

Clearly, any kind of Hydra-supported development will have to be taken down in upcoming issues. Might Frank Castle spare the time to stop by the Queen Vic and see to any remaining vestiges of the Mitchell criminal empire?

Of course, he may have a certain British Punisher waiting for him

Punisher no longer has the War Machine armor, but he retained his newly acquired taste for big game, and he’s hungry for more. However, the paths to such perilous pursuits are fraught with dangers bigger than any Frank has faced before, and this lone wolf could use otherworldly help on his way up to the world stage. MATTHEW ROSENBERG continues pushing the boundaries of the Punisher, and now joined by acclaimed artist RICCARDO BURCHIELLI (DMZ, Northlanders), this is the book Punisher fans will be talking about for years to come!
