The NZA Posted April 12, 2003 Share Posted April 12, 2003 Ennis is looking to make Punisher a lot less funny, and a lot darker in the coming year. He's starting it off with Born, a 4-issue Marvel Knights mini-series of veteran Frank Castle's 3rd tour through Vietnam special ops, before losing his family. The series gets off in June, and Ennis had this to say of it: There's not much humor in this at all. This is one of the bleakest and most brutal things I have ever written - possibly the bleakest and most brutal. There's no grotesque characters with their faces all fucked up, there's no people dying amusingly in toilets. There's not even anything much in the way of a humorous one-liner tossed in by a character. This is a pretty nasty goddamn book. It's pretty much a vision of hell.
