HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PUN!

Punisher by Moebius.  Wow.

On this day in 1973, writer Gerry Conway and artists John Romita, Jr. (who designed the character–complete with white go go boots) and Ross Andru (penciller for Amazing Spider-Man #129) debuted the antihero with an attitude.

Everyone knows Pun.  Here’s my favorite 11 Pun stories.  And here’s part 3 of my 3-part examination of Garth Ennis’ brilliant run on Punisher MAX, one of the greatest adult-oriented (but non-pornographic) comic books of all time.  (Parts 1 and 2 can be found at the part 3 post.)

And then of course there’s my ongoing examination of the evolution of the character.

Guess I really dig the dude.
