The First Appearance of Punisher from Amazing Spider-Man #129

Punisher should be an idiotic, overly simple character…But he’s one of my favorites.  And I’ve read his every single appearance.  But I only posted highlights as an “evolution of Punisher” series.  The posts are listed and linked below.
