In this issue, Punisher takes a selfie, and then commits a serious felony.
He burns money!
Now why would a guy who, presumably, has to fund his own war on crime burn money? And he has to spend so much money on his James Bond type gadgets…
But he’s burning money to get in the spirit of the voiceover and concept of this story, which is that the U.S. Department of Defense is corrupt and wasting money. So Punisher goes undercover as an auditor from the General Accounting Office and, eventually, hijacks a nuclear sub.
It’s absurd. But I dug it.
