PUNISHER #28-29 (1989-1990)

In Punisher #28 and 29, he takes on Dr. Doom.

Mike Baron does a great job at the dialog between Kingpin and Doom, who are trading enemies for the Acts of Vengeance event.

I don’t really like Punisher fighting giant robots–at least I don’t like it most of the time.  But as far as “mainstream” Punisher stories go, this is one of the better ones.

Baron also does a great job at the endgame.  After some Avengers appearances, we learn that it wasn’t Doom after all, but Kristof–the boy who thinks he is Dr. Doom, but really isn’t–and we see Doom’s love of art as his downfall.  These are both recurring themes from Fantastic Four.

Creators: Mike Baron and Bill Reinhold
