Welcome Back to Mine Multiversity: A Marvel Podcast! Each episode we’ll be looking at Marvel books, old and new! We discuss fun Marvel comics, Marvel news, and Marvel history. A wild and crazy history it often turns out to be.

Make Mine Multiversity is a twice-monthly podcast that premieres on the first and third Friday of every month. That’s how often Frank Castle gets stabbed in this comic.

What can we say that the words “Franken-castle” can’t convey? This run is bonkers and strange with excellent art and…well, we don’t know if we’d call the writing/plot GOOD but it’s certainly unique. We do a dive in the career of Rick Remender at Marvel and beyond, figure out what makes the Punisher an enduring and fraught character, and yell at Disney for being spineless, corporate COWARDS with regards to white supremacist/cop usage of the logo. Of course, we also talk about “Frankencastle.” This book is so strange y’all. We can’t even tell you.

Reading along? The issues are “Dark Reign: The List: Punisher” #1, “Punisher” (2009) #11-21, and “Dark Wolverine” #88-89. If you’re reading on Marvel Unlimited, know that “Punisher” was renamed “Franken-Castle” for issues #17-21. Trade readers can find the whole run either in “Punisher,” Vol. 3: Franken-Castle or the “Punisher by Rick Remender” omnibus. We also talk about the first ten issues of the run but there’s no real need to read them.

Next time, we’re seeing if Phase 5 can’t redeem itself with “Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 3.” You didn’t think we’d miss the chance to talk about the Guardians again, would you? Galactus forbid.
