Punisher: Trial of the Punisher TPB [2013]

   

PUNISHER: TRIAL OF THE PUNISHER TPB
Frank Castle arrives at a police station with a body of a dead district attorney. As the trial begins the defense brings in their witness Matt Murdock. Castle asks for the trial to be pushed to the middle of next Wednesday. Castle takes the stand and reveals the district attorney was taking bribes. He has a video confession which he wants to view along with everyone else. The Punisher escapes while distracting them with the video and tying his attorney and the judge up. He plan was to kill someone he has been tracking for 5 years and the only way to get to him was through going to a trial.

The first issue was drawn by Leinil Yu while the second was Mico Suayan. This two issue special costing a whopping $8 bucks could have been spent elsewhere with better plotting. The second issue was better than the first one since it was meant to set everything up. This story would have been better if it was a single one shot issue.
