Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Following on the heels of their successful first book "Punisher: Kingpin", writer Jason Aaron and artist Steve Dillon return with the sequel "Punisher: Bullseye", where Frank meets one of his most difficult villains, a deadly psychopath who'll stop at nothing until he gets his man.

For fans of Garth Ennis' 90+ issue run on the Punisher, Aaron does a fine job of living up to the high standard Ennis set for the character. This book is... disturbing to say the least. Aaron writes Bullseye as a truly terrifying monster, not just doing heinous things like slaying entire families, but psychologically torturing them for hours beforehand. And why? Because Bullseye is trying to get into the head of Frank Castle so that he can kill him.

Bulleye's thinking leads to some interesting questions on Frank's origins - if "The Punisher" was formed on the killing fields of Vietnam, how could he possibly have been the loving father and husband it's claimed he was when he returned? How could such a skilful soldier survive the intricate traps of the Vietcong but be so sloppy as to be in the firing line of some thugs in a park? Was "The Punisher" formed in the hail of gunfire that killed his family or would Frank have become "The Punisher" whether or not his family was killed and did it just give him an excuse, an out from the mundane life that faced him?

The action is non-stop as Bullseye and Frank stalk each other while Frank's hiding places become discovered and the police turn on him. Dillon's artwork is wonderful - I'm beginning to view him as the best artist to draw this character's stories. Aaron's writing is getting better with each book.

Format: Paperback
This storyline runs through PunisherMax issues #6-11 from 2010, collected as Punishermax: Bullseye (Punisher Max (Quality Paper)). This series by Jason Aaron & Steve Dillon is set in an alternative universe to the regular Marvel one, as the Punisher gets his own private Ultimates-like universe, in order to tell the story of Wilson Fisk and how he became the Kingpin, as the Mafia decide enough is enough after thirty or forty years of the Punisher. Previously, the Mafia have set a trap for the Punisher by giving Wilson Fisk their money to create a fictitious `kingpin of crime' as bait to draw the Punisher out into a trap. Well, I'm sure we can imagine what Wilson does with the money, and he uses the Punisher for his own nefarious and entertaining ends to really become the Kingpin of Crime.

This chapter sees Wilson Fisk hire the assassin Bullseye to kill Frank Castle. Unfortunately, Bullseye has his own way of working, and spends a lot of time "getting inside Frank's head", which necessitates a lot of killing, maiming and torture, more than even Fisk can stand. Bullseye gets closer and closer, picking of Frank's resources as he goes, until Frank is finds himself alone and almost unarmed against the entire NYPD and Bullseye. Bullseye discovers some dark secrets about the death of Frank's family, and there is a climactic rooftop showdown at Fisk's headquarters from which only one person walks away from.

Steve Dillon has mastered the dead eyes and cheerful grins of the criminals who inhabit the world of the Punisher, and he usually guarantees a blood-drenched five-star story of sadistic and casual killing, and this volume is no exception, though Bullseye manages to take us even further into the depths that we have been before.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By S Stewart on 8 Aug 2011
Format: Hardcover
This is volume 2 of Jason Aaron's run on PunisherMax, collecting #6-11 and, for me, is more than a match for anything Garth Ennis wrote in his classic Max run.

Aaron's take on Bullseye is the most twisted and psychopathic I've ever read, the action is non-stop and Dillon's art is up to his usual high standard.

Essential reading for any Frank fans, although you may want to read PunisherMax: Kingpin Premiere HC first, if you haven't already done so as it contains the first five issues of Aaron's run.

Jason Aaron is a fine fit to continue on with Ennis's run of the punisher,i urge anyone who's being enjoying the series to stay for the ride as for me personally it just keeps getting better.
As always Steve Dillon his art work is impressive and it's good to see how he's developed rank over the years.

The man behind the bullets 24 Jun 2011
By Sam Quixote - Published on Amazon.com

Dillon's artwork is wonderful - I'm beginning to view him as the best artist to draw this character's stories. Aaron's writing is getting better with each book. It's not as brilliant as Ennis' is but it's similar to it and I found his portrayal of Bullseye to be both revolting, intriguing, funny, and scary, showing his ability to write a multi-faceted character. Frank remains as deadly as ever but Bullseye's ponderings on Frank's past show a vulnerability and a different side to the character previously unseen.

Fans of "The Punisher" will find a lot to enjoy with this book - it's more exciting and fun than most action films and it's a great read. Highly recommended.

Ennis finally has a proper replacement 25 May 2011
By P. Dye - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Jason Aaron, I love you.

Your weaving of Ennis' plotline into your own (starting with the PM: Kingpin GN) is goddamned incredible.

As for everyone else? Buy this book. Buy "Kingpin" if you haven't already.

Where to start on this one without spoiling anything...first off, it connects with a little of everything. There are many obvious ties to Ennis' storyline (including one that'll make your blood run cold at first - hint: red haired little girl), and even one, if you read very closely, connected to the "Butterfly" and "Little Black Book" (though the latter reference is *very* minor) one-shot published a while back. This GN actually has comparatively *little* of Frank compared to Bullseye and Fisk, and doesn't suffer for it, either, Aaron makes up for it by turning Bullseye into the Frank "surrogate" for the bulk of the book. In short, you finally see in this book what you've wondered about since picking up your first Punisher comic book..."what happens when Frank's pushed too far?" Also, have a magnifying glass handy to more easily read the "shocker" at the end.

If there was one disappointment in this novel it's the lack of respect and time paid to The Mennonite from "Kingpin." He was an interesting character and I was hoping to learn a bit more about his origins, since such a big deal about "the man he was" was made in "Kingpin."

Again. buy this book. I want to see what happens next. especially if this is leading up to the events in "The End" from the "First to Last" Ennis collection.

a disappointment 6 Jun 2012
By mr. hudson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
i'm unimpressed by this collection. i'm not a big jason aaron fan, but i do like steve dillon and garth ennis' run on punisher max ranks among my all-time favorite. he seems to get the punisher like no one else; the darkness balanced by the justice meted out. unfortunately, jason aaron is no garth ennis. this storyline seems extended by senseless filler focusing on how psychotic bullseye is. i get that he's setting a tone, but a pointless tone in my opinion. maybe jason aaron fans will enjoy this, but i didn't. he doesn't hold a candle to ennis, but then again, who does?
Maybe the best Punisher arc ever 18 May 2013
By Brian B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm an unabashed Ennis devotee when it comes to his Punisher work. I heard great things about Aaron's run on the character and just happened to pick up the fourth book when I found it cheap. I was underwhelmed (it was solid but definitely no competition for Ennis). I decided to give Aaron's Punisher a second try when I saw this book for under $10. I am so glad I did because the Bullseye arc is everything you want from the Punisher. Dark humor, villainous enemies for Frank to take on. I honestly cannot recommend the arc highly enough. I'm not a huge fan of Dillon's artwork in the Max universe, preferring the more realistic art that permeated Ennis' run on Max (I enjoy Ennis and Dillon's collaborations in the regular Marvel universe far more). Nevertheless, the artwork works in the Bullseye arc in a way I feel it doesn't in both the Prison and Homeless arcs from Aaron.

This is really a must buy if you have any interest in the Punisher.

The entire Punisher MAX series is great. Its gritty, no nonsense and too the point. Great stories, awesome art work and one of my favorite characters written in a very adult fashion. Highly Recommended!
