I found this to be a quite enjoyable read. It's unusual to see a Punisher story with a lot of bright colours & set during the day. Also it's not set in some dirty city, this time it's set in real hillbilly territory. It's interesting watching Frank take on the deranged hicks (sure they're stereotyped to the max [pun intended]) but that's half the fun of it.
There is a short story at the end, Little Black Book, and this shows the Punisher in a completely different light. It's all dark & Frank is out to kill and there are some great shots of him looking very imposing & fearsome.
Overall, the art is pretty good (really good in the LBB story) and the writing is very good. It's not up to Ennis standard but it is a good enjoyable read.

In just the same way Commando (the movie) is a guilty pleasure for movie fans, so too is 'Welcome to the Bayou' for me.

Like commando it's hardly shakespeare. But its bloody, fun, short & sweet and sadly cliched. A bit like if michael bay made Deliverance. Not amazing but you might just find its a nice change from the epic yet heaving going nature of say. . . The Walking Dead.

THE GOOD:
Fun splattery violence
Punisher back to his resourceful self
Does not take its self too seriously
Suitable gritty art work.
Nica add on story at the end.

THE BAD:
Too short
An over all silly premise that has been done better before
Some silly frat pack characters who are just there to die.

Overall, silly fun.
