So I was going through an old box of comics the other day and I stumble upon two Punisher comics I forgot I even had. The Punisher Armory volume 1 & 2. Has anyone ever seen these? If so do you know if they ever produced more than these two? Volume 1 came out in 1990 and Volume 2 came out in 1991.
I started flipping through the pages and it covers all types of different weapons that The Punisher used. There are pictures, descriptions, and stories about each weapon on every page. It really is a very cool comic. Page 1 of volume 1 starts off with a classic Uzi. Blowguns, pistols, sniper rifles, assault rifles, shotguns, and a whole mess of sub machine guns are covered. Even a robotic turret and the Punisher's Battle Van are covered. What really surprised me was that everything that is covered in the comic are actually real weapons. There wasn't one weapon that I couldn't find on the web.
So to get to the knives. Even though there aren't a whole lot of bladed weapons covered I was happy that there were some. A ballistic knife was in there and The Punisher explains that the spring is wicked strong and they are really hard to aim. Also covered was the Ka-Bar Marine Combat Knife, the Gerber Mark II, the SOG Seal, Kershaw's Military Boot Knife, SOG's SERE knife, AMK's Quicksilver, Spyderco's Hunter, Chris Reeve's Sable III, Moeller's Viper, and Becker Knives' Machax. Vietnamese Tomahawks and throwing stars were in there as well.
Anyone out there who is a fan of weaponry and a fan of comics should try and find these somewhere. They are very very cool and I highly recommend them.
