Daredevil Punisher comics

Marvel and Netflix’s first season of Daredevil – which is the first of many Marvel/Netflix projects – received an enormous amount of love from both fans and critics. The dark and sometimes shockingly violent drama revealed not only the origin of Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), but also his iconic adversary, Wilson Fisk/Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio). When the dust finally settled from the Man Without Fear’s first major battle, Kingpin was behind bars and the street level hero was finally wearing a costume similar to the memorable red one he often wears in the comics. Season 2 is already under production, and it’s adding two classic characters to the show: Frank Castle/Punisher (Jon Bernthal) and Elektra Natchios (Elodie Yung). The second season is currently scheduled to be released in 2016, and we want to make sure you’ve done your homework! So, we’ve put a quick list together of five stories that are absolutely mandatory before delving into season 2. Be sure to contact one of our stores to see if the following stories are in stock. If not, check our website!

But does this tale of ninja and samurai warriors deliver? For the sake of ease in weighing the good with the bad, it behooves us to make a list. (Spoilers ahead.)
