For the first time in his long and bloody career, Frank Castle may be beaten. After facing the Kingpin's hired gun Bullseye, the Punisher has suffered more than just broken bones: Bullseye's attack on his psyche may have hurt him the most. Frank is questioning his mission, and that doubt has crippled him. Locked away in prison, Frank can do nothing but stew in his own thoughts of failure. Word has spread of the Punisher's incarceration, and whole cellblocks are polishing their shivs to greet him. As his enemies draw near, Frank has two choices: he can fight until he drops, or he can lie down and die. Does this old soldier have one last battle in him?
