Why? Well, the characters and the story and the art... Need I say more? Yes, the landscapes, the volcano, the choppers, the tanks, the fights, the kynetics, the dialogues, the facial gestures... the action.
This is a vibrant crime comedy, to put it mildly. A gathering of characters, from US military, Italian mafia, CIA, DEA, FBI, right up to an ex-Irish priest, latinamerican "presidentes" and 3rd world military. And let's not forget about the porn actress, and the Ron Reagan's statue. And an operatic story.
Charming Barracuda can be overpowering in just about any plot, and yes, that's the point of this book. It is about Barracuda and his deranged world, masterfully portrayed from the dark comedy angle -which resonates a lot with our world and its not very well hidden secret plots.
Of note, the lines between writer and artist are totally blurred. Who created this? Ennis or Parlov? Are they really separate entities?
Yes, and no. This is a book crafted by two natural-born European comic-artists, Parlov and Ennis. If you know your dime, then go get it.
And chances are, seven years later, you will still be enjoying it.
Darrick Robertson's pencil's, and Tom Palmer's ink's bring this chapter in Frank Castles life to us in a vivid way without being overdone. They manage to make you hear the chop of the huey's in the background, the rain on the canopy's, and the distant warning of what is coming to this doomed outpost.
This is definitely worth the read... even if you're not a Punisher fan.
