The net's best podcast for all things Frank Castle

    Garth Ennis Power Hour #1

    Garth Ennis Power Hour #1

    We've taken the time off to rebrand! This is The Garth Ennis Power Hour podcast, now and forever.

    Introduction – Jake and I catch up and I catch PTSD at the barbershop.

    [14:36] News – We discuss Punisher TV news and groan under the sociopolitical ramifications of a comic book man's skull logo. Also, here is that ComicPop interview we mentioned!

    [54:25] Mail Call– We get asked how the Punisher could take on modern day issues.

    [1:18:30] Bullet Points – We continue reading Revenge of the Cosmic Ghost Rider #5 and then wash the taste out of our mouths with some Punisher 2099.

    [1:52:54] Garth Ennis Power Hour – Jake and I review Sara, the WWII Soviet sniper comic from Garth Ennis, Steve Epting and Elizabeth Breitweiser. It's a beautifully drawn story from a side of the war we don't hear enough about. Seriously, if you like what we have to say about it a few minutes in, just skip the rest of the segment and buy it.

    [3:11:00] Discharge Papers – Jake recommends a boatload of anime and movies, and I talk about the UPS future man game where you avoid ghosts.

    Punisher Body Count: Episode 131

    I'm going to apologize ahead of time for the delay and the anime talk. Just skip to flashbacks if you need to. No one will blame you.

    Introduction – Jake and I discuss how we've adapted to the summer 2020 Hellscape and how I started a beef with a west coast rapper.

    [25:35] News – We discuss the comics market slowly revving up again.

    [31:05] Mail Call– Some mail inspires us to potentially create a new segment.

    [38:10] Bullet Points – We continue reading Revenge of the Cosmic Ghost Rider #4 and Ravencroft #3 because Frank is a guest star in it for some reason.

    [1:12:05] Flashbacks – Jake and I talk about the seminal MAX arc The Slavers, a seminal MAX arc covering issues #25-30. I'm really proud of the discussion Jake and I had here.

    [1:147:10] Discharge Papers – Jake recommends the book Mistress T and Beastars, and I talk about a play you were probably forced to read in high school.

    Punisher Body Count: Episode 130

    Due to quarantine, I got back into video editing and made a promo for this episode. Check it out!

    Introduction – Like every other content creator, Jake and I discuss how we are surviving the apocalypse.

    [32:20] News – We discuss the collapse of the comics market, and some new upcoming guest appearances!

    [49:00] Mail Call– We catch up on some mail we missed last episode (sorry) and talk about how we would handle writing Punisher 2099.

    [1:17:25] Bullet Points – Jake and I finish off Punisher: Soviet #4 and #5, and continue reading Revenge of the Cosmic Ghost Rider #3 as Frank goes through a galactic mid-life crisis.

    [1:53:52] Flashbacks – Due to fan demand, we check out Terror Inc. #6 and #7, a bittersweet story about an awesome character in a lackluster story.

    [2:16:48] Discharge Papers – Jake and I get on the same page with High Rise Invasion and I recommend Bloodshot, because that is where we're at in this contentless hellscape we now call earth.

    Punisher Body Count: Episode 129b

    Punisher Body Count: Episode 129b

    Sorry for the lateness on this one, folks. Still, it's one that's worth the wait.

    Introduction – Jake talks about his romantic night out and I discuss a new hobby that's tearing my family apart.

    [27:18] News – We talk about a cool Cosmic Ghost Rider figurine mod and then commentate the fight of the century: Archie vs. NotPunisher!

    [56:46] Mail Call– We get a call from Blackstone and reminisce on our favorite show moments.

    [1:14:15] Bullet Points – Jake and I cover Punisher: Soviet #3 and Revenge of the Cosmic Ghost Rider: Revengeance: Revelations #2. They are both ok.

    [ 1:48:15] Flashbacks – We cover Spider-Man #32-34, where Spider-Man has no idea why a villain whose life was casually ruined by him would also be mad at him. Frank also probably bangs a secretary at the Daily Bugle.

    [2:19:40] Discharge Papers – Jake recommends some anime and I change pace by watching a good movie called Knives Out and encourage you to do the same.

    Punisher Body Count: Episode 129a

    Brandon Forgione is a young filmmaker and the creator of the 8-episode fan series Punisher: Uprising. Brandon stopped by to tell us what inspired him to create the show, the trials and tribulations of creating an indie fan series, and how they made a shoestring budget into something a step above the typical passion project.

    Introduction – I talk about why hunters are the true heroes of America and Jake talks about how his daughter is an ascended child.

    [21:00] News – We get an interesting rumor about the Moon Knight show and take stock on the show's previous year. Don't forget to call in at (347) 878-6474.

    [35:10] Dane and Jake Get Christmasy – No spoilers here!

    [55:45] Bullet Points – Jake and I cover Punisher: Soviet #2 and Revenge of the Cosmic Ghost Rider: Revengeance: Revelations #1. Both do their jobs well.

    [2:01:08] Discharge Papers – Jake recommends you check out Jake Oliver, and I tell you about Klaus and 3 Kingdoms, but most badass "historical" drama ever.

Fun Show

These guys are the Punisher experts. I was originally looking for more talk about the Punisher. But Jake and Dane really grew on me. They are funny and have some great conversations.

I do skip around a decent amount because I have not read most of the Punisher comics. Bu the series I have read or shows they talk about I really enjoy. I loved their take on The Last Jedi. Their personal stories are really good too epsecially once you get to know them.

I would say the shows could use more editing and would benefit from shorter tighter episodes. But I don't think they care which is perfectly fine. I think they do the show because they enjoy it and that is very respectable.

Keep doing your thing!
