Locked and loaded with a bevy of bonus material, this deluxe hardcover collects PUNISHER MAX VOL. 3: MOTHER RUSSIA and PUNISHER MAX VOL. 4: UP IS DOWN AND BLACK IS WHITE.
In MOTHER RUSSIA, Nicky Fury's got an assignment that needs doing. It's the kind of suicide mission any sane person wouldn't ponder for a second. And there's only one man for the job: the Punisher. Searching for a deadly retrovirus whose sale on the black market could bring the world to its knees, Frank Castle penetrates a Russian nuclear silo...and comes face-to-face with the Mongolian!
And in UP IS DOWN AND BLACK IS WHITE, mobster Nicky Cavella finally figures out how you take down the Punisher. How you get under his skin. How you send Frank Castle over the edge. But when Cavella's scheme unleashes a wave of violence that rocks New York to its core, other predators start to come out of the darkness. There are scores to be settled. Blood to be spilled. When the world turns upside-down, will the killing and carnage ever end? Can even the Punisher go too far...?
Collects PUNISHER #13-24.
