- Synopsis not yet written
• Valery Stefanovich has put himself on a collision course with The Punisher.
• The roots of this issue go back to Afghanistan in the 1980s where Valery spent time in the Russian Special Forces and some of the most horrific things you can imagine. Things that CHANGED him.
• Frank and Valery have so much in common, but that never bodes well, does it?
