Synopsis for "Welcome Back, Frank"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Punisher Vol 5 #1.

The issue begins in the aftermath of a drug deal broken up by the Punisher. In a rare show of mercy the Punisher lets off the only survivor with a warning. However, immediately after the survivor brags about his survival and his plans to sell the drugs anyways. Punisher hasn't completely left, comes back, snaps his neck, and blows the warehouse to smithereens.

Frank Castle is revealed to be living in a run-down apartment under the pseudonym 'Mr. Smith', alongside a group of eccentric but well-meaning neighbors. From here, he secretly runs his war on crime.

At the city morgue, local crime figure Bobby Gnucci, member of the Gnucci crime family, inspects the corpse of his recently killed brother. In a surprise attack, the Punisher wipes Bobby and his small team of guards out handily. It seems the Punisher's current plan is to take out the Gnuccis one by one, his next target being Carlo Gnucci.

The Punisher catches up with Carlo at the Empire State Building, taking his date to see the view from the top. Punisher follows him and tying him up, tosses him from the top and watches him splat against the pavement. The Punisher is back in New York City and there will be hell to pay.

Synopsis for "The Devil by the Horns"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Punisher Vol 5 #3.

In this issue, there are some newspaper writers talking about Punisher rather philosophicaly. The words one uses are poetic. The Punisher is planning to kill yet another gangster when Daredevil shows up to stop him. They have a brief talk before fighting hand to hand. Punisher thinks to himself that he is no match for Daredevil and never was despite that he was in special forces. Anyway, Punisher came prepared this time. He blasted noise to make Daredevil to lose concentration. Punisher then beats down Daredevil until he's unconcious. But, it doesnt stop there. Punisher chains Daredevil to a chimney. When Daredevil wakes up, Punisher hands him a gun. They get into yet another argument about when its OK to kill a criminal. Punisher tells Daredevil to shoot him or he will kill the gangster. Daredevil begs Punisher not to but Punisher will not yield. This goes on for a while but, eventually, Daredevil tries to shoot Punisher. Punisher says "no firing pin" and then wastes the gangster.
