Marvelette Missives – The Punisher

Marvelette Missives – The Punisher

If you’re into comics, especially of the street level, not necessarily super hero variety, you’ve heard of Punisher. You may even have watched some (or all) of the new Netflix series.

Marvelette Missives – Slugfest

Whether you’re a fan of the tv shows, the movies or the comic books themselves, you know about the decades-long rivalry between Marvel and DC. Yes, they are obviously competitors in the same market, but it’s always been a little bit more than that. The products they sell may be the same on a basic level, but there’s always been a “mine is better than yours” attitude between the companies and the fans of their work.
