Bill Sienkiewicz 2001: Senty / Hulk
Color: José Villarrubia
Bill Sienkiewicz 2001: Ultimate Marvel Team-Up #6
Color: Jung Choi
Although the Ultimate Marvel Team-Up series was ostensibly a Spider-Man title, this three-part arc is all about the Punisher and the web-head appears only sporadically. The Ultimate version of the Punisher eliminates the Vietnam soldier aspect of the character and recasts him as a straight cop who is attacked by his crooked compatriots, who is arrested after killing two of his assailants.
Sienkiewicz’s scratchy linework is the perfect aesthetic for this gritty story about dirty cops and murder. These pages introduce the character and provide his backstory in a manner that’s concise without being rushed or forced.
