From Marvel: “PUNISHMENT: PART 2 OF 4 A DARK WOLVERINE/FRANKEN-CASTLE CROSSOVER! The rematch you begged for: Punisher vs Daken! A few months ago, Wolverine’s son hunted down Frank Castle at the behest of a vengeance-seeking Norman Osborn and sliced him to ribbons. But Frank’s feeling better now, and he’s ready for round two – as Franken-Castle! Everything you ever wanted all in one comic – in the most brutal, down-in-the-dirt, blood-soaked, slugfest the law will allow per page — guaranteed to kick you right in your damned face, in mighty Marvel fashion, naturally.

In stores July 28, 2010.

Wolverine cameos on the final page, but it is worth it to see Franken-Castle beat the snot out of Daken…
