The Punisher: Judge, Jury, and Executioner

Edited by Matthew McEinry, Alicia Goodman, Ryan Cassidy, and Robert G. Weiner

 

With Netflix’s The Punisher being released in November 2017, it is apparent that a character like the Punisher has a certain kind of widespread appeal. The Punisher was played with great acclaim in Netflix’s Daredevil Season 2 by Jon Bernthal. There were, however, three previous Punisher movies of varying quality dating back to 1989. None of the previous Punisher films did blockbuster business, although 2004’s The Punisher and The Punisher War Zone (2008) were successful on home video. 

Systems and Knowledge: Scholarship, Ecology and Mind in Science Fiction

Science fiction is a genre inherently replete witha multitude of systems. From computers, robots, cyborgs and androids to human-animal studies, ecological systems, management practices and (agro-)industrial systems, science fiction has portrayed a variety of different and sometimes interlocking sets of physical systems. Ideas of knowledge generation and systematisation are also central to the genre, from the social and hard sciences, art, language and communication, right through to the systematisation and dissemination of knowledge.
