This summer marks twenty years since J.K Rowling published her first Harry Potter novel in the U.S. Since then, readership of the novels has expanded continually; there has never been a more successful book series (450 million copies sold and counting) or a more culturally prominent literary phenomenon. “Muggle” is now in the Oxford dictionary, and still today the series holds a venerable place on the New York Times Bestseller List.

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.
