In January, Scott Gimple, one of the writers on The Walking Dead TV series, will be joined by artist Mark Texeira on a new Punisher miniseries, titled Punisher: Nightmare. The series will focus on a young man who comes back from war only to have his family killed by organized crime. The main hook here is whether this soldier will wind up as Frank Castle’s greatest ally or villain as this tale parallels his own.

The Punisher will also square off against a new villain named Nightmare, who has the ability to actually grow stronger the more he's injured.
