If Frank lived in the Philippines, he'd probably appreciate his job getting a bit easier, but I think for the most part, he doesn't give a shit about politics.  He has his own goals to achieve.

From what I understand, there's a ludicrously low burden of proof under Duterte. Basically, someone just has to accuse you of being a drug dealer, and the death squad comes for you. That's what I hear.

Unless the Punisher has changed from how I remember him, that's not enough evidence for even him.
Truten forever!

Shit, I knew it was bad, but I didn't know it got that bad.

Reminds me of the French Revolution. Or East Germany. Or any totalitarian regime, really.

I'll say one thing for it, it sure as hell is exciting.

He's killed child pornographer before so he can be flexible from time to time.

There were some thieves based on the cartoon "Lupin the Third" that had killed a security guard when they got caught one time, said something about how initially he wasn't going to bother with them because they were just thieves but after that made it his business to track them down.

I'm not totally sure how he deals with non-violent drug dealers, I'm not totally sure those exist in his universe.

Shit, I always knew there was something weird about that gang but I wasn't aware of Lupin III when the story came out.

It's from the graphic novel when Punisher hooks up with some Japanese assassin clan. ("The Punisher - Assassin's Guild")

That's a bit of a plot waste.  Punisher tracking down darker expies of Lupin and his crew would make for a good story arc.

This came out years ago when 99.9% of North Anerica didn't know who Lupin was. It's a true Easter egg. Crazy Jo Duffy was probably stoned and put that in for her own chuckles.

It was a pretty cool graphic novel as well. The art was different but good, and it was one of those rare stories where Punisher compromises his black and white view of the world, as the assassin clan only went after bad guys. Also one of the less common stories in that Punisher teamed up with someone.

Wiki says Jorge Zaffino, but I can't recall anything else he's done. I read this when I was too young to care about any creator who's last name wasn't Shooter and who's title wasn't Editor in Chief.

If I remember correctly, this is also one of those rare stories where Frank knocks boots.

Well; if someone wanted they could just have the Samurai Guy do some Samurai-Voodoo to keep himself from dying and call an ambulance.

I mean; aside from just creating some new near Analogues.

Mary Jo Duffy was a huge manga/anime fan for years before it became mainstream in the West.  During her run at the end of Marvel's original Star Wars comic, she named two alien races after famous manga-ka (the Hiromi and the Nagai), plus had Lando go in disguise as Captain Harlock.
