“If society won’t punish the guilty, he will…Judge. Jury. Executioner. All in a day’s work”
The late 1980’s were a tough time for ‘Marvel Comics’ with the company & rights to its characters being owned by New Line Pictures. Easily the most popular of these creations and a corner stone of the ‘Marvel Universe’ was the anti-hero Frank Castle AKA ‘The Punisher’. Loosely based on the dark, gritty vigilante of the comics the Mark Goldblatt’s finished feature is not all bad & contains some moments of genuine ‘fan boy’ cinema with the all-action Dolph Lungren (well) cast in the title role. This original 1989 UK quad film poster is typical of the time and firmly puts the titular ‘Punisher’ in the spotlight. Originally folded (as issued) this looks and displays to excellent effect with impressive graphics and dark colour tones that represents a fine piece of collectible cinema movie memorabilia.
