  • I personally like to read anything from the Marvel MAX imprint since they are over the top violent in a way that makes them totally laughably ridiculous at times. Marvel MAX are basically Mature only or Adults only version of Marvel comics stories. And I think Garth Ennis's Punisher was probably the one that stand out the most. You can also check out Marvel Knights which are less over-the-top with gore and violent content.

    I pulled a portion of list from Wikipedia here:

    Black Widow: Pale Little Spider (2002)
    Blade (2002)
    Cage (2002)
    Deadpool Max (2010)[8]
    Fury (2001)
    Fury Volume 2 (2012)
    Howard the Duck (limited series, 2002)
    The Punisher: Born (limited series, 2003)
    The Punisher
    Thor: Vikings (2003, limited series)
    U. S. War Machine and U. S. War Machine 2.0
    Wolverine MAX (2012)
    X-Men: Phoenix - Legacy of Fire (issues 2 and 3 of a 3 issue mini-series, 2003)
    Zombie (limited series, 2006) and Zombie: Simon Garth (2007)

    If you like Deadpool then go for Marvel MAX edition's first issue and see if you like it.

    • Yeah or considering just how much of an asshole and bad writer Garth Ennis is you might not

      Just to be honest like I said, I really just liked his version of The Punisher character compared to the other variations, editions or version of that character. I haven't read enough of his other stories and other characters. But that's just me.

      Ennis isn't the exclusive writer for all of the MAX or Marvel comics that were created for the more mature and adult audiences, in other words Rated-R styled Marvel comic stories.

    • Thanks for MHO!
