Marvel has announced a new Punisher series, Get Fury, by writer Garth Ennis and Jacen Burrows, that will bring back longtime characters Frank Castle and Nick Fury for a retro story set in the Vietnam War era, with Fury a prisoner of the Viet Cong and Castle sent by the CIA to assassinate him before his captors figure out how much he actually knows. The five-issue limited series will be published as part of Marvel’s adults-only MAX line, and the first issue will go on sale on May 1, 2024, with a main cover by Dave Johnson and a variant by Burrows.

“There’s a nice sense of things coming full circle with Get Fury,” Ennis said in a statement accompanying the announcement. “The editor is my good friend Nick Lowe, who handled Born back at the beginning some 20+ years ago, and just like that story this one sees Frank Castle as a U.S. Marine in Vietnam (in fact, it goes some way to explaining how he ended up at Firebase Valley Forge in the first place). As the two most violent men in mainstream comics, Fury and Frank work well together—just like they did in the Vietnam sequence of Fury: My War Gone By. All in all, if Get Fury turns out to be the last time I write Frank, I think it’ll make for a worthy farewell.”

Ennis first mentioned the story in a 2019 interview with the Lakes International Comics Festival (see “Garth Ennis Is Writing Two Punisher Series”), but at the time, he identified Goran Parlov as the artist.
