Punisher War Zone #24
Issue(s): Punisher War Zone #24
In the meantime, Outlaw has made it to the US...
... he gets some weapons for himself.
His accent is absolutely off the wall.
Right nearby, the actual Punisher is seen by a young girl.
He hitches a ride on her (i'm assuming) aunt's van back to her dad's house, and hides in her treehouse. The girl, Amy, is "special".
And her dad is a small town sheriff who eventually figures out that she's taking care of what he assumes to be a vagrant.
Meanwhile, Outlaw tails the Cullen gang, but VIGIL is tailing Outlaw, and it devolves into a shooting match between VIGIL and the Cullens. A lot of these subplots, though, don't really go anywhere, i guess because each book focuses on a different subset of characters and by the time we get back to the next issue of this series, too much time would have passed for a direct continuation. It's not super-important, though. We get a general sense of what all the players are up to and the mindless violence quota for the issue is filled.

Do we ever get an explanation for exactly what happened with the destruction of Manhattan Tower, how the Punisher survived, and what was up with the fake body?

The Punisher didn't seem to do anything special to survive. He seemed willing to accept that he might die, and i guess it was just luck that he didn't. The body is just one of the goons whose head was smashed by an I-beam. He put his costume on it to perpetuate the assumption that he was dead.
