Published Date: May 92
Title: "The walking dead"

Review/plot:
Another pointless look at the Punisher's time in Vietnam. This one deals with Frank discovering a scam in which some soldiers trick others into paying them money to get them back to the US, but instead take them out into the jungle where the Viet Cong kill them.

The art is an improvement over the previous Punisher Invades The Nam issues. But the story seems equally unnecessary (to be fair, this is only the middle part of a 3 part story).

Quality Rating: C-

Historical Significance Rating: 2 - shows the Punisher in Vietnam

Chronological Placement Considerations: Takes place during the Vietnam War. This story is actually told by a random American soldier to his wounded friend, so it may not even be accurate and Frank Castle's part doesn't necessarily take place after his appearance in The 'Nam #52-53.
