Characters Appearing: Punisher
Issue(s): Punisher #76
Punisher has actually been in Hawaii before, but there's no connection with that story. He's hunting a crimelord named Uncle Jerry, who has connections to the Yakuza.
The Punisher is unknowingly helped by a rival crime family, a mother and daughter team. They pose as the Hawaiian god Pele (who has young and old forms), and in fact half-convince the Punisher that he's Kamapua'a, Pele's lover.
The MCP actually treat this as an actual appearance of Pele (who does appear in a couple of future issues) but it's pretty clear from this story that the Pele here is just part of their scam.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: N/A
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Larry Stroman's style is unsuited to Punisher IMO.

True, that scene with him shooting the dude in the back looks like it's from What The-?!
