Punisher War Journal #10
Issue(s): Punisher War Journal #10
...and use the Abrams and a few other tanks to fight Sniper in the Apache.
When Sniper destroys most of the tanks and nearly makes it across the border, Punisher taunts Sniper to get him to return, and paints a skull on his tank so that Sniper knows who to shoot for.
Sniper fails to kill the Punisher but does make it back across the border to East Germany, although the stolen helicopter is destroyed and Sniper is presumed dead.
The point of this story seems to be to allow Carl Potts to namecheck some military hardware, although in re-using Sniper, Potts is building up a continuity for this book in a way that Mike Baron has seemed to be less interested in on the other Punisher title.
Quality Rating: C+
Chronological Placement Considerations: I'm placing this before Punisher #23 just to put some space between the Punisher's coincidental run-ins with the Shadowmasters in Punisher War Journal #9 and Punisher #24. The stories are really context free.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
I believe this is the beginning of the long collaboration of Jim Lee and Scott Williams. I do like Williams but think that Lee looks even better when he inks himself.

This is what TV Tropes calls an Unintentional Period Piece, since East Germany's Communist government collapsed a few months after this story was published.
