Excerpts

BELOW: Since experiencing Dagger's soul-cleansing light daggers, the Punisher's informant Mickey Fondozzi has sincerely repented of his criminal ways: Interestingly enough, the Punisher finds that Mickey Fondozzi's change of heart frustrates his own mission. Fondozzi was one of the Punisher's principal informants (or "snitches"). But now that Fondozzi has "found religion" (as the Punisher puts it), the man is no longer useful to the vigilante.
