The Punisher Vol 1 (1986)

The first Punisher series limited to 5 issues, and was originally to only feature 4 issues, but his story wasn’t quite ready to end. Featuring the Circle of Blood story arc. And amazing art by Mike Zeck. Due to the overwhelming popularity of this series, The Punisher earned an ongoing series beginning just months later. It can be argued whether this series is consider the first volume or a limited series. The overwhelming consensus on the internet consider this as the first volume.
