I've got to say, when he first took over for Tim on The Punisher: Frank Castle book, his art really didn't anything for me on those last few arcs of the series before the title reboot. But once those Punisher Max covers started rolling in, he won me over.

 

Just take a look at these from the "Bullseye" arc.

Also this Deadpool one is pretty great.

The last few Bullseye covers have taken it up a notch, but I don't care for Johnson's covers. At least not on the MAX title. I feel they would be more fitting on the regular title. With the exception of the last three, I don't feel there's enough grit. That being said, maybe his gears have changed. Like I said, the last three are the only ones I feel are up to snuff for Punisher MAX.

 

On a side note, is anyone feeling let down by Aaron? I loved his one-shot and Scalped is friggen amazing. Maybe that's where I'm getting let down. I went in expecting Punisher more along the lines of Scalped. That was the angle I was hoping Aaron would use. Still, he's doing better than most.

I still haven't gotten around to checking out Aaron's stuff. Hopefully I'll be able to pick up a TPB soon.

 

Here's another one of his Punisher covers he did.

I've been a fan of Dave Johnson since many years ago when I picked up issue 1 of a little book titled "Chain Gang War".

I've followed his work ever since.

 

I really loved what he did on SuperPatriot as well.

I like the older works. That last Chain Gang War cover is great. I'd like to see him do somthing with the Punisher in that style.

I also enjoyed a lot of the covers he did for 100 bullets. There were was some really great stuff in that run.
