Justin ‘The Owl’ returns to the show to chat about a sentimental favourite, and the very first time The Punisher encounters Moon Knight!
PHASE: WANING WAXING CRESCENT
SEGMENT: LUNAR-PICK CLASSIC RUN REVIEW
THE PUNISHER ANNUAL VOL. 1 # 1 – ‘Knight Fight’
Released September 1989
After witnessing a seemingly normal customer satiate their needs with ‘hunger by gerbil’ Marc Spector investigates which leads him to a mysterious organisation named, ‘Save Our Society’.
Across town, The Punisher tracks down a small time criminal who has been knocking off eldery women’s social security checks for drugs and it’s not long before Frank is also led towards the shady, ‘Save Our Society’ – a NFP organisation dedicated to curing drug addicts.
Both Moon Knight and Punisher investigate one of the ‘Save our Society’ clinics in Long Island and upon finding The Punisher’s intended target, Ralph Newton, things turn ugly. The two are attacked by serpentine humanoids as Ralph himself turns into a snake like being but the Punisher makes short work of him.
Regrouping back at Moon Knight’s mansion, the next target is Borwardt Estate on Long Island, where both Madam Viper and a Dr. Tyrone are stationed and where Save our Society are based. More battles with serpent men ensues but this time Viper manages to drug the Punisher with what appears to be the same drug turning all the addicts into snake people. Frank goes mad, shooting anything and everything as Moon Knight continues to battle his way through in pursuit of Viper.
Viper manages to make good her escape and Moon Knight clashes with the drugged Punisher but manages to subdue him with a nifty stint of mesmerism.
Frank wakes up at Grant mansion, grateful to Moon Knight for rescuing, but he soon leaves to continue his ever raging war on crime.

Justin and Rey have fun with this one – especially with how Moon Knight gets involved in the first place; and how he manages to calm down the Punisher…you’ll need to read it (and listen to this episode) to believe it!
Shine those idols, and dust off the cape….IT’S TIME TO GET YOUR KHONSHU ON!
