PUNISHER Co-Creator Supports Black Lives Matter With "Skulls for Justice" Campaign

Tired of the way that one of his character's symbol are being used, The Punisher co-creator Gerry Conway has launched a BLM fundraising campaign using Frank Castle's iconic emblem...

The Punisher is a ruthless, murderous vigilante with no regard for the law. It's part of what's made him one of Marvel's most popular characters. With such a large pool of fans, it's not surprising that his symbol has been adopted by both good and unsavory people and organizations alike over the years.

The controversial skull emblem has been seen adorning the clothing and uniforms of civilians and law enforcement (ironic due to the fact that Frank Castle isn't really a fan of police) during the recent protests.

Gerry Conway, The Punisher co-creator, has decided to speak out and reclaim The Punisher's logo with a Black Lives Matter fundraising campaign called "Skulls for Justice".

"For too long, symbols associated with a character I co-created have been co-opted by forces of oppression and to intimidate black Americans," said Conway. "This character and symbol was never intended as a symbol of oppression. This is a symbol of a systematic failure of equal justice. It’s time to claim this symbol for the cause of equal justice and Black Lives Matter."

Conway has been working with several talented artists to create a line of shirts featuring new renditions of The Punisher's logo. Three are currently available for purchase, with a new tee set to drop every two days.
