Episode 67: The Punisher

Welcome to Journey Into Misery, where I explain complicated comics characters, continuity and concepts to the patient and perpetually perplexed Helena Hart.

Ahead of his upcoming appearance in Marvel’s Daredevil series, we dig into the psyche of one of the archetypal anti-hero, The Punisher!

You can listen to JOURNEY INTO MISERY a number of ways, including Libsyn, iTunes or Stitcher. Alternatively, you could just click play on that little button below.

On Twitter, Kieran is @KingImpulse, Helena is @Hachiee and the official account of the show is @JiMPodcast.

We have a Patreon to cover the hosting costs and hopefully be able to put out more shows that last longer. If you enjoy what we’re doing and want more, please take a look at the rewards we’ve got and consider signing up.

Bonus episodes

Every month on the Patreon, we do a few bonus episodes that supporters get advance access to. We wanted to make them available to everyone though, and some people have told us they want to support the show in a less linear fashion, so they are available for pay-what-you-want on Gumroad.

It’s important to us that they are available to everyone, and please feel free to take every one of the bonus episodes for free. However, if you do want to contribute to the show in any way, the option is there.

Image Gallery

As I go through the podcast, I bring up images to show Helena what a character looks like. You can follow along with this image gallery.


We’ve started doing monthly video episodes of Journey Into Misery, as well as irregular Let’s Play style videos.


We have a Facebook now, where we can keep in better contact with our listeners, and ask you guys questions about upcoming episodes.

  1. I hate to ask a stupid question here, but what does “Spacker” mean? I read that run of Punisher, and thought it was odd that Dave was so dedicated to his nickname, but I didn’t know it meant anything (yup, I’m an American).

      1. Huh. That is definitely not in common usage here. I guess the closest thing we have is “Spaz.” Oddly, in my hometown there is an aging punk scenester who goes by that name, which is I guess pretty similar to Dave’s usage.
