I'm only confused about the marketing behind this project. Sure it's an okay comic, but if Archie readers are going to be introduced to Marvel, ought it really be through the Punisher? Are Marvel readers likely to not be familiar with Archie comics and be introduced to them through this comic?

That's a good question, one I didn't even concider. My only guess would be that, because it was 1994 and everything was selling, this would be a one-time collector's item that Marvel fans, Archie fans and speculators would have bought, figuring it might be worth something someday.
