Punisher Co-Creator Campaigning to Reclaim Skull Logo From Police in Support of BLM

There is little doubt that The Punisher is seen as an antihero who fights for justice. Ironically, Frank Castle's trademark skull logo is also being used by the police who are now seen in a negative light following the death of George Floyd. Not surprisingly, Gerry Conway wants to change that and is campaigning on social media in an effort to reclaim the logo in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Conway, who is one of the creators of The Punisher, recently took to Twitter calling on young artists to help him in his cause. Take a look at his tweets below.

"I'm looking for young comic book artists of color who'd like to participate in a small fundraising project for #BLM to reclaim the Punisher skull as a symbol of justice rather than lawless police oppression. Respond and follow so we can DM," Conway wrote.

Conway was quick to point out that although they will not be paid for their work, the project is set to be a huge help to the BLM movement.

"To be clear, this little project is open to anyone who wants to contribute their time and effort. It's not a paying gig, it's intended to raise funds to support BLM. I hope to use multiple artists with a variety of styles and artistic approaches," he wrote.

Conway concluded his message on a powerful note.

It was previously reported that people are petitioning for Disney to stop the police from wearing the Punisher logo. Although Disney has yet to comment on the petition, it looks like Conway is determined to do just that.
