    “The Punisher is a 1993 beat ’em up arcade game developed and released by Capcom. It stars the Marvel Comics antihero The Punisher (Frank Castle) and co-stars S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury as the second player’s character as they embark on a mission to kill the crime lord The Kingpin and bring down his organization. While following the same general formula as Capcom’s previous beat ’em ups, the game has a range of usable weapons and a comics-style presentation.” – Wikipedia

    This is a magazine ad for the Sega Genesis home video game console version of the game, released in 1994.

    The large tagline at the top of the ad uses Crackhouse. The Capcom logo at bottom uses ITC Korinna Heavy, with a blue stroke around it, see the dedicated post on Fonts In Use. The Genesis logo uses Copperplate Gothic. The Punisher logo is likely hand-drawn.
