Everyone remembers Peter David’s run on Spider-Man for The Death of Jeanne DeWolff, but he actually started sooner. His first Spider-Script was #103, a Leopold and Loeb story of a group of rich kids who decide that Batman is too scary, so they’ll fuck with Spider-Man. It’s classic Peter David: A story driven not so much by plot as by well-done dialog and characterization. It’s why I think of David as one of the most novelistic writers in comic books today.
