DAREDEVIL #242 (1987)

Titled, “Caviar Killer,” this issue features a working stiff who force-feeds a rich dude caviar until he chokes to death.  Once he gets a taste for it, he kills more reach people until Daredevil stops him.  And there’s a cult that follows him.

It’s a fairly simple tale, but it’s done well.  Nocenti’s scripts are a little wordy—and often a bit preachy—but they’re so vastly different from any prior writer’s vision of Daredevil that it makes for interesting reading.  Keith Pollard’s art is a little too “clean” for a streetfighter.

Creators: Ann Nocenti, Keith Pollard
