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. Well…Maybe not from “any” prior writer–this plot, at a minimum, is reminiscent of the kind of things Steve Gerber would do.
Keith Pollard’s art is a little too “clean” for a streetfighter. Not loving it here.
