Daredevil #9

While trying to solve the mystery behind the disappearance of several coffins from a local cemetery, Daredevil finds himself in the bowels of the Earth fighting the Mole Man and his Moloids.  Paolo Rivera, Joe Rivera, and Javier Rodriguez provide the most fascinating visuals for this rarely seen underworld; from the magma-illuminated caves, to the subterranean rapids, the creative team builds the perfect atmosphere to tell the story.  Mark Waid does his part as well by using inner monologue that serves multiple purposes: complement the art, bring new readers up to date so they don't feel lost, and project Daredevil's inner thoughts.  The issue also offers some insight on guest star Black Cat and her never ending walk along the fine line between good and naughty, a very creepy moment courtesy of the Mole Man, and trouble for Daredevil.  Excellent issue!
