Daredevil #22

Writer: Mark Waid
Artist: Chris Samnee

Daredevil becomes the quarry of none other than the Superior Spider-Man in a self-contained adventure by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee. Otto Octavius -now possessing the body and abilities of Peter Parker- hunts the man without fear after being asked by an unknowing Kirsten McDuffie, who is concerned about Matt Murdock's already-fragile mental state. The fight between both characters turns out to be of much benefit for Doc Ock, who is slowly learning that it is not enough having his enemy's face, powers, and memories if he expects his ruse to work. Daredevil is the perfect man to teach him that lesson, and the way Waid writes it is fun, by making all the subtleties and small details count more than what's skin deep. Samnee and Rodriguez clearly have fun with the entire fight sequence, and it shows in their work. An upbeat issue that strongly contrasts with the final panel of the story.
