This sword and sorcery title by scribe Paul Levitz and artist Steve Ditko epitomized the credo "Be careful what you wish for." The series' anti-hero was a nameless wanderer whose dreams of becoming a warrior brought him first slavery, then worse. Dgrth, the demon lord of warriors, answered the boy's prayers and granted him unparalleled combat skills, plus a hunter's gifts and name - in exchange for his soul. As Stalker the Souless, the youth came to realize that smiting his enemies brought him no joy, for he had been stripped of his humanity. From that point, the young hunter's target became the demon that made him. Stalker ran for four issues.
