    I won't bother telling you that you need to read this series, because you've already heard that a million times and if you aren't then…well I can't say what popped into my head so let's move along. Daredevil #21 is an excellent comic on it's own, but it is also a conclusion to an amazing story arc. The next story should be a heck of a lot of fun, this is comics at it's finest. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Dec 19, 2012

    We may be getting hit with a lot of great Marvel NOW! titles but all that is unnecessary when it comes to Daredevil. Mark Waid is owning this series by delivering great issue after great issue. The mystery of Daredevil's recent problems is slowly getting uncovered and we see some interesting revelations here. There's also the repercussions to deal with from Foggy's decision to seek outside help in dealing with Matt. Chris Samnee and Javier Rodriguez make a great story a visual treat. The set up for next issue's big clash was a little odd but based on what we're seeing here, it's going to be another crazy ride. Read Full Review

    Buy this book. Not only will you get a well-written conclusion and an upgrade of sorts for a previously D-lister villain, this book will also answer the question "What do Wolverine and Doc Ock have in common?" Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Mike Dec 19, 2012

    This is a pretty great wrap-up to the Coyote arc, but it still leaves one question unanswered – who sent Coyote after Daredevil to begin with?I love the art, love the storytelling, it is fresh, exciting and new and the artwork is the most appropriate in terms of what goes on in in Matt's head.

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Dec 19, 2012

    Naturally, the issue looks a-freaking-mazing. Chris Samnee is a machine, delivering incredibly and gorgeous artwork at an inhuman pace. His classic line work and layout style suit Waid's storytelling like a glove. Plus, somehow, against all logic, he manages to make The Spot look terrifying. Coyote was creepy enough, but The Spot takes it to a whole new level. Samnee defines amazing and sets the standard to which all comic book artist should be judge. He's that good. Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Mike Cecchini Dec 21, 2012

    And as a fun little post-script to the story, we even get the first appearance of the much-hyped Superior Spider-Man, which should certainly get fans talking! Read Full Review

    Once again Mark Waid has delivered a nice solid book in this series which was a great way to end this story arc. Waid is great at writing issues that end one arc, while leaving so many questions and options left for him going into the next arc. Samnees' art was once again very nice. The understanding he has with Waid is superb, and it feels like he was meant to draw this book. That is a term I use a lot but I really think it is true when Samnee is involved. I cant wait to see where this book goes in 2013. Read Full Review

    The bulk of the surprises were used in the last couple issues, but this one has more than enough gripping material to make it a worthy read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Dec 24, 2012

    "Daredevil" #21 is a great execution of a storyline that knocks a few things off the list while leaving some to tease for later. It sets up a little to come and it leaves our lead hero with a need to change -- or face more problems. This issue feels thin but the perfect execution of the final two sequences more than make up for it. Mark Waid uses the monthly schedule on this book to hit effective end of issue beats and continue to propel the series forward. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Dec 26, 2012

    The ending not-withstanding, Daredevil #21 provided an exciting end to this Coyote/Spot story arc. Mark Waid continues to challenge Daredevil in unique ways that has him utilize his powers to look even better. At the same time, Chris Samnee's art style helps elevate all the action involving Daredevil and the dramatic scenes between Matt and Foggy. This is just another winner in a long line of excellent issues from Waid's Daredevil. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Walt Richardson Dec 21, 2012

    “Daredevil” hasn't been quite as good this year as it was in its previous one, and this issue is kind of indicative of its whole year. “Hawkeye” has taken its place as the book that anti-big two readers make sure they aren't caught reading — now it's just another pretty good superhero book. The issue's end, though, hints that things could be getting back on track, which can hopefully restore the series to its former glory. On the plus side, though, at least Chris Samnee has been proven to be more than an adequate follow-up to this book's stellar launching artists! Read Full Review

    Daredevil has survived a weak storyline over the past few issues. Lets hope that clears up quickly. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 22, 2012

    I like the idea of Spider-Man guest-starring in the next issue, but with what writer Dan Slott is doing with the character I'm pretty sure it's going to be far less enjoyable than the Spidey & Black Cat crossover from earlier this year. For fans. Read Full Review
