    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jul 10, 2013

    Can this series do no wrong? It's always a wonderful treat when a writer mixes things up and gives an issue with a completely different feel over the previous one. The focus switches from action to emotion and character development but that doesn't take away from the spectacle this comic is. It's no secret how versatile a writer Mark Waid is and month after month he continues to show it. Javier Rodriguez picks up the art reigns and continues the tradition of the spectacular art we've been getting in this series. If you enjoy comics, you should be reading Mark Waid's DAREDEVIL.

    Daredveil #28 is yet another example of why this series continues to be probably my absolute favorite book on the market right now, despite my great love for Dark Horses books and DC more generally. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jul 13, 2013

    Like all the best superhero comics, this recent Daredevil run has told "big" stories while focusing on the intimacies and quiet moments that really matter. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jul 10, 2013

    Waid continues with the threads he has established (Foggy's cancer, Matt's new advice-giving law practice) while still managing to make this feel like a new beginning. If you were waiting for time to jump into Daredevil, now is the time. You get everything you need here to enjoy one of the best comics in recent years. Seriously, you are out of excuses. Buy this book and dream such dreams as you never thought imaginable. Maybe that's over selling it? Probably not, it's pretty amazing. Read Full Review

    In fact, every facet of the story is executed with brilliance that not only highly entertains, but makes you think about the situation as a whole as you take in all of the awesomeness that is the twenty eighth installment of Daredevil. Read Full Review

    Filling in on art, while Chris Samnee takes a much deserved break, is series colorist Javier Rodriguez. Not only is Rodriguez one of the most skilled colorists in the game, but he is also a very capable artist. His ability to emulate the style of Samnee is baffling, it truly takes a scrutinizing eye to see that the comic has been drawn by a different person. And since most of you know my thoughts on Chris Samnee, you know that that is a HUGE compliment. But once you notice that Rodriguez is the artist, you notice the subtle differences that make him unique as an artist, nowhere is this more evident than in this panel layout, which features a ton of shifting of focus and different angles and sizes of shots. It seems thatDaredevil is a title that attracts greatness, because no matter who is involved in the creation of the series the result is that this comic continues to have a stranglehold over Marvel's top spot.

    Marvel Disassembled - Mike Jul 11, 2013

    This was a great kick-off to a new arc. What it lacks in action it makes up for in backstory and characterization. Nate's wardrobe for one. I mean, that bright orange suit tells me everything I need to know about Nate Hackett. So great. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Jul 15, 2013

    This book continues to be the high water mark of storytelling in the Marvel universe, and if this introduction is anything to go by, then the next two years are going to be another magic ride. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jul 16, 2013

    The issue starts off strong, but gets a tad sluggish in its second act due to a questionable amount of exposition. Still, a site better than most of the other mainstream books out there. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Tony Couto Jul 11, 2013

    Daredevil #28 continues to bring pathos to the series without weighing it down. A lot of it is indebted to the stellar narration, and plenty of funny moments are had with the characters Waid makes us genuinely care about. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Whiting Jul 10, 2013

    Does Matt believe him? Will he take on the case of his former tormentor? I won't say here and spoil all the fun (unless you mouseover the blacked out text of course), but let's just say that you'll be blown away by the actual court scene. Well, maybe not as much as a certain somebody… but, well — just go read it and find out. 8.5 Solid, crisp art by Javier Rodriguez.Clever, subtle displays of Daredevil's powers.Nice flashbacks of Daredevil's father and also his bully.A little devoid of action.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Jul 15, 2013

    Mark Waids Daredevil continues to be in a class of its own, a fact proven with Daredevil #28. Its incredible how much content Waid is able to pack into a single issue. Even when introducing a new character to Daredevils mythology Waid does not slow the issue down. Instead he uses the new character, Nate Hackett, to provide Matt Murdock yet another challenge for him to face. We even treated to some great scenes between Matt and Foggy as well as Matt and his father, Jack Murdock. Add in the artwork from Javier Rodriguez and you have yet another winner for the best comic book on the market. If you arent reading Waids Daredevil I highly recommend changing that right away and picking up the trades and single issues right away. You will be in for quite a treat when you do.

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Jul 13, 2013

    This issue is an example of the best kind of comic book revisionism: taking a known incident from a character's background and rather than totally reversing it, instead finding an interesting new angle to explore that sheds light on the character and his/her background. Overall, this is a very good jumping-on point for new readers. It doesn't required knowing much about what's happened in the first two-plus years of Waid's run but still offers an intriguing story thread to develop. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 12, 2013

    "Daredevil" #28 is a fun issue that's drawn beautifully. Waid's scripts continue to entertain, and as much as I like Samnee's art on the series, I'd love to see Rodriguez be the regular fill-in artist for whenever Samnee needs to catch his breath. Another solid comic in a dependable series. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 18, 2013

    The issue ends in bizarre fashion as the Sons of the Serpent make sure Hackett doesn't give away any privileged information about their society by having the judge shoot the defendant in the middle of the courtroom. I was thrown off a little by these last few panels, but I trust that Waid knows where he's going. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Great issue as always. Flashbacks and dialogue makes the reader sympathetic to everyone involved. Sets up a very interesting story arc.

    Javier does a great job filling in for Samnee. Story is still as awesome as usual. My favorite part about Waid's writing is that you feel a lot happens in each issue. After reading Bendis style decompressed writing for so long it's nice to have a bit more fast paced issue. Also great cliff hanger and great set up for the next arc.
