    Newsarama - David Pepose Mar 25, 2015

    There are a lot of new angles to the new Man Without Fear - so many that I feel it's more jarring than a simple change of address. And that's a bittersweet thing. There is a ton of room for Mark Waid to manuver with Daredevil's new status quo, but only a limited amount of issues left for him to do it. Will this open approach to superheroism continue post-Secret Wars? If so, I can only hope it's done with the same level and care that Waid and Samnee have done this issue. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Mar 29, 2015

    Daredevil #14 is yet another fun, intelligent and fast-paced issue of the series. With Waid being announced as the writer of the post-Secret Wars Avengers series, I hope that he gets to keep writing Daredevil as well, as he has been very good on it, along with his cohort, Samnee. With the sort of introduction of Jubula Pride, things are not slowing down, either. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Nate Stout Mar 27, 2015

    Waid has a clear understanding of Matt Murdock as a character. It will be interesting to see how Matt's new handling of celebrity will affect or be affected by his overarching depression that Waid has been exploring. With the beginning of this new arch, Waid once again asks what The Shroud's over all plan is. Waid's addition of Jubula to the cast presents a character with which Matt may have a completely new dynamic to flesh out. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 26, 2015

    Even with all the good will Mark Waid has engendered with his Daredevil run, this issue might draw the ire of some readers. Matt's quest to be true to himself and live a life without secrecy is taken to a new extreme here as he dresses in a flamboyant red business suit and begins merging his activities as vigilante and lawyer.

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Mar 25, 2015

    As tricky as it was getting here, this issue feels like a fantastic new start for this character, only without any of the renumbering that so often comes with that. Samnee and Waid feel like theyre putting their unique stamp on DAREDEVIL, and its an audacious but highly, highly worthwhile one. While its unclear exactly how long this will last, it appears that the ride will absolutely be one thats worth getting on and incredibly enjoyable. Heres to hoping it sticks around for a good, long time. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Brett I Mar 26, 2015

    While there were bits of this issue I didnt love, the ending had me DYING for the next issue. Things like outfit changes can be overlooked, and everyone needs to read this run straight away, before we all fall in love with the Netflix series. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Mar 27, 2015

    As longtime Daredevil fans will recognize, particularly with the Catholic themes that permeate the book, Waid is setting up Murdock for a long fall as he revels in his new status. This is a comic that has wallowed in guilt and responsibility and fear for decades and, though Waid has allowed the light into Murdock's life, he understands that this is a character whose very instincts make him gorge on whatever he's accepted; what was once an addiction to the darker parts of his own psyche has now become an addiction to the dopamine released by the acceptance that San Francisco has given to him. While it will be hard to watch this new reality fall around Daredevil, it will be breathtaking to watch him try to hold up the crumbling pieces. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Kalem Lalonde Mar 28, 2015

    It’s unfortunate that 2 weeks before Daredevil’s Netflix series debuts, we get one of the weakest issues of this series to date. However, this is still a good read. Mark Waid has set the bar so high that even when he’s not at the top of his game, he’s still good. I’m hoping that his swan song to this book will jump back up to the regular quality and I’m sure it will. This is just a small stumble on the way there. Read Full Review
