• It all comes down to this - the penultimate chapter! Matt Murdock's made a deal with his own personal devil, and unless he can outsmart the strongest, toughest opponent he's ever known, no one walks out alive!

    I reallywish they would put all the issues out at once, because waiting for issue 18 is going to be torture. I want to know what comes next. I want to know who makes it. I just want to keep reading. Read Full Review

    An example of comicbook storytelling at its finest" when words, pictures, tone, and momentum are all working together to create a gripping story about characters we've come to care about. The non-linear storytelling keeps us on our toes, as does the extended fight scene as our hero seems outmatched. The twist comes not as we expected, but from a different character who disrupts Daredevil's plan as well as the readers' hopes, making us anxious to tune into next issue to see the outcome.

    It's another brilliant job of intricate, twisting plotting by Waid and dynamic, expressive action from Samnee. In other words, it's another issue of Waid and Samnee's Daredevil. Read Full Review

    Waid and Samnee's Daredevil may be ending soon, but Daredevil #17 shows that this run isn't going down easy for the audience or for Matt Murdock. Read Full Review

    Daredevil #17 did exactly what it needed to do as the story has escalated to a point where you don't know how things will turn out for Matt Murdock and his supporting cast. Mark Waid did a great job making sure that everything that happened here elevated the threat that Kingpin imposes on Daredevil's life. With how things were left off I have no idea what will happen at the end of this story. All of this only helps to build on the anticipation I have as a reader to get my hands on the next issue as soon as possible. Read Full Review

    Regardless of the scare factor not quite being here, there's still a ton to love about Daredevil, especially because of the gorgeous artwork that, honestly, we superhero fans don't really deserve. Samnee is a beast, and seeing this kind of virtuoso work makes me hope he's got something incredible planned once he and Waid exit the Man Without Fear. With the end nearing, Waid and Samnee have Matt Murdock right where they want him, and with that in mind, this issue is still definitely worth a look. Read Full Review

    "Daredevil" #17 is another winner from Waid and Samnee, and it's frustrating to know that it's coming to a close. His time in San Francisco has been inventive and different and -- while the book will probably reflect the "Daredevil" Netflix show when it returns -- I'll certainly remember this era with great fondness. Waid and Samnee are the creative team to try and beat. Read Full Review
