    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder May 21, 2014

    This is a superhero book for people who love superhero books. It is one of the purest examples of the traditional kind of story done exactly right, and while it may not be breaking new ground, its instead building a palatial estate on the ground thats already there. Don't mistake thinking you've read this story before, even if you're experienced in the genre, Waid and Samnee are teaching old dogs incredible new tricks. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain May 25, 2014

    If the rest of the series continues to develop like these first three issues have, then I'm sure that this run of Daredevil too is going to be a long and fruitful run. Read Full Review

    Overall this book and the entire run thus far rules. Get it while you still can as these no doubt will increase in value once Daredevil hits Netflix. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Steven Michael Scott Jun 18, 2014

    The upcoming Netflix Daredevil series would majorly benefit from paying attention to what is being done here because this is how to do the character right. Let's hope this creative teams sticks around for another 36 issues and beyond because this is a classic run in the making. Read Full Review

    “Daredevil #3″ was a standard issue of the series, which is to say it was pretty great. Mark Waid's writing and Chris Samnee's art were on point here, as Matt tried to tackle an old villain who might be more formidable that his laughing response in issue #2 indicated. Read Full Review

    Even a relatively uneventful issue of Daredevil is a sight better than most comics out there. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon May 22, 2014

    While Chris Samnee's style may be cartoony from time to time, something that not all fans appreciate, it's never inappropriate to the tone set forth by Waid. His lines are clean and clear, and his action is easy to follow and always exciting. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose May 22, 2014

    Mark Waid makes the Owl the scariest he's ever been in the latest issue of Daredevil, as he and artist Chris Samnee continue to produce rock-solid work as Matt Murdock struggles to adjust to San Francisco. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza May 23, 2014

    "Daredevil" #3 is just another example of what Mark Waid and Chris Samnee bring to the character and the Marvel Universe. This isn't twenty pages of Daredevil punching people in the face, nor is it the soap opera drama of Matt Murdock slowly rebuilding his life from the shambled ruins of his greatest defeat. This is Daredevil as he should be: a fun-loving character who readers cheer for, no matter how prominently the odds are stacked against him. This continues to be one of Marvel's best reads, and this issue does a surprisingly good job of being open enough for new readers to join in on the fun, despite being three issues deep.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 29, 2014

    And, as expected, Waid and artist Chris Samnee confirm Foggy Nelson is still alive and in hiding for his own safety. Judging by the chance Foggy takes here (entering the law office in a flimsy disguise) it's a secret that won't stay buried for long. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - David Hinspeter May 31, 2014

    I am a little disappointed that Shroud isn't the crime boss, which was my impression from last issue. The team up was interesting, but the darker half is just a little too angsty for my blood. I am all for the recreation of the Owl as someone more sinister and capable as he has been in the past, but I just don't see how all of these elements are coming together. I'm no Mark Waid. Maybe I'm just blind as a Matt. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon May 23, 2014

    At least Chris Samnee is still at the top of his game. He shares the storyteller billing with Mark Waid for the simple reason that hes really, really good at comics. Even when Im scratching my head over what everybody is trying to do, I am still able to follow the art perfectly. Read Full Review

    3/3 issues done goddamn right. The Shroud becomes more of an interesting character due to his triple play, and the Owl is presented as a real scary crime boss, unlike previous stories featuring the guy. Mark's writing is always impeccable, funny and epic even in relatively lesser situations like entering the Owl's mansion. Chris's art is brilliant as usual, particularly in the very first pages, in which all the fear felt by Eli is mirrored in us via a grim and violent storytelling.

    Probably the weakest issue of the series but it was still great, and ended on a great cliffhanger.This creative team continues to knock it out of the park!

    Nice juxtaposition in the imagery regarding the owl. When did they change the way the names are writing on Matt's office door though?

    Vast improvement over last issue, due to the darker tone of the story. When they don't focus on out of character humor, this book is quite good.
