    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jul 23, 2014

    This is definitely a story for Daredevil fans, both new and longterm. People looking for some kind major tie-in to Original Sin would be better served looking to a different tie-in as this one could have been just as well served with information unrelated to that event. This isn't to say that this shouldn't have been a tie-in, but it's more the traditional version of that phrase where fans of the book can pick it up and not need to know much, or anything, of the larger event. The writing is great, the art is beautiful, and the storyline is fraught with intrigue. Everything we could want from a new storyline. Read Full Review

    With an "original sin" now plaguing Matt though, any sense of fun has been thrown out the window. That doesn't mean that this issue isn't good, as it is in fact one of the best Original Sin tie-in's so far, but this does mean that the most charming elements of Waid's Daredevil are now completely absent.

    Another month, another great issue for the book that consistently is one of the most outstanding books Marvel puts out on the shelves. No book has me more actively interested in an individual's life and story that I didn't care about before reading the book. While I did miss the artwork of Samnee here it still was a thrill to read as well as look at. I think that this is a slight tonal shift for the tie-in but they kept it rather smooth and unnoticeable for the general audience. This one gets a definite yes from me. Read Full Review

    I was slightly disappointed when I saw Chris Samnee wasn't on art but was very satisfied with Javier Rodeiguez. He had a fantastic two page spread with Daredevil listening for clues and some other really cool layouts taking advantage of Daredevil's unique abilities. The artists on Daredevil, coupled with Mark Waid's writing are what make this one of my favorite books every month. Read Full Review

    A crossover issue that doesn't actually have to cross over into anything. It's as good as it sounds. Read Full Review

    The thing about Daredevil #6 is that as a Daredevil nut, I liked it, yet it doesn't feel as strong as anything put before it. It's only been six issues (seven if you count the #1.5 issue) since the Marvel NOW! rebranding of the title and it feels like this issue is a mild jab to the shoulder compared to the strong right crosses to the face we've gotten so far. Waid and company haven't explored Matt's relationship with his mother and this could be a great time to do so, giving Waid new territory to explore under his direction, but I felt like this issue lacked the heart of the previous installments. Maybe we can find Matt's pulse next time around. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Forrest C. Helvie Jul 28, 2014

    Although this issue is an Original Sin tie-in, the connection is only lightly touched upon in the beginning as a catalyst for this issue's primary conflict, which makes it easily accessible for any reader. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Sam Marx Jul 23, 2014

    At the end of the day, this a very by the numbers Daredevil book. He has a mystery, he dives in head first, and now must fight some baddies. I hope were able to pick up more on the visions and problems he had at the start of the book, because that seems like a huge opportunity for character development that I just dont see happening in Wakanda. Mark Waid has built something special for this series with intensely vivid characters, and Matt was primed to build a new life in San Francisco. I hope it doesnt take too long for him to find his way home. Read Full Review

    This is a nice way to do an event tie-in. Readers of Daredevil need not feel obligated to pick up Original Sin to enjoy this, and the same goes for Original Sin readers not reading Daredevil. If you are reading both it is just a little bonus. As for the issue itself it is tragic, mysterious and thrilling. I love it, if you've ever been screwed over by a system that you have no control over, you'll relate. If you're not reading Daredevil, feel free to jump right in here. Javier Rodriguez does an impeccable job filling in for Chris Samnee.

    8 mostly, plus 0.5 for the intriguing mystery, was Matt's father really a [SPOILER]?

    Tie-ins are usually published to make people buy the core story (in this case "Original Sin") and while this book may be an incentive to do so, it's absolutely enjoyable on its own and it provides us with every piece of information we need to follow the story. The sin Matt has discovered is his father's tendency at... going physical on his mother and that would probably be the reason why she became a nun. After an investigation, though, he understands that the situation is real bad for her in a way I didn't predict. I sure missed Chris Samnee this issue, but Rodriguez did a fair job himself, also drawing an outstanding all-hearing moment in a building.
