    This is a great start to what is surely to be another fantastic arc from Soule, Buffagni, Milla, and Cowles. The last arc was so fulfilling that it will beexciting to see what this teams does next with the great Elektra now in the mix. Daredevil #6 just gets it, it understands that Daredevil will never fully understand his feelings for Elektra and that Matt Murdock cannot resist her seductive charm. This pace and intensity of this first issue will have you soaring to the last page, where your jaw will drop when you see what the big reveal is at the end. Read Full Review

    Daredevil #6 gets “Elektric Connections” off to a flying start, with the deadly battle between The Man Without Fear and Elektra being sensational. This would all be accompanied by some intriguing twists, though there was still a lot of questions left unanswered. Read Full Review

    In "The Matrix Reloaded," Seraph tells Neo, "You do not truly know someone until you fight them." After seeing Daredevil's skills as a fighter and teacher in the first story arc, it's easy to forget he isn't always the toughest guy in Hell's Kitchen; "Daredevil" #6 provides a vivid reminder of that fact and proves just how well Matt and Elektra truly know each other.

    Elektra makes for a fine guest star and looks to be a solid focal point to this new arc, but her usage here is more perplexing than engaging. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 2, 2016

    The fight definitely delivers on brutal action as Daredevil isn't ready for the ferocious attack unleashed by the assassin. As to the final panel's reveal of just what Elektra is after, that's going to take some explanation (but for that we'll have to wait at least one more issue). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    The problem with this issue is in the characters. Daredevil and Elektra are usually great, Blindspot could be great, but even great characters need depth. We need to see these characters as more than just a costumed crime-fighter and lawyer, a side-kick, and an elite assassin. They don't become real until we see a more vulnerable, everyday human side to them, one we can identify with, or at least empathize with. Soule subtly hints at this, but really needs to show us more of Matt Murdock's humanity and his weaknesses so we can root for him again. We get a spark of Elektra's humanity and vulnerability at the end of this issue, so there is definitely hope. But Blindspot needs something more; we need to know who he really is, what defines his struggle in Hell's Kitchen, and what makes him want to train with an anonymous, costumed vigilante. If Soule can give us these, then this story will transform into so much more than what it is right now. Read Full Review

    This issue feels to me like the first issue this series SHOULD have had, bringing readers in with a familiar villain, but with a new twist on their story. I love this books art, and I love the cover art even more. This is a well written story, and the fighting is visually stunning and extremely dynamic. I feel like this is starting to gel more with the Daredevil Netflix series, and that's a good thing. I liked that Blindspot had a brief appearance in the issue, and namedropping the Night Nurse was a nice moment as well. I really hope this is a big jumping on point for readers, because I am finally ready to commit one hundred percent to Daredevil's cause now. I love the half tone colors in this book, and I cannot wait to see what happens with the cliffhanger from this issue!

    More Elektra is always a good thing, and she is vicious in this issue - the art is also great, although I look forward to the return of Garney. I also look forward to finding out how they put Matt's identity back in the bottle.

    Possibly the best issue of this run thus far. Elektra is super intense and delivers a crazy cliffhanger of a line at the end. I hope this opens the door for some emotional storytelling, Soule has thrived with that on other books, but so far not this one.
