    With the final page turned, this issue, and indeed this series, seems to be a very fitting end. The tale of Matt Murdock may be over, but his legacy will long outlast him, and perhaps that's the hero's most important accomplishment. As for Ben Urich, I think that he would rest easy knowing that his son is on a righteous path, and once again it's the legacy he leaves behind that truly reveals the pinnacle of his merit as a man.

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jun 5, 2013

    This has been and will be one of my favorite miniseries of the year and the year isn't even half way over. We've seen many great Daredevil stories and we can now add END OF DAYS to that list. Brian Michael Bendis and David Mack make a great team in deliver this dour tale of Matt Murdock's last day and beyond. It's a heavy story that isn't too cheerful. But what the story represents and how it is told makes this worth reading and re-reading. The art team of Klaus Janson, Bill Sienkiewicz and David Mack make it all even better. It is sad that the story is over but you can't deny how great it's been reading it all. Read Full Review

    Daredevil: End of Days is the type of series that doesn't come around very often. It's a brilliant read, and one of the books that Marvel has put out years. Read Full Review

    In the end, since this is the eighth issue of an eight-issue series, readers are given an ending. As with all great stories though, the ending of "Daredevil: End of Days" #8 delivers a beginning. Where things go from here remains to be seen, but it all makes sense and causes me to wish for more. As a standalone issue, this would be a great, self-aware tale, but as an eighth and final installment of a bigger arc, it's much more satisfying, bringing to a close the quest of Ben Urich and the mystery of Mapone. If you missed out on this one, you need to do one thing: find them all or wait for the collection. This is a Daredevil story that every Daredevil fan should have. Read Full Review

    Daredevil: End of Days #8 is absolutely masterful, though probably read better in quick succession after issue #7. Read Full Review

    Here we are eight issues later where there series literally never took a step in the wrong direction. Art is based completely on feeling, the feeling of mystery and the sense of dread that this comic brought was enthralling. It rivaled some of the best moments of the previousDaredevil run by BrianMichealBendis. The art has been completely shockingly consistent since the very first issue of this series. When this titles is released in a beautiful hardcover, sit back and enjoy some of the best material that this medium can offer. Read Full Review

    Modern Age Comics - Alexander Moser Jun 6, 2013

    Daredevil: End of Days is a great ending to a character's story. Sure, one page may not have been perfect, but the other 159 pages are full of extraordinary artwork and a compelling story. End of Days is the kind of Daredevil story you'll want to read again and again. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Jun 11, 2013

    This is a good conclusion that pays tribute to the fans of Daredevil and that should satisfy about anyone following this series with its clever angle and its stunning art. What Bendis, Mack, Janson, Sienkiewicz and Hollingsworth accomplish here is nothing short of amazing. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jun 5, 2013

    Story aside, this thing shines when it comes to the art. Since the first issue, Klaus Janson and Bill Sienkiewicz have been delivering one of the best looking comics in recent memory. If nothing else, I'm sad to see this mini-series end because this unbelievable art bream won't be working together anymore. I'm extremely bummed to leave this world behind and that's largely because of the work of these two legends. David Mack also provides some gloriously painted flashback pages, which help reveal the beginnings of this story. All in all, Daredevil: End of Days #8 is great, if not the flawless ending we all hoped for. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Jun 7, 2013

    Daredevil: End of Dayswas promised, reworked, started, and delayed, so many times, that some readers may feel that time has passed it by: Mark Waid's current run on the monthly title is the first since Bendis' departure to truly find its own way, honoring what Bendis did with the character while never forgetting that Daredevil began as just another long-underwear vigilante; this "street-level" story is less suited to today's Disney-Marvel landscape than it would have been in the glory days of Marvel Knights. But as a standalone piece of comic book storytelling, it's a reminder of just what a breath of fresh air Bendis stories like "Out" and "Underboss" were a decade and more ago. Read Full Review

    While the final curtain for End Of Days may be disappointing, the art continues to impress. The combined style of comic icon Bill Sienkiewicz and Klaus Janson, have kept End Of Days visually exciting since page one. Co-writer David Mack, who uses a fine art paint style to give the scenes a dreamlike quality, handles the flashback sequences of Daredevil lecturing Urich’s kid. Sienkiewicz angular style, combined with Janson’s modern day noir edge, is perfect for the story being told here. I wish the story had been as dedicated to originality as the art. Read Full Review

    Even though the ending might have taken a left turn into less full filling territory, Bendis has made it one hell of a ride for Daredevil and his fans. Read Full Review
