The apocalyptic events of SHADOWLAND have left the once-proud legacy of Daredevil in tatters. Now, far from the mean streets of Hell's Kitchen, a new evil is rising, and the only man crazy enough to face it is a man with nothing left to lose. The road to Hell was paved with good intentions, but the long road to redemption is the far harder path…

    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault Jan 12, 2011

    I'd been avoiding some of the Daredevil stuff through the recent event that so many fans have complained about and was waiting for the right moment to dive back into Matt's world. Diggle gave me that moment in this issue and it was totally worth the wait. Go get it, despite the price. Read Full Review

    Either way, it's a strong start, and pleasingly character-centric following the wide strokes of "Shadowland." Diggle's run has had its ups and downs, but if the rest of Reborn is as good as this, it's sure to end on a high note. Read Full Review

    Before I get into this issue, first a quick question... Why isn't this mini-series taking place in the Daredevil series as opposed to Black Panther taking over the Daredevil series? Answer: Who the hell knows?! This was a very entertaining comic book, and a great start to this mini-series. It shows us that the real Matt Murdock is back, not the crazed, Hand leading one. Matt simply wants to be left alone, and not deal with the whole super-hero deal anymore, but as is his life, the insanity seems to follow him wherever he goes. Can a depressed Daredevil take care of a bunch of dumb hicks who have taken over a New Mexico town? Um yeah, probably, but I'll enjoy seeing how things turn out regardless. Read Full Review

    It's too early to tell how successful they're going to be in bringing Daredevil back, so they haven't won me back yet - but this is a good first step. We'll see how it goes with the other three chapters. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 12, 2011

    All in all, its a well-done book with a character that I dont have a lot of attachment to showing why hes interesting. Daredevil Reborn #1 earns an impressive 4 out of 5 stars overall, looking and reading smoothly and hopefully leading the character into territory that isnt all about Bullseye, Elektra, Kingpin and the dead girlfriend of the week.

    IGN - Jan 12, 2011

    Davide Gianfelice doesn't possess a style that meshes particularly well with superhero books, so it's fortunate that Reborn lacks most of the visual trappings of a superhero story. Gianfelice finds himself at home in the dusty expanses and run-down diners of Daredevil's new stomping grounds. And when the action belatedly picks up, Gianfelice also proves he has a knack for conveying movement and combat. Should Reborn ultimately show more ambition, Gianfelice will no doubt outdo his work in this quiet first issue. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Alex Evans Jan 13, 2011

    Bland and uninspiring. Reading Frank Miller's run on the title and his later retelling of DD's origins were some of my best comic experiences as a kid. However, until a good creative team revives the Daredevil franchise, I'm gone. Read Full Review
