    This is a great first issue for this mini-series, and as I stated previously, was far better than I would have initially expected. It's a well put-together issue, both in terms of artwork and writing, and I'm really interested to see just how the rest of this storyline plays out. Highly Recommended! Read Full Review

    I haven't gotten to actually read the central Shadowland mini-series, but all these tie-in specials and minis have actually been quite good. This is a great complement to the Bullseye one-short and, really, the whole crossover in general, because this story's really about the effect Daredevil's heel turn is having on New York as a community.

    Wellinton Alves also proves to be a pleasant surprise in this issue. I've enjoyed his work on Nova, but this proves he's capable of working in a grittier, more cinematic landscape. The inking could stand to be a little more consistent, though. Blood on the Streets is the sort of story that might actually work better outside the confines of Shadowland. But then the problem would be convincing readers to actually purchase the series. If you're going to suffer through he remaining three issues of Shadowland, why not give a small but earnest little book like this a shot while you're at it? Read Full Review

    Perhaps it was simply just a matter of taste but this attempt was far more convincing than Bullseye was in proving that there may be substantial storytelling to be enjoyed outside of the Shadowland proper. Where Bullseye felt like it was almost forced upon you, Blood was a pure joy to let yourself get absorbed in. It also lent a hint of optimism as to what quality may be found in upcoming tie-in issues. For me, this issue made Shadowland that much more interesting in general by giving you a smaller piece to the larger puzzle. Read Full Review
