    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Feb 26, 2008

    It's very rare that I choose to award five-bullet ratings to serial superhero comics. The reason for that isn't that I think that the genre isn't worthy of such high praise - indeed, the majority of comics that I read are superhero titles - but on an issue-to-issue basis, things are normally so inconclusive and open-ended that I don't often feel that the issue is satisfying enough on its own terms to warrant the perfect score. With this issue, Brubaker has crafted a climax for his current arc which also acts as a point of punctuation for his entire run so far, whilst at the same time making for a thrilling read as a single issue. I couldn't ask for more from a superhero comic; therefore, I couldn't justify anything less than full marks for this book. Read Full Review

    I won't go as far as to say this issue single-handedly validates the more yawn-worthy middle pieces of "Without Fear," but it does contain a very solid Daredevil story that has everything you'd rely on the character to provide, and one that ultimately furthers the character a bit. That's as good an accomplishment as any ongoing book can reasonably hope for. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Feb 29, 2008

    The epilogue, thankfully is much stronger than the climax. But it's completely twisted and depressing. I think no matter the circumstances here, there was no way to end this confrontation in a satisfactory manner; Brubaker might have written himself into a corner. He got himself out, but like the fight between Daredevil and Mr. Fear, it wasn't pretty. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Feb 28, 2008

    In the end, though, I'm not sure what Mr Fear was out to accomplish. Why go get your ass kicked by Murdock and go to jail? The little tidbit about how his fear powers don't require the gas anymore and are like pheromones was nice and he now runs the prison, but still, why not team up with Hood, kill / humiliate Matt and call it a day? Good issue, but a different, not sure if I'd call it great or bad, ending to this storyline. Read Full Review
