Drifting into anger and depression, Daredevil stalks the streets of Hell's Kitchen, looking for criminals to take it out on...but is he really just taking it out on himself?

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Mar 25, 2008

    This issue provides a good recap of the current status quo of Daredevil, making it a good place for new readers to jump on board the book. It's a summary of where Matt's head is at the moment, and also functions as a decent exploration of how his actions and self-destructive attitude are affecting the people he holds most dear. Whilst I'm sure I'm not alone in hoping that things will brighten up for the character eventually, this is an affecting portrayal of a superhero at his lowest ebb, and punctuates the last year's worth of issues with a full stop which will allow Brubaker to move the book in a slightly different direction from the next issue onwards, should he choose to do so.

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

    Art problems aside, this is a solid issue. The last 10 or so pages do well to augment the pain Daredevil's feeling. This is one of the lowest points we've ever seen this character at and it'll be interesting to see if he digs himself deeper into despair or finds a way to dig himself out. Poor Matt Murdock never seems to catch a break. Now I'm depressed. Thanks, Mister Brubaker! Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Mar 26, 2008

    I want to say Avoid It, but it's still well written and newer readers will probably be impressed. Me, though? I kept waiting for something to happen to set this apart and was disappointed on every page because I've read this before. Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Mar 26, 2008

    I can't in good conscience recommend this issue of Daredevil. I firmly believe what came before was solid and have high hopes that what comes next will be equally as great, but this is not necessary reading by any stretch of the imagination. Read Full Review
