    If you're looking for the guy in the red pajama's, I'm sure he'll show up more in the next few issues. However, don't let that stop you from picking up a great murder mystery that after just one issue has sunk it's teeth into me pretty damn deep and has me mulling over how this is going to turn out over the coming months. Highly recommended issue. Read Full Review

    On a side note, I have to admit I'm enjoying that this book seems to be existing in a world that's not centered around Secret Invasion. It's also really exciting to see a creative team that got broken up too soon get back together, and I hope this is the start of another great run for Daredevil. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - M. Staples May 30, 2008

    The mystery boils down to this: A man named "Big Ben" Donovan (no relation to Milla) has been convicted of killing three children and has admitted to the crime. For this, he has been sentenced to the electric chair. Our mystery character is convinced that despite his confession, he is innocent and wants Foggy and Dakota to prove it. The catch is that his execution is in six days, so the true murderer must be discovered before then. Truthfully, this sounds like something from Matlock (which I shamelessly enjoy, despite being too young to have watched the show when it aired), and I am eager to see how they approach this case. Throw in the fact that superheroics will likely be involved (after all, we're talking about Daredevil here), and this looks to be the beginning of a great story arc. Bring on the next issue, I say!

    Lark is a solid artist whose work captures the mood and doesnt deviate from the script. Characters show enough facial expressions to be believable and make readers relate to them. That is all this story needs. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza May 30, 2008

    "Daredevil" #107 was a fine reintroduction to the character for me, but the same might not hold true for everyone picking this up. If you don't have at least a passing knowledge of the character and his supporting cast, then you could find yourself a little lost. If you don't mind getting a little lost once in awhile, this book offers you a decent chance to explore. This story starts a new adventure for Matt Murdock, his friends and his readers. I'll definitely be back for part two. Read Full Review

    So a new storyline kicks off and Matt may find a little bit of peace by the end of it. I wouldn't count on it, but we can always hope. Good, dependable work by everyone involved, with skills in play that make most books on the racks look silly in comparison. Call it a jumping on point and make your friends read it. They'll thank you for it. Or at least they won't beat you senseless in an alley. Read Full Review
