    I sincerely have to applaud the entire staff of this book for just rocking the socks off of me month in and out. I have no clue as to how they keep things this fresh and engaging but I hope that this is something that they can keep up with. Daredevil is a constant must read! Read Full Review

    Daredevil #502 was another phenomenal issue. Andy Diggle and Roberto De La Torre are proving to be worthy successors to this title from their predecessors. I really have no idea where Diggle and De La Torre are going to take all the characters. All I know is that we should be in store for one wild ride on Daredevil. If you like dark and gritty titles I highly recommend picking up Daredevil up as it is one of the best books on the market. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Nov 16, 2009

    Overall, Daredevil is as good as it has ever been, and Diggle's run is off to a stronger start than many would have predicted, given the long shadow cast by his predecessors. This issue, with its focus on the criminal underworld, may have been slower overall than the last two installments in Diggle's run, but it was always going to be a tall order to compete with the first two showings. Despite the downtime, "Daredevil" is currently as good as it has ever been, and hopefully Diggle's run will be a long and celebrated one. Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Nov 11, 2009

    It's clear that by the end of this installment of Daredevil I was left feeling conflicted. Part of me wanted to see Diggle really put the pedal to the metal and take Matt to the limit, as is customary with this title. But another part of me knows that we're dealing with lines that, if crossed, could prevent Daredevil from being a functional superhero again. But all that aside, Daredevil #502 is certainly an engaging issue, and one thing it did right was make me care about what's going on. I think that's as rousing and endorsement as any.

    Finally, I'm pleased to report that this issue sees the return of a letters page to the book. It's only a small thing (especially in an age of internet messageboards and instant contact via e-mail), but I always enjoy seeing a reader feedback forum in the book itself--and it was a nice surprise for me to see a couple of well-known contributors from the excellent manwithoutfear Daredevil fansite, Alice Lynch and Kuljit Mithra, pop up in this issue.

    It's by no means a bad book, but it's hard not to be aggravated by Diggle going back on what made his first issue so great. Read Full Review
