    The Kingpin gets his hurt on by tearing into some of the Owl and Osborn’s thugs. The scene with Fisk and the awesome Lady Bullseye was simply too short but nonetheless outstanding and delivers the message crystal clear; you don’t mess with the Kingpin! Focusing back on Daredevil we find that he is addressing the Hand and calls out an assassin who, in the opening battle scene, cuts of the hand of a cop. Daredevil chastises him and the assassin, full of shame, kills himself. The issue ends with White Tiger basically asking Matt, who is at a loss for words, “what did he think would happen when he joined a league of assassins?” Read Full Review

    De La Torre is a good artist and keeps Daredevil in style which is appreciated. I particularly liked Hollingsworths colours. He creates palettes that feel like washes with too much light saturation. Its great with the story as it gives it an aerie mood as if there is steam in the room. Read Full Review

    But what happened to all those cops Daredevil and crew took down in the beginning of the issue? That question lingers throughout, and recalls the earlier question of how far Diggle is willing to go with this new direction. Yet even if it's not as far as I'd like, I suspect his run will remain an entertaining ride as long as he can push the envelope enough to make this story seem every bit as exciting as those of his acclaimed predecessors.

    After this issue, it's clear that Diggle's run won't be any weaker than those of his predecessors, which is saying quite a bit. Read Full Review

    Interesting start to this creative team's run. I haven't said much about the art because I feel the same as Dave Wallace: It's good and provides some continuity to the title. I'm enjoying what's going on, but I'll be really interested to see what happens after this initial arc is finished and Siege is complete. Read Full Review

    I'm energized about "Daredevil" all over again thanks to this latest issue. If you aren't reading "Daredevil" yourself, now is a great time to start. Ninjas, organized crime, corrupt government agencies, deaths, traitors... what more can you ask for? Good stuff. Read Full Review
