    I have only given two issues a 10 for the story in the past, and can only think of a handful of comic book issues I would ever give a 10 to, and Daredevil #506 was that damn good. Even though I was going to give the issue straight 9s that ending catapulted the story to get 10 Cosmic Boys out of 10. Diggle continue to astound me with the work they are doing since he started this run and Johnston seems to be a great co-writer for Diggle to team-up with. If you have not been reading Daredevil do yourself a favor and pick up this issue as well as Daredevil #501-#505 because this book just continues to get better and better. And this title does not look like it is going to slow down anytime soon with all that has happened so far and Shadowland coming up. So if you have not jumped on the Daredevil bandwagon yet all I have to say is What are you waiting for? Go out and get this title right now because this is one of the best and most exciting titles youll find on the stands. Read Full Review

    Overall this has been an extremely strong first arc for Diggle. While it lacks the same sense of urgency as Brubaker's "Devil in Cell Block D" it's certainly on par with the remainder of his run. As the arc enters its final chapter, it's comforting to know that Daredevil continues to be in capable hands. Read Full Review

    Daredevil's nightmare (which might seem like a dream for some) should have pulses beating, while the best scenes contain briefings about the bit of an inside job going on, as both trust and defiance knuckle up. During a meeting of minds between the fractious principals of the Hand cabal, Daredevil reverts to reverse psychology. His longing for unity infuriates Bakuto, despite the fact Matt came to his aid not once but twice earlier in the issue. Clearly, the Daimyo of the Hand has his own inexorable suspicions. While Matt's original intentions were to use bad to solve good, isn't this always the case with Daredevil: Matt bargains off more than he can chew. And as Daredevil fans, we shouldn't have it any other way. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Apr 13, 2010

    Diggle's run on "Daredevil" has been slightly uneven; some issues great, others a little too by-the-numbers. Maybe it's the change of scenery for the story, maybe it's having Johnston on board as a co-author, but it does feel like things are stabilizing as a result. Hopefully once de la Torre returns, Diggle and Johnston can get the book up to full speed. Diggle's first issue had a lot of great potential, and I think with the proper attention the book can get back up to what it promised there. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Josh Dean Apr 15, 2010

    Unfortunately, the scripting is not handled quite so well. This issue is a rare stumble in an otherwise highly enjoyable run. If this is the first issue you pick up of Daredevil, try not to judge the whole series by it. Read Full Review
