    I've been seriously enjoying Shadowland, even though I'm getting it in a piecemeal fashion. This is the first issue of DD I've read in a long time and, while I would've liked to have seen more of hornhead himself, I can definitely get a sense of this being a well-shaped piece of the crossover's larger puzzle. I do wonder if this particular story might've been better served in one of the one-shot tie-ins, though. Read Full Review

    De La Torre's and Hollingsworth's art is great. I just wish they had something more interesting to draw. Bottom line: This issue is just treading water until the next issue and 'Shadowland' #5. Read Full Review

    How dumb is Shadowland? The ridiculousness of Foggy Nelson getting through the riots, the cops, the ninja and into the belly of the beast (so to speak) doesn't even rank on the most absurd moments of this storyline. For a Shadowland comic this one's not bad, but then again that's a pretty low standard. Here where given a Daredevil comic where Daredevil (even a demon-infested one) makes only a token appearance.

    This comic just solidifies the argument so many comic readers have against decompression. If you have a grand tale and you stretch it to a trade's worth and fill in the gaps in interesting ways then you'll still have a good story. What you don't want is to stretch the tale out and do so by stretching each scene out. That's not effective storytelling and, sad to say, "Daredevil" has finally jumped the rails and become bland for the first time in a decade of being a stalwart of powerful storytelling and bold character moves. The shame. It's like a toxic relationship, and one that will only now be tolerated because we know this buddy is terminal. Read Full Review
