    Lark and Gaudino offer visuals where the characters look consistent. They even look consistent to the work by Alex Maleev. Thats a great feat and I wish more comic book series spent time creating a uniform visual identity for their characters, than trying to feature the new hot head artist of the month. The story is just easier to read this way. Read Full Review

    Quieter character moments provide some pause; Foggy Nelson provides a little comic relief as he muses on Matt's luck with the ladies. There is an interesting evolution of the subplot involving the irresistible Lily Lucca, and a classic noir vibe is evoked by Daredevil's rhetorical questioning of one of Melvin's victims as he lies dead in a bloody bathtub. Perhaps Brubaker's new Criminal project is building on his strengths as a straight crime writer even further? Brubaker combines all this with a familiarity and ease which would have you believe that he's been writing Daredevil for years. I love the logical, natural, almost casual use that Brubaker makes of his heightened senses, whether he's tracking down a murder victim by his scent, or predicting that "Lucca's about to walk in." It makes for a book which the usual overused superlatives don't do justice. Simply put, it's one of the best superhero books currently on the stands, and if issue #100 is going to be the landmark issue Read Full Review

    This issue changes everything about this story arc and really grabs onto a great deal of the Brubaker momentum. The plot of this story arc has only gotten better and has gotten very interesting with this issue. The artwork remains consistent and is the best suited for this title. With issue #100 on the horizon, it appears that this story arc may play an integral part of the post-100 issue Daredevil stories well into the next arc. Read Full Review
