    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan K Lindsay May 25, 2010

    It's a simple issue and an enjoyable one. It stands alone and I know I'll reread it plenty of times in the future. It's almost a guilty pleasure and with the constant sadness that Matt Murdock gets put through it's kind of nice just to step to the side and have one nice moment where the weight of the world wasn't on his shoulders. We get to have some fun with our scarlet swashbuckler and I think it's nice that a character get treated with some diversity from time to time. Pick this one up; if you like the idea that comic characters can still sometimes be used for fun then this oneshot is right up an alley in your own Hell's Kitchen. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis May 30, 2010

    Daredevil and Cage have a bet about which one can take the other first after Cage misjudges Daredevils capabilities. But good old Daredevil thug, Turk is involved in the match as Cages trainer. Will he manage to sabotage this friendly fight? This story is set in the past and of course, is full of continuity errors. In the past, Foggy Nelson, Matt Murdocks partner did not know he was Daredevil. Or if he knew, he did not tell the hero he knew. Thats a major mistake. Second, Turk looks way too modern with dreads rather than the good old afro weve always known him to sport. There is no point to the story. Its not even charming or reeking of that good old fake nostalgia story set in the retroactive past that comic book publishers like to publish. The characters in the book look very stiff which is not a great thing when featuring a very acrobatic protagonist. Read Full Review
