THE OMEGA EFFECT TIE-IN Daredevil and Spider-Man join Frank Castle in an epic battle against the New York crime syndicate. Could this be the beginning of an astonishing alliance the likes of which the Marvel U has never seen before?

    The Omega Effect might be over, but this issue makes it clear that the ramifications have yet to come. Also, there's a really awesome letter in the letters column this month from iZombie/Madman/X-Statix artist Mike Allred, so keep your eyes peeled. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Apr 30, 2012

    Daredevil #11 was a strong finish to The Omega Effect. Mark Waid provided a lot of great character work for Daredevil, Punisher and Spider-Man. All three characters were able to mesh together very well as they each brought something different to the table. The addition of Rachel Alves gave the team-up an added cog to the machine to further Daredevils character. With how the story ended I look forward to seeing how the ramifications of where each character stands at the end will affect each book. Read Full Review

    Punisher Central - Neil Byce Apr 25, 2012

    This issue had tons of action and even some tense and more quiet dialogue scenes. That entertained me tons! I was also anxiously anticipated the last few pages as I had no idea where this all was leading to. The book goes by fast with all the action and if you are a fan of Spider-Man, Daredevil or the Punisher then you are in for a treat. Read Full Review

    A disappointing finish to the otherwise strong Omega Effect, Daredevil #11 at least features some excellent artwork to make up for its vices. Also, this is the first moderately weak issue in the title so far, so it will be interesting to see how Waid and co. regain their footing in the following issues. They have built up a sturdy foundation of critical and commercial success so far with the series, and a misstep in here necessarily doesn't throw the entire house into shambles. Read Full Review

    Consistently great writing and art with a $2.99 price point makes The Man Without Fear the best value in comics today. Read Full Review

    In a time when there is a lot of negativity brewing around the world of company-owned superheroes, it's easy enough to see why we as a comic collecting culture still buy into i all when books like this are released. Waid played a long con (against me, anyway) with his handling of Murdock, but this issue shows me the “Daredevil” everyone else sees: a fun and slightly nuanced take on Marvel's other resident punching bag. Can't wait to see what issue #12 holds now. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Apr 25, 2012

    This is not at all a bad comic; in fact, it's very entertaining. There is some really fantastic art in this issue and it is a great end to a cross-over event. I personally really enjoyed reading these three characters team up and work together. I liked seeing them keep a common goal in mind even if they didn't agree with one another. The fact that they did not agree actually made the story even more entertaining to read. Overall, not a bad issue and this book managed to wrap up the story very neatly. Read Full Review

    All in all, it's another solid issue of Mark Waid's Daredevil run, it's still well worth your $2.99, and if new readers jumped into this crossover I'm sure they'll be inspired to keep following either of the series involved, if not simply to see what happens next with the Omega Drive. It may not have had the conclusion I originally expected, but it was a nice story to have before we do get to that conclusion. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 1, 2012

    Even with the pairing of this unlikely threesome the adventure itself isn't all that memorable. However, it is punctuated by some nice dialogue between Spidey and Daredvil and some strong opening internal monologue from the man without fear. It's also got some terrific art by Marco Checchetto. Month after month, even with a revolving group of artists, Daredvevil continues to be one of the best looking comics around. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Apr 30, 2012

    The art is amazing, but the story doesn't quite keep up. Things feel rushed, opportunities feel missed, and at the end of it all, little actually changed for these characters - especially for Daredevil, whose plight got this whole thing started. It leaves me asking what the point was, which isn't a great feeling. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Alex Evans Apr 28, 2012

    A fun crossover completely undercut and shot to bits by a terrible conclusion. Seriously, the Omega Effect may as well have never even happened. This entire crossover achieved nothing. But hey, on the plus side, that Marcos Martin cover is totally wicked. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Apr 26, 2012

    "Daredevil" #11 is a frustrating comic. It's drawn beautifully and the scripting is strong. The problem is the plotting itself and that's what drags the book (and overall story) down a great deal. The strengths of "Daredevil" #11 are from the window dressing, but it's hard to ignore that the core itself is weak at best. It's a pity, because I expect much more from both "Daredevil" and "The Punisher" these days. Not this book's finest moment. Read Full Review
