    Daredevil can't be an easy character to write - he's essentially a normal man with a few extraordinary abilities - but Waid has crafted a funny, intelligent hero here, and it's great fun to follow along. Read Full Review

    If you happen to be a long time Daredevil reader, you'll definitely notice how bright this issue is, too, especially in comparison to previous volumes of this series. The colors pop off the page and there is hardly a shadow to be found. It feels like some of the pages are practically glowing. This is not a bad thing; there are plenty of dark and gritty superhero books on the shelf. It's nice to have a fun comic book that reminds us what makes superheroes so great in the first place.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin May 16, 2012

    Being left to do its own thing Daredevil continues to be one of the most consistently well written titles. Daredevil #13 is yet another example of how great this series is as Mark Waid closes one chapter in Matt Murdock's Daredevil adventure and begins another. The combination of strong character interaction and action sequences made this issue a lot of fun, which is enhanced by the vibrant artwork. The ending is sure to mean a lot of Doom is on the way for Daredevil which only means more fun for us as the reader. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 21, 2012

    The issue seems to wrap-up the Omega Drive storyline, at least until the epilogue where Daredevil finds himself transported to Latveria against his will. Next month should see a pretty good matchup of Daredevil vs. Doctor Doom as well as let us in on what Foggy was shocked to find in Matt's desk. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Overall, another solid issue of this ongoing series, but it really just leaves me more excited for what's to come next month as we see Matt face one of the MU's best baddies. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair May 21, 2012

    The man without fear certainly earns his name as he takes on a plethora of costumed crime syndicates all by himself. And this series certainly earns its title as one of Marvels best ongoing series. Written by Mark Waid (Incorruptible) & illustrated by Khoi Pham (Mighty Avengers : The Unspoken). Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - warriorfist May 24, 2012

    A good book that is not without its shortcomings, Daredevil #13 nevertheless manages to throw an enticing bait towards the readers that's guaranteed to make them return for the next issue. Another solid effort from the creative team puts this one squarely in the win column for the series. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 23, 2012

    I was not terrifically interested in the Omega Effect, mostly because I don't have a lot of use for the Punisher in the Marvel Universe. (To my mind, he works best without supernatural elements, but that's probably just me.) Daredevil #13 sets up big conflicts for both Daredevil and Murdock, gives us a couple of surprises, and nails the landing with what I hope to be major consequences for DD, earning 3.5 out of 5 stars overall. The Omega Drive storyline seems to be ending, but it's leading into something that could be epic for Daredevil and for the Marvel Universe, and the Man Without Fear continues to deliver stories that excite me for the first time in YEARS...

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima May 16, 2012

    I had a hard time with this issue. As well written as it was, it just felt like an easy out to have Matt parade around New York with some precious data drive strapped to his neck -- up for the taking. Is he that conceited? The saving grace of this issue (aside from Pham's great art) are the first few pages that put the spotlight on Foggy Nelson, who seems to be having a nervous breakdown. These scenes really express the tremendous amount of compassion Nelson has for his friend, by showcasing his level of concern. Great art, lackluster story that feels out of character for Matt. If you like action though this might be exactly what you've been waiting for. Read Full Review

    Comics Crux - Nick Verissimo May 16, 2012

    The issue doesn't deliver a whole lot in terms of excitement or memorable action, but it sets up what is definitely going to be an interesting next chapter in this series. The one question that continues to ring in my head is that time after time, Murdock proves that he is the man without fear, but how long can he continue being this risky? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay May 18, 2012

    "Daredevil" #13 builds to brilliance on the shoulders of middling pages and story. It's a shame this transition issue, as it feels, is matched with a transitional art team. This issue is not essential and though the ending is so very good (have I stressed that enough?) the rest is forgettable. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Alex Evans May 19, 2012

    Merely okay artwork and a script that, while it has its high points, is really just a do-over and proper conclusion of something that should've been wrapped a month ago. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose May 17, 2012

    Aside from a decently abrupt cliffhanger and a nice internal monologue from Waid, this comic has lost much of its power without an A-list artist in tow. Read Full Review
