    Amazing art coupled with phenomenal writing makes this one of the best issues to hit stands this week. Great execution by Samnee here; I loved him on this issue. He really helps tell the story, emotion and movement of Daredevil through his art. Mark Waid is setting up challenge after challenge for Matt; and that's how you tell a really good story. I love the parallel ongoing stories told here; the current predicament Matt is in and Matt's deteriorating friendship and partnership with Foggy -- Matt is definitely in for a world of pain. Excellent pacing in this issue. Waid put a lot of thought into this story and it shows. Fantastic cliffhanger at the end. This is a great jumping on point for new readers, too. Read Full Review

    But Chris Samnee is what seals the deal. I am so happy he's going to stay on this book, you have no idea. Perfect composition, perfect choreography " I adore the strobe effect he gives Matt, for example, as he flips and tumbles down a building. He's got expressive characters, great page layouts, the whole she-bang. Now that Matt has lost his greatest gifts, we've got a great cliffhanger here, as Marvel's best series keeps its record intact.

    There's no other way to say it, this book is among the cream of the crop. It's definitely a book you should be reading month in and month out. Waid's run is incredible. The emotional turmoil you'll go through in this one issue is enough to prove that. It's just that damn heartbreaking. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joey Esposito Jun 20, 2012

    Since Matt isn't his jovial self, a lot of that charm is retained through artist Chris Samnee, who makes good on his potential as ongoing artist for this series with another showcase of damn fine storytelling, bold ink work, and stellar use of body language. The only unfortunate artistic shortcoming in this issue is the colors of Javier Rodriguez, which tend to overwhelm the careful line work at times. That aside, taking into account the flow of these pages, Daredevil #14 is yet another superb example of superhero comic action. Read Full Review

    Mark Waid doesn't waste a single moment in this issue, and the way he portrays Matt's struggle is brilliant. He's definitely not short-handed in having Samnee on the artistic side of things here, who's just as brilliant as any other artist who's been on this series. There's a reason that Daredevil is one of the most critically acclaimed series on this shelves right now, and that's because Waid really understands the character that he's writing. He gets what makes Daredevil who he is, he understands how to use his powers, and he really understands how to portray it all in a way that makes this series constantly one of the most fun comics you could wish for. Now we just have to wait until next month to see more of Daredevil's adventure in Latveria, and what Doom wants with him. Read Full Review

    Despite my lack of interest in Chris Samnee, this is still a great issue to an even greater monthly title. From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Jun 22, 2012

    "Daredevil" #14 has a few choice hints at moments and the art is stellar, so this is thin fun. This is an example of a comic feeling like just one little slice of the overall story. If you have faith in Waid, your patience will no doubt pay off. If you like Samnee's work, then it's in usual fine form here. If you're looking for a reason to need to read this issue, it's not going to be evident but you'll have some fun nonetheless. The final page is certainly a great beat to end things -- in fact, it's the highlight of the issue. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 25, 2012

    The latest issue reminded me of D.O.A. with Daredevil standing in for Dennis Quaid‘s character (not a good thing). The purposeful further teasing of what Foggy found, and a profound decision for the character, makes me care even less about the subplot that I did when it was introduced last month. Still worth a look, but this issue feels far too much like filler. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Jun 24, 2012

    I've been having issue with the story in this series for a while, but the good will it built up during the first arc or so resulted in me following this book longer than I would have otherwise. So while I didn't make good on my decision not to buy the title, I certainly intend to give it a miss next time around. There simply isn't enough interest being built to keep me around, despite how great the art might be. Read Full Review
