    Daredevil #18 is worth your money. And yes, I know, a few weeks ago I was writing a rant on Marvel, and I'm giving this a better review than Batman #0, but this book is just that good. Read Full Review

    This is not a bad place to start reading if you are not familiar with the book because it sets the stage for things to come. It reinforces the state of the relationship between Matt and Foggy, Matt's new girlfriend and a mysterious figure from Matt's past. This is a great place to jump on board if you haven't been reading. Like all previous issue, this one is easy to read and digest and will keep you entertained throughout. Great art, story, pacing and themes make this another awesome issue. Read Full Review

    I'm running out of adjectives to describe Chris Samnee's art work. Fantastic? Brilliant? Beautiful? It's all those things and more. He gives every issue he touches a classic feel, like something from Marvel's golden era long ago. He even draws in his own sound effects. And his books are never late. The man is a gift to the comic book medium. I don't say this lightly; I really, truly believe he is closest thing we have to a modern Jack Kirby. If we could figure out how to clone Chris Samnee, we just might be able to save the entire industry. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 21, 2012

    With Mark Waid writing, "Daredevil" is a comic book that consistently delivers. The awards and recognition the title has garnered certainly adds some credence to that claim, but look no farther than this issue to find a stellar example of how Waid balances superheroics, personal character development, action and humor. As everything seems to be crumbling around him, Daredevil doesn't give up. The supporting cast don't become automatons or disappear completely. Every setting, every person weaves into the fabric of this story. "Daredevil" #18 offers a great spot for new readers, lapsed readers and fans of the Man Without Fear to embrace the optimistic uneasiness that makes Matt Murdock such an appealing character, especially as written by Mark Waid and drawn by Chris Samnee.

    We haven't gotten to the action of this arc yet, or even been introduced to the villain, but this issue is nothing, if not a fantastic start to a new story that's sure to become more emotionally resonant as we go forth. The cover of this issue proudly displays the”Eisner Award Winner” stamp, and this issue is a great example of why the title earned that award. Read Full Review

    Just as well-crafted and compelling as everyone makes it out to be. Instead of all this Avengers vs. X-Men nonsense, how about reading stories that will outlast the yearly gimmicks? Read Full Review

    If you have not checked out Daredevil in a while then perhaps this would be a good time to see what the character has been up to, the comic is worthy of much more attention than it is current receiving. Read Full Review

    The art from Chris Samnee is solid as ever. I love how he puts a modern spin on the Silver Age style of art. He maintains the heavy inks of the era but his strokes are thinner, the detail work a little more refined. Samnee never allows his panels to become too complex, even his characters are made up of only what they need to define them. The broad art gives characters weight and draws the focus to who is in the foreground of the panel rather than the entire panel. It’s a strong story telling device. I hope Waid pulls a cool trick out of his hat to explain the sudden dip in writing. I have faith. Read Full Review

    The issue delivers another terrific cover, and the art inside considers to vary from issue to issue with rotating artists continually given the comic a slightly different look. I don't think this is artist Chris Samnee's best work, but the action sequences look good as do the panels of Daredevil's vision. The next issue promises a big reveal, but this issue promised an introduction of a new villain it didn't deliver, so I'll cross my fingers that the crazy Daredevil storyline's days are numbers. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Sep 20, 2012

    This story has some potential " and keep in mind that Waid and Samnee inject a ton of humanity into this book, which makes it very easy to resonate with this book " but it's lacking the heat we've seen in this duo's earlier work. Read Full Review
