    This entire series has been great, but this issue in particular was really enjoyable. Things are beginning to come together for Matt in this issue. He's finally beginning to understand the problems he's had in the last two or three issues of the series, and it's kind of crazy. Waid doesn't just tell a great story with really good pacing; he also takes a classic Marvel villain and turns him into this really threatening, really formidable adversary. It's definitely a great twist that I personally did not see coming. Once again, the art is stunning. I love the heavy inks that give this book a darker feel; it's definitely appropriate for this comic and really meshes well with the overall tone of Daredevil's character. This is a well written, edge-of-your-seat adventure that you will not want to miss. It is an issue that definitely left me wanting more. Read Full Review

    Youll hear it from comic fans everywhere, from every site, and likely from every LCS owner, read Daredevil. Theres a reason why that opinion is consistent and found everywhere, because its true, everyone should be reading Daredevil. Waid, Samnee and Rodriguez have crafted yet another masterful issue, probably the most exciting one of the entire run. #19 is bested only by the incredible #7 for best issue of the series.

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Oct 23, 2012

    If you aren't already, you really should be buying this comic. There's a reason why it keeps winning awards: great art, sharp writing (you never know what's going to happen next) and compelling events - it's a terrific comic! Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Oct 17, 2012

    Chris Samnee is as amazing as ever. His art adds to the old-school feel, with hand-drawn sound effects and an emphasis on just the right points. For example, Hank Pym wearing a lab coat over his costume. Or Daredevil clipping a giant clothes pin on his nose to block out nasty smells. It's those kind of things that add to the fun tone of this book. If you aren't reading Daredevil, you are failing so hard. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Chris Wilson Oct 23, 2012

    There's not much else to say about Daredevil that hasn't been said before. Mark Waid and Chris Samnee continue to bring the goods, month in and month out. This issue is no exception as the action and tension is ramped up. If you're not reading Daredevil, I strongly urge you to start picking this book up and even get the previous trades (or hunt down past issues if that's your thing). You won't be disappointed.

    Marvel Disassembled - Mike Oct 19, 2012

    By the end, Coyote's real identity is revealed and it's a shocker. One that I truly didn't see coming.I'm eager to find out just how he was able to pull off the tricks he's been plaguing Daredevil with lately (Thehallucination ofMilla Donovan in Matt's apartment for instance). I hope it doesn't go unexplained or is overlooked. Read Full Review

    Daredevil #19 is a knockout that "Battling" Jack Murdock would be proud of... Though, it's not like he'd want to see his son decapitated. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Oct 22, 2012

    Having that instant feeling that you are about to read a comic that is truly special is a rare feeling to have. But when you do get that feeling it just makes the comic a must read. That is exactly what Daredevil #19 is. With a strong mix of adventure and drama Mark Waid continues to male Daredevil a must have comic every month. If this comic is not on your pull list I highly recommend changing that right away and buying this comic. Read Full Review

    It was always clear that not all is as it seems in regards to the situation with Matt Murdock's current state that he finds himself in. This issue confirmed that for us, and also makes you intrigued as to how everything will play out in the next issue or so. I am sure Matt will find a way to get rid of Coyote, but how is he supposed to convince those closest to him that all is well? I cant wait to find out. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Alex Evans Oct 21, 2012

    This issue does so much right – the art is awesome and the idea of a Daredevil horror story is a great one…but that was a pretty big gaffe with respect to Foggy. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Oct 22, 2012

    The problem with this book just happens to be where the plot is going. We've seen the villainous Coyote before " at least, Waid makes us think we have " but the evolution for him getting to this point doesn't quite make a lot of sense. Furthermore, the bedeviling of Matt Murdock winds up raising more questions than it solves. There are a ton of opportunities for Matt to have been wiped out, no muss, no fuss, so Waid is going to have to work double-time to explain that one away. But if Waid can do it, he's going to have one excellent storyline on his hands... one that might give Daredevil a lasting addition to his already killer rogue's gallery. Read Full Review

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

    "Daredevil" #19 is Waid back on pitch perfect form for Daredevil. This issue has more action than laughs, but it's from the heart and it all works towards something. This run means something and it's all tested in this issue. The panel transitions, the high concept ideas, and the stunning storytelling generates something a modern audience can grasp even though this might be the darkest '70s tale ever told.

    Daredevil continues to be one of the best titles from Marvel right now, and I have no doubt that even through the launch of Marvel's numerous new NOW titles it'll remain in that spot. Read Full Review

    Meanwhile, with the help of Henry Pym, Daredevil makes a discovery that leads him to search out the C-list villain he believes is behind his life falling apart only to discover he's not a C-lister anymore. Daredevil might not be crazy, but no his life is in the hands of a madman, and, should he escape, he'll have an entire city's police force hunting him down. The man without fear has had better days. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comics Crux - Nick Verissimo Oct 17, 2012

    While this arc probably doesnt hold up to the last one, I still really enjoyed this issue.  Its a little safe, but I hope that Foggy and Matt do stay apart even longer and things get a little darker.  Matt, despite being setup, needs to examine himself and his actions a little bit more and the end of this arc should hopefully touch on that.
