    Den Of Geek! - Mike Cecchini Nov 24, 2012

    Fun, fast-paced and never, ever predictable, Daredevil is probably the comic I look forward to the most every month. Waid and Samnee are, for my money, the team to beat in superhero comics right now. Best three bucks I spent this week! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Nov 23, 2012

    "Daredevil" #20 is everything readers have come to expect from Mark Waid and Matt Murdock. Despite the bleak (and somewhat ridiculous) circumstances facing Daredevil, both Waid and Samnee are able to present a story that brims with hope and excitement. Truly that is a testament to the energy the creators bring to this title and the enthusiasm they have for Daredevil. Waid has masterfully reconstructed and rearranged Daredevil's entire world throughout the course of this series. In "Daredevil" #20, the writer and his aptly matched artist continue to build the world and contribute more depth and energy to Daredevil's collection of foes. I'm not a fan of Marvel's epidemic of double-shipping, but in this case, I do wish "Daredevil" #21 was a little closer to hitting the shelves. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee Nov 24, 2012

    Essentially, this was the perfect precursor to what is about to be the conclusion of this little collection of “Blind Man Bluffed” and being left off on such an intense note at the end of this issue, waiting for the next to find out what’s really going on is going to be quite the task.

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Nov 26, 2012

    Waid has built this arc up so much that even though we know Matt isn't crazy, he's nowhere near being out of the woods. The conflicts he has to deal with once getting back to New York City seem overwhelming, particularly the mess he's still in with Froggy. But Issue #20 shows once more that Daredevil is really one of the best comic books on the market, and Mark Waid one of the best comic book writers. It's easy to see why this series was given an Eisner Award. Read Full Review

    This is an Eisner Award winning series for a reason, and Mark Waid and Chris Samnee deliver yet another fantastic installment of this series.Daredevil is one of those titles that should be one of your favourites every month, and it should be near the top of your reading pile every week it come out. I am hoping for a bit more action next issue to top off this arc. Read Full Review

    The end of the issue sees Daredevil finally back in one piece (clever), however he is left in a tough situation which he is going to have to fight his way out from. We are also shown the real Spot being held hostage, which begs the question: "who the hell is this Spot then?!?" However, I am sure we will find out more, and as always I am eagerly anticipating the next issue. Of course, being safely in the knowledge that it is going to be excellent as always adds to the excitement of having it in my hands. It feels like the next couple of issues are going to be big ones as we have been left with a few questions from the last couple of issues. It looks as though the time for some of these to be answered is coming fast upon us. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 23, 2012

    It's pretty simple by this point: Daredevil is on a list of monthly must-reads from Marvel, alongside Hawkeye and the late, lamented Defenders, and if you're not checking it out, I recommend it highly. Daredevil #20 takes a goofy old concept, turns it on its head and transforms it into something truly horrifying with seeming ease, earning a well-deserved 4 out of 5 stars overall. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Mike Nov 22, 2012

    This series is just consistently solid. However I did think it was kind of lame how, after weeks of wondering who's been messing with Daredevil's life, it's revealed Coyote was behind everything, up until this issue at least when it's revealed someone else actually hired him. But I am eager tofindout who that is nonetheless. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Nov 21, 2012

    Mark Waid continues make DAREDEVIL a great read month after month. With Chris Samnee's art and the crazy situation Daredevil is (after literally losing his head last issue), this is continues to be a fantastic run. You wouldn't think this villain could cause this sort of damage but Waid keeps us on the edge of our seat as he pushes the story further along. It sort of felt as if this issue started reaching a conclusion a little too quickly but at the same time, we probably wouldn't want a headless Daredevil running around for too long. Waid's DAREDEVIL can always be counted on to deliver great and exciting adventures. You never know what he's going to throw at us next. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 28, 2012

    The Coyote story works far better, although bringing up (and showing) human trafficking as one of Coyote's new interests does feel a little unseemly for what has been up until now a pretty safe all-ages book. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review
