    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Jul 1, 2013

    Daredevil #27 is a perfect comic. It closes the door on an arc that has been building since the first issue, and it does so smoothly. While Foggy's situation has yet to be resolved, the overriding darkness in Matt's life has been lifted and by the final page, you know that Daredevil is setting off into a brighter future. What's more celebratory, though, is Mark Waid and Chris Samnee who have, in this reviewer, created a Daredevil fan for life. This is the kind of series people will talk about for years to come, and I feel blessed to have experienced it. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - this issue? Of course we will. Jun 26, 2013

    Have you been reading Mark Waid's DAREDEVIL? Of course you have. You've been loving it, right? Waid and Chris Samnee have been so incredibly generous to Daredevil fans these past several issues. It's been such a fun and long ride, finally seeing how this story ends is great, if also a little sad at the same time. But we can assume there's more great stories to come. Samnee's art with Javier Rodriguez/s art is a visual treat. Every single page is packed with glorious art combined with Waid's fantastic story. Now that this story is over, I absolutely want to go back and read it all over again. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Simon Fitzgerald Jun 29, 2013

    And so ends two years worth of a story line, everything that we've seen has built up to this. All of the fights and all of the villains and all of the stories were building up to this one issue. In my opinion it was worth the wait. The ending felt good and it felt right. It felt like catharsis and it felt like a new beginning. Foggy has a long way to go, and if we're really lucky, Mark Waid will be the man to handle his care. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Mike Jun 27, 2013

    I'll admit, the final battle was a little anti-climactic. It reminded me of the last fight between Batman and Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. Both Matt and Bats get thoroughly trounced the first go around and then rise up to beat the final boss rather easily. Honestly, I understand it and it's completely practical. It had to go down this way. Limited pages means limited space to tell a story. Still – It was fantastic nonetheless and wrapped up fairly well. I honestly have nothing else to critique. This was that good. Read Full Review

    Chris Samnee's art is just awesome. The man is one hell of a storyteller, as he utilizes his Darwyn Cooke-esque style to the story's advantage. There are a lot of very subtle details that will make you go, "Hey, that was pretty cool!" I mean, you could take out all the dialogue in this issue, and you'd still have a coherent and engaging story.  Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jun 26, 2013

    Of course, Waid's master stroke wouldn't have played out so perfectly if it wasn't for the superb work of Chris Samnee. In an issue that features brutal fights, chemical blindings, and tons of shadows, the one thing that you'll remember is the smiles. Subtle little smiles that shine through the darkness. This is a comic that uses shadows better than almost anything in recent memory and it's those sly little grins that break through. It plays with you and muddles your expectations in all the best ways. Here's hoping Waid and Samnee hang around the Man Without Fear for a very, very long time. Read Full Review

    Daredevil is awesome. A series that reminds all of us why we started reading comic books in the first place. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jul 1, 2013

    A very strong conclusion to a gripping arc and an even more gripping storyline, though overall, it doesn't quite capitalize on all the potential drama it could have. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 5, 2013

    Daredevil #27 very much focuses on the hero out-thinking his opponents rather than using his enhanced skill-set to take them down. Because of this, and the quick wrap-up, we're left questioning whether Daredevil can actually beat Ikari and just who that masked man really is. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Jun 27, 2013

    The ending of this lengthy saga and its epilogue have swansong written all over it, but that simply isn't so, as Waid is slated to be back for future issues. Closing out many of the subplots from past issues, this issue is an excellent springboard for future storylines, and demonstrates why "Daredevil" remains one of Marvel's best titles.
