    No events and hype necessary - Daredevil #29 is as close to a perfect single issue as you're going to get until (probably) the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - kanchilr1 Jul 31, 2013

    This is yet another great issue of this series, I for one am tired of saying that. This comic rarely takes any missteps and is as close to perfection as a serialized story can possibly be. This is yet another crowning achievement in the famed comic book series. Read Full Review

    Comic Addicts - Anubhav Dasgupta Aug 5, 2013

    Ending with the most unexpected cliffhanger in months, Mark Waid's Daredevil continues its winning streak. If you haven't picked this up, yet, I highly suggest that you do so. Now. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Aug 4, 2013

    While there may be slight echoes of a certain "Court of Owls" story from the Distinguished Competition, the parallels between the two are only that they are the finest examples of mainstream superhero storytelling of this century. So far. Read Full Review

    I know there are a ton of great Daredevil stories from the past that I need to read, but these guys are providing me with everything I need for the time being. This series is just beyond good at this point. Good is a distant memory. Legendary is on the horizon, and approaching fast. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Tony Couto Aug 5, 2013

    Daredevil #29 encapsulates the current era of Daredevil – clever, charming and riveting, thanks to the light script and nuanced, moving art. Who needs an animated series, when you have a comic like this. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jul 31, 2013

    Javier Rodriguez is on pencils and colors again, and things look awesome. His characters are expressive and dynamic. The action is superb. Solid inking from Alvardo Lopez completes the package and makes Daredevil #29 a damn fine looking comic book. There a few pages that have a noticeable lack of backgrounds, but Rodriguez makes it work by keeping the colors bright and having them switch with tone and movement. Daredevil continues to impress, but you already knew that. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Aug 5, 2013

    "Daredevil" #29 is likely not a book that will blow your mind, or that will be remembered forever and put on a Top 10 list some day, but it's exactly the kind of strong "meat and potatoes" superhero stories readers should both hope for (and demand) in monthly comics. It doesn't break barriers or break all the rules, but it still manages to be smart and well-considered, beautifully drawn and engaging. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Simon Fitzgerald Aug 13, 2013

    We haven't seen the last of the Serpent Society and I hope that Nate sticks around too as his version of Matt's childhood is equally as biased as Matt's own is, but it's damn interesting. Read Full Review

    Daredevil #29 is sort of like the recent Clayface arc in Batman. It's definitely not the best work from a very gifted created team, but it's still entertaining nonetheless. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jul 31, 2013

    Each issue of Mark Waid's DAREDEVIL proves to be fun and entertaining. After all the craziness DD's been going through, we get a slightly calmer scenario in this story. That doesn't mean it's not as exciting, it just feels toned down a little. It's a good way for Daredevil and us to catch our breaths. Javier Rodriguez's art and colors carries on the tradition that we've been used to in this series. If nothing else, Mark Waid and Marvel have been spoiling us with this series. We also get a nice set up for future possible stories, an intriguing cliffhanger and a surprising guest for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Mike Aug 1, 2013

    Even still, every issue is a treat, both in story and writing. Each one is fun and entertaining and the art team on the series is perfect. This issue is just another reminder that it's one of the best Marvel series on stands right now. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 8, 2013

    Even if Daredevil gets out of the situation a little too cleanly (you'd think there would be a mountain of red tape to cut through after things died down) Waid delivers a tense issue that also foreshadows Murdock's new temporary partner. I know I have my guess as to her identity. What's yours? Worth a look. Read Full Review
