    Daredevil #3 is actually the end of the first story arc for this new series, which Waid ends on an interesting and damn funny note that should have readers excited for next month's issue to see where this all goes. As an added note, a tip of the hat is in order to Mark Waid for making a goofy villain such as Klaw interesting and menacing as a Daredevil foe. He was dealt with pretty quickly here, so let's hope he shows up again down the road, you know, just so Paolo Rivera has a chance to draw him again. If you've been enjoying this series thus far, Daredevil #3 will not derail the train. And if you haven't yet dabbled into Waid and Rivera's Daredevil, for shame, as it's arguably the best book Marvel is currently putting out. Read Full Review

    This issue is entertaining. The art is incredible, and the story is pretty good. It's nice to see a classic character like Klaw make an appearance in this series. While there are certainly some inconsistencies, this continues to be a fun series. However, I don't know how necessary it is to stress to the reader that Murdock's a ladies man -- We get it. He likes the ladies. In all seriousness though, good issue. New readers should at least pick up issue #2 in order to get a solid understanding of the story here. Read Full Review

    Rivera is great at action. I like how he drew the decomposing sound-based villain. Thats some ingenious design. However, he should not be doing any more cover for Daredevil. This one was so uninspired that were this series not already in my pull list, I would not have picked up this book based on its cover. Its really an ugly cover that feels like its from a 1980s comic book. Read Full Review

    Maybe Waid's new idea for the firm of Nelson and Murdock will be much more interesting than it came across in this issue. But so far, it doesn't fill me with confidence. That's a shame, because everything else in this issue was great. Here's hoping the good elements show up more regularly than this potentially bad spot. Read Full Review

    The real fun of this issue, however, comes in the conversations between Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson as the figure out a way for their client to win his case, talk with some attractive women at a local watering hole (careful, they might be super-villains), and decide the new direction of their law practice. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Eh. For whatever reason this comic just didn't do it for me. The Klaw story bored me and Matt's ultra-happy personality STILL disturbs me(he's more Peter Parker than Matt Murdock now). The law consultation plan actually seems like a good idea considering that Matt really can't work a case in court without the opposing lawyer constantly accusing him of being Daredevil. Besides that, I guess we'll learn down the road who the mystery person assisting Klaw was, so there's that to look forward to at least. Overall though, at least to me, this issue was a massive step back from the first two issues. Read Full Review
