    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Oct 23, 2013

    Daredevil got a shot in the arm after Bendis and Maleevs superlative run, and while I have tremendous respect for that, as well as Brubaker, Lark and Diggles efforts, I feel like Mark Waid gets the character in a way that he hasnt been since his very inception (and maybe, in a weird way, even more than that). His perfect balance between light-hearted wackiness and absolute, deadly seriousness as well as his ability to pull from the VERY obscure parts of the Marvel pantheon (REMEMBER WHEN HE FOUGHT KLAW?!?! HOW DID THAT NOT HAPPEN SOONER?!?!) and make them absolute masters of terror the likes of which theyd never been before. This book definitely seems to be veering into goofy territory, but I have learnt never to assume anything about the direction I think this Daredevil book is going, but I do know that four weeks is WAY too long to wait for another. Somehow, Ill manage. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Oct 23, 2013

    As usual, Chris Samnee delivers page after page of stunning artwork. Without a doubt, Samnee is a legend in the making, a guy that future comic artists will study. I've said it before, but he is the closest thing we have to a modern day Jack Kirby, and that's about as big of a compliment as I can pay someone. Javier Rodriguez's colors are as vibrate and beautiful as ever while Joe Caramagna reminds us that great lettering can make or break a comic (it makes Daredevil, for sure). Let's all cross our fingers that this team sticks around, because Daredevil is as good as it gets. Read Full Review

    But, in closing, to be completely honest, the only bad thing about this issue is that it ends. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Oct 27, 2013

    From almost any other writer, this issue would be the comic book version of jumping the shark, but Waid and Samnee blithely pull off the change in direction like it was meant to be. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Oct 27, 2013

    Throw in lots of clever bits of business, an unexpected final twist, and a guest appearance by some of Marvel's mightiest monsters, and it's yet another in a long line of terrific issues in this series. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matt Dodge Oct 25, 2013

    Every issue of "Daredevil" from Mark Waid and Chris Samnee feels like it has the same amount of plot, action, and excitement that is normally found in a three issue arc of most other series. They continually buck the trends of decompression and gritty realism found in many comics, and still craft stories that are entertaining, fun, and very engrossing while remaining true to the character. "Daredevil" #32 is a rare example of a book that has a fun holiday theme, but will not seem incredibly dated three months from now. Read Full Review

    Waid and Samnee are a smashing team. Their Daredevil brings a life to the story we haven’t seen since Brubaker and Miller. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Kassim Mirza Oct 25, 2013

    So all in all, Waid and Samnee have found a way to continually make Daredevil one of the best reads you can pick up on Wednesday. Was this issue the best? No. But it does set up some really interesting plot devices. That being said, Daredevil #32 might not be the best jumping on point for new readers. If you want to jump on this title, start from a few issues back, then read on. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Derek Baker Oct 24, 2013

    Well, its another month and another fantastic issue of Daredevil. As a fan of both Halloween and classic movie monsters, this issue was particularly great. As Waid and Samnee start to wrap things up, fans will be both sad and pleased. We dont want these guys to go, but you know they are going to send Daredevil off in style. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - MikeFitz538 Oct 27, 2013

    The ending is a good one, but ever since the mystery of the Bullseye plot line has been resolved, I've felt that Daredevil has been good but not great. I hope DD's interaction with the League of Monsters changes that. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 30, 2013

    The comic ends with Daredevil interrupting a good ‘ol Southern lynch mob only to later realize the group is after actual monsters and he may have chosen the wrong side. The result is a somewhat forced Halloween adventure that ends in yet another cliffhanger and more trouble and no new answers for our hero. For fans. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 28, 2013

    "Daredevil" #32 is a strange comic, and if it had focused on just one half or the other I think it might have been much more successful. Hopefully next issue will be a bit more on the same page; the ideas are good, but just not all at once. Read Full Review
