    When I heard there was going to be a crossover between Amazing Spider-Man and Daredevil involving a love triangle with the Black Cat, I'll admit, I was skeptical to say the least. Mark Waid has officially made me do a 180, because this is one of the most fun crossovers I can remember in recent history. Great character dynamics, even greater art, and a continued example of superhero comics pushing themselves into new and interesting places. I feel sorry for you if you haven't picked this up, because only a blind man could fail to see how beautiful this book really is. Read Full Review

    Sometimes people assume crossovers, no matter how big or small, automatically equate to a dip in storytelling quality. Let Daredevil be a case to debunk that theory. Crossover or not, Daredevil is still firing on all cylinders. Pick up this book. Read Full Review

    Count this as another dynamite issue for one of the most consistently excellent titles on the stands. Read Full Review

    Waid wraps up this issue with one big final twist that hits a little too hard at home for Matt Murdock, the man behind the cowl. Foggy has uncovered something in a local cemetery that will chill Murdock and send the Daredevil out into the night for answers. It's great wrap-up to a crossover, giving just the right amount of answers while leaving a new set of questions. Waid contrasts Daredevil as a man who always looks down the rabbit hole, trying to find the answer while Spider-Man only looks at the surface of the problem. Spider-Man pops out back into his own world while Daredevil is left to probe farther into this mystery. After all, the Man Without Fear never gives up on a case. Read Full Review

    The art and writing maintain its stylish noir that really sets itself apart from the other comics on the market. Read Full Review

    There wasn't much doubt that the conclusion to this crossover would be good given the first part and the quality of "Daredevil" so far. Still, to have a comic live to up to expectations and not disappoint is a victory in and of itself. Read Full Review

    Although I'm not sure how the missing corpse of Matt Murdock's father is going to play into the next story arc I did like how learning about it derailed Daredevil's make-out session with the Black Cat. The pair could make an okay couple swinging over rooftops but I'm having trouble seeing Matt Murdock and Felicia Hardy together anywhere outside of the (probably very steamy) bedroom. Best of the week. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Jan 21, 2012

    If you picked up Amazing Spider-Man #677, then you absolutely need to buy this issue to see how the entire things ends. I like Waid's ability to take each issue of the crossover to focus on that titles main character, without making the story seem like it is only half finished. Kano's art shines on every page, and one could (though I wouldn't recommend it) disregard the word balloons and let the art tell the story itself. Daredevil #8 is worth picking up and earns 4 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - Benjamin Kahan Jan 26, 2012

    The cover is the only art Paolo Rivera contributes to Daredevil #8, and unfortunately, I'm not that impressed. I like the upside down duality between Spider-Man and Daredevil, creating something of a very red ying-yang, but it's just boring honestly. Doesn't communicate the mood or plot of the story at all beyond the fact that Spider-Man is in it. Just standing around on a fire escape, it's boring. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson Jan 18, 2012

    The art from Kano is solid enough. It’s reminiscent of Paolo Rivera’s work in earlier issues where the lines were thinner and the shading bolder. Kano keeps things very neat and centrally focused in his panels. When he opens that focus up, it feeds into the motion of the scene, which ramps up the action. As good as the art is, it just can’t save Daredevil #8, a thoroughly disappointing end to a story that started with great promise. Read Full Review
