    Waid's shorter "Daredevil" tales have been a real treat. Even in a small number of pages, the writer packs in moments of character, working a huge plot into each 20-page chapter. "Daredevil" continues to excite due to its unpredictable nature and the seamless way Waid and Rivera delve into genres to make the entire comic work toward a storytelling goal. "Daredevil" #9 is an excellent example of the potential of this series: horrifying, strange, smart and an experience not to be missed. Read Full Review

    As usual, Daredevil #9 is a fantastic superhero comic with surprising layers. As we tell you every month, if you're not picking up Daredevil, you're making a huge mistake. This series continues to be the best thing Marvel is putting out. Make sure this book is on your pull list. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Walt Richardson Feb 17, 2012

    The new volume of Daredevil has garnered plenty of critical acclaim since its debut, and this is just one more positive review to add to the pile. It's an entertaining book where the writer and artists are in almost perfect harmony, and stands as the prime example of how to do an ongoing superhero series. If you haven't been reading it, you better hunt down those back issues before it's too late. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 20, 2012

    Still, even though the sheer inventiveness of Daredevil isn't at its highest in this issue, a "solid" outing by Waid and Rivera is what would be considered a high point for many other superhero titles. To be honest, when most titles falter on their strong suits, they don't have anything to back it up with, and if we're going to lose out a little on Daredevil the Sensualist, I think seeing Daredevil as Man Made Demon is still a pretty good consolation prize.

    This was a pretty weird comic... Moloids robbing graves, Mole Man dancing with a corpse... Hell, I don't even NEED to list anything else! Just read that again... Mole Man was dancing with the corpse of a woman!!! That is BEYOND creepy! Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Feb 19, 2012

    As a single issue, Daredevil #9 doesn't do so hot. Waid's writing is too vague here to provide much meaning to what goes on, which makes for a surprisingly unsatisfying read considering everything that goes on. While the fact that this comic will look much better in trade isn't much of a consolation to those who actually picked it up in singles, Rivera's wonderful art definitely takes some of the edge off.

    Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed the issue, and I'm sure writer Mark Waid's explanation into the Mole Man's behavior is a good one. I'm just hoping the arc ends quickly and get back to the Black Cat and the mysterious FF artifact everyone is after. Worth a look. Read Full Review
