    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Nov 24, 2014

    If youre not already reading Daredevil then, why arent you? This issue is just as excellent as the previous nine, and everything before the reboot that Waid and Samnee have given us. It doesnt feel rushed with the pacing being pulled off very well, so if youre looking for a good example of how great modern superhero comics can be, then this is the series that youre looking for.

    We The Nerdy - Justin Micallef Nov 21, 2014

    This reviewer had the wonderful opportunity to meet Mark Waid at Motor City Comic Con in 2014. During this period, I fought with a lot of the same demons that Matt struggles with throughout his life. I told Mark Waid how much his book meant to me and he looked me in the eyes and said: "I could never write a cynical story foryou.I couldn't do that toyou.Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock are two broken people who need each other". I walked away with tears in my eyes. I closed this book with tears in my eyes. Thank you Mark. Thank you Chris. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Nov 20, 2014

    In this concluding chapter of the face-off with Purple Man and his Purple Children (with nary a Prince to be seen), "storytellers" Mark Waid and Chris Samnee bookend their tale with one of the most simple, effective and touching narratives on depression in recent comics. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Dan Gehen Nov 21, 2014

    Daredevil #10 nicely wraps the Purple Man arc, but also directly addresses one of the more prevalent mental disorders – one that affects millions of people around the world. Waid and Samnee are effectively making Matt Murdock a greater symbol than he already is. Not only is he someone that can bringhopethe physically handicapped, he now can also be look to as a beacon of light for those suffering from various mental issues. He is a truly inspirational figure, which is the mark of a hero. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tres Dean Nov 20, 2014

    This issue is a masterful look at what depression can do to those who suffer from it. Waid and Samnee utilize the look and feel of the world they've created over the course of the run to expertly portray Matt's symptoms and mental state. It's really special stuff. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Kalem Lalonde Nov 23, 2014

    This issue was a change of pace for the usually cheerful and upbeat tone Daredevil has to offer. It evokes sadness in the reader with effective moments of silence and an astounding definition of depression. Daredevil continues to be one of the strongest comics on the stand and with Waid’s run coming to an end, he’s amping up the emotion for an explosive finale. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Nov 24, 2014

    Chris Samnees art is key to bringing Matt Murdocks depression to life on the page. He continues to redefine how to visually represent Daredevils powers in exciting ways. His story telling is crystal clear, as always, and this time things get bloody and brutal. Waid and Samnee close out this arc in a satisfying and emotionally resonant fashion. Read Full Review

    The problem with the Purple people is almost too smoothly taken care of, but the aftereffects will be intriguing to keep track of. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Nov 19, 2014

    The final pages of this issue make me so completely excited to see what Mark Waid and Chris Samnee have next for poor Hornhead. Without going into any spoiler territory, though the characters got a great cast of villains, and Waids even given us some brilliant ones both of his creation and from elsewhere in the Marvel U, his greatest foe has always been himself. That sounds trite, and maybe it is, but that doesnt mean it isnt true and that especially doesnt mean that Waid isnt ready to crack his knuckles and give us a Matt Murdock story weve never seen before.

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Nov 24, 2014

    None of this is to denigrate everything else Waid and Samnee do here. They're both very strong comic creators, and there's a lot to look at and enjoy here. They understand how to tell a story, even adding in little nods to the comic book single issue format and using it add in an extra little punch that will probably be lost in a collected format. The art is great, the script is sound. But it's nice to see them telling a story that's about far more than just fighting bad guys. While it would sadly sell a lot less than an issue of "Daredevil," I'd love to see Waid and Samnee collaborate on a non-superhero, creator-owned title down the line that continues to explore these sort of issues and ideas. They're talented, and they've shown us yet again what they're capable of. Until then, though, I'm more than happy to continue to read strong issue after strong issue of "Daredevil" every month. This book is, once again, a keeper. Read Full Review
