    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Apr 23, 2014

    It looks like, despite renumbering and a completely different location, were still getting the same high-quality Daredevil weve come to expect from this creative team. The change to San Francisco has not only given the setting a different flavor, but changed the character lineup significantly, making it far, far more than merely a palette swap. The last time Waid and Samnee revived an old character from total obscurity, we got the absolutely terrifying Spot Centipede and I cant wait to see what happens with this newest revived villain. This book is nothing but potential, and its going to be an incredible ride seeing it fulfilled. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Tyler Goulet Apr 24, 2014

    Okay thats a whole lot of praise for a series that, by now, everybody should be reading even if you wouldnt consider yourself a fan of Daredevil. These guys will make you a fan within a few issues, no question, and youll have one of those Oooohhh moments where you finally realize why everybody raved about the last volume and why everybody is already raving about this volume. Its like a master class in comic book creation every month by three guys who do what they do better than almost anybody else out there. Buy it, read it, love it, cherish it while its here. As much as we all want Waid, Samnee and Rodriguez to stay on Daredevil forever, its probably not going to happen. But, hey, we can dream. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Apr 25, 2014

    Visually, the book needs to balance a charming little dinner scene with some sinister plot developments, and Samnee nails it. His animated styleworks well with every story beat Daredevil #2 hits. Again and again, its hard to find fault withthis wonderful series. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III Apr 25, 2014

    The team of Waid and Samnee are at the top of their game still in this new volume of Daredevil and from the looks of #2, it will be a long time before there is a lull. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Asaph Bitner Apr 27, 2014

    “Daredevil #2″ was a fun issue, filled with the standard high level of writing ant artwork we've come to expect from Mark Waid and Chris Samnee. Samnee often manages to excel in small ways that show his great skill, such as the way he portrays Daredevil and The Shroud's different “radar senses”. Overall, this was another pretty great issue, with a cliffhanger that leaves us curious and eager. Read Full Review

    Mark Waid and Chris Samnee's Daredevil is rarely anything less than a pleasure. Issue 2 keeps that track record in tact in spectacular fashion. Read Full Review

    Our latest antagonist is a bit derivative and easy to read, but he reveals enough layers to make him a formidable challenge. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush May 10, 2014

    With the surprising end, Waid and Samnee have set up the Shroud to be a significant character in Daredevil, at least for a few issues. I think it would be fascinating if the double element was explored further. Will Matt Murdock see anything of himself in Max Coleridge the way Max sees himself in Matt? Will that make Matt question his approach to his new home city? Well soon see in the pages of Daredevil. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - David Hinspeter May 28, 2014

    I have to say I loved the choice of the new rival for Daredevil. A man with martial arts training, blindness, and powers allowing him to function beyond his infirmity is perfect to tango with the Man Without Fear. He is also, apparently, the strategic match for Matt, allowing himself to lose a fight to draw the red clad devil right into his trap. I can't wait to see where this dance is going, and look forward to the next issue with fearless anticipation Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Apr 30, 2014

    A poor man's Daredevil in several respects, the Shroud is an interesting first choice to pit against the hero, although it does make me wonder how far Waid and Samnee will have to scrape the bottom of the Marvel barrel for West Coast threats going forward. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Apr 23, 2014

    "Daredevil" #2 continues what Waid and Samnee have been doing for a while, now: telling excellent "Daredevil" stories. If you haven't been reading the series, this shift to San Francisco is a great opportunity to jump on board. Read Full Review
