    The artwork is as gritty as the story, and the figure we see at the end is genuinely maniacal. There's splashes of red that simplyhas to be bloody injuries, it's chilling. His image suits the character of somebody who'd perform these atrocious attacks though, so the artist has done a bloody good job. Read Full Review

    It's tough to come up with a compelling high concept in today's superhero landscape, but Soule makes Daredevil #11 one of the best books of the week. Read Full Review

    Leave it to Charles Soule to take a great premise (the legal and moral battle over a "blood painting" containing the DNA of over 112 missing persons) and make it even bigger in scope by drawing The Inhumans into the conflict. Read Full Review

    That balancing act, between high minded moral quandaries and twisted villainy recalls Ann Nocenti and John Romita Jr.'s iconic run on Daredevil. Daredevil #11 is an issue that's equal parts Hannibal and Enter the Dragon and that's a fine, unexpected balance for Charles Soule and Ron Garney to walk but it's also the most compelling story they've told yet.

    I do like the central conceit of the Dark Art story so far. Its a pretty original idea by Soule and takes Daredevil in a direction that isnt overly familiar. Im interested in where Soule and Garney go with this. Although its hardly a perfect issue, much of it is a moody and engaging story, highlighted by strong artwork. Hopefully, Soule and Garney have an even more creative direction for this now that we have met Daredevils foe. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 15, 2016

    As for the mysterious villain, it appears he was just getting started with the blood painting. A new macabre work of art is discovered involving the bodies of several people positioned in a full scale diorama. It's still unclear just what the artist is after. Publicity? Flaunting the police (and Daredevil's) inability to capture him? Or something more? As for Matt Murdock's day job, it will be interesting to see how far a man respecting justice above all else may be pushed before something eventually breaks. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 12, 2016

    There's not a lot of action this go round. This issue seems to primarily focus on trying to strengthen the plot. While there is so much that you could do with this story, I feel like I'm a little underwhelmed with what is presented here. The art is not bad but I am starting to think that the Daredevil costume itself is starting to bother me a little. There just doesn't seem to be anything that stands out to me about it like in previous costumes. It's just kind of there. I would like to see the story and action pick up some next issue. While I am trying to remain patient and optimistic, I feel like the flames need to get turned up on this one. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Sep 8, 2016

    This series is not bringing anything exciting and this issue especially is a lot of nothing happening. I think it’s time for a creative team shuffle up. This series may be some peoples taste but it is definitely not mine, which is a shame because Daredevil is my all time favourite. Read Full Review
