    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Feb 15, 2017

    This arc had a lot resting on it going in. Not only did it need to feel like a continuation of sorts of Waid and Samnee’s run, but also bridge the timeline between their’s and Soule’s in addition to fitting in tonally with the rest of Soule’s tenure on the title until this point. That’s a lot of balls to juggle, but thanks to the creative team’s work up until this point, they’re able to make it look easy. Having done a couple of arcs prior, they’ve clearly worked out the best way to work with one another and they’ve been waiting to tell this story for a while. Much like Samnee and Waid’s work, it feels mature and serious without an overbearing darkness and due to the respectful way that Kirsten is handled in addition to a late reveal, this feels like an arc that will be mindful of what’s come before.

    Soule and Garney are becoming as crucial to Daredevil as Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo were to Batman during the New 52. In Daredevil #17, they only scratch the surface of the big lingering question about Matt's identity. It's an appropriately timed break from the main story being told. This issue digs into what makes Daredevil who he is; it's effective and not overly complicated. I can't wait to see where we go next in "Purple Part II"! Read Full Review

    Soule clearly has more designs for this particular tale, having spent 17 odd issues planting its seeds. But he does provide a strong sense of direction buoyed by an even stronger emotional core. Read Full Review

    With one of the best creative teams going today, Daredevil #17 starts to pull back the curtain on how Matt Murdock did the voodoo that he did do to get back his secret identity. With a great story that allows us to peer inside and see just how Matt was impacted when he went public, this is an insightful tale further breaking down the man that is Daredevil. While not a lot happens in this issue, it is masterfully written by Soule and unfolded on a page by Garney and Milla. Wonderful stuff and a great appetizer to warm us up for the unraveling of a mystery starring one of Marvel's best loved heroes. If you were looking for a place to jump on, here it is.

    The best thing the Netflix series did was make DD interesting again, without dragging him back through hell or jail or demonic possession. Lets see if this can live up to that standard. Read Full Review

    Knowing it wasn't a deal with Mephisto or some mystical quick-fix from Doctor Strange narrows the list of possibilities. The reveal of the arc's villain may also be a major clue. Worth a look. Read Full Review
