    This run on Daredevil is a testament to the strength of having a unique, talented colorist and penciller in your corner, particularly when you have a bold, specific vision of how the comic will look. It's still a book with a less than compelling villain, a not particularly solid grasp on Matt as a character and a style entirely in debt to Miller's iconic run, but as an artistic spotlight, it's a dynamite comic and a showcase of a comics' legend working at the peak of his abilities.

    Still, Blindspot could grow on us - and complaining about him does feel exceptionally nitpicky when you have all this gorgeous artwork to look at. Ultimately, Charles Soule's biggest success is just how easy it is to slip into Matt Murdock's life - both in and out of costume. Buoyed by some superb artwork by Garney and Milla, and this creative team reminds comic books readers and Netflix fans alike that now is a great time to be a Daredevil fan. Read Full Review

    The last scene is Matt Murdock, the prosecutor. The colors change to a sepia as Matt and his boss talk about losing the case. Once again, this nice change of pace in the art shows Garney and Milla have a understanding on showing the dual nature of Daredevil as a character. It's not only what he does with his mask on, but what he does in court that matters. This ends with Ten Fingers coming to see Matt Murdock in his offices. Does he know he's Daredevil? We'll have to wait and see. Each issue is getting better in terms of storytelling, with this issue being the best one so far. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Feb 3, 2016

    The book progresses at a natural pace, even if we are still in a set-up stage, and builds up strongly to the cliffhanger that will no doubt be enough to keep readers coming back for next months installment. From what weve seen in the first three issues the comic has a fresh, strong voice, and while there are a couple of minor problems that this issue such as Blindspot not being as well-developed as he could have been, thats all they are: minor problems.

    Everything that's old feels new again in Daredevil #3 as it takes inspiration from the Miller era and delivers yet another engaging take on the Devil of Hell's Kitchen. Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt Jan 28, 2016

    In the first two issues, the creators put a big emphasis on making Daredevil feel new again. They introduced a new villain in Tenfingers, gave Matt a brand new job as a prosecutor, and even gave the book a fresh new visual look. It's only the third issue, but suddenly those changes aren't quite feeling new enough. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Feb 4, 2016

    In one sense, it would be great if one of the first three issues of Daredevil had been a bit more outstanding. I wouldnt characterize any of these issues that way, but they have been solid. Soule and Garney seem to be building slowly, which is not necessarily a problem. However, they will need to really develop and end their first arc in a strong way to build momentum. As the art in the series gets crisper and more attention gets paid to Murdocks life, Daredevil could start to pay off on its potential. While we are not quite there yet, Daredevil #3 offers some excellent visual storytelling and enough new threads to be a good issue. Read Full Review

    Despite my reservations, the new run of "Daredevil" really is off to a fine start. Soule and Garney have given their run a strong voice and an interesting hook. The bones of an excellent first arc are here, but the creative team will need to draw out some of the thornier elements of Matt's new life to really hook me. Read Full Review
