    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Nov 8, 2017

    I could spend plenty of more time singing the praises of Soule's work, but I don't want to come off as too much of a fanboy and maintain some objectivity in my review...but, I don't think I would be successful in the latter. Let's just say that Daredevil is one of my favorite titles right now and if you like the gritty realism of the Daredevil Netflix series, and realistic and smart legal dramas (like the original Law and Order series) then you'll love Daredevil as much as I. Read it. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 8, 2017

    This is a true to form, almost classic style Daredevil story with Matt going up against Kingpin. It will be interesting to see how Matt overcomes a city that's siding with the Kingpin. Great, clean artwork throughout adds to the tension in many scenes. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Nov 10, 2017

    Despite the hang-ups Marvels recent stories bring to the context of this issue, Daredevil #595 is a great read and the start of an enticing new arc for the Man Without Fear. The beginning of Mayor Fisk establishes the premise well and lays on the tension in large servings. I highly recommend this one; give it a read. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Nov 12, 2017

    Daredevil #595 is a great start to what could be another classic battle between Kingpin and Daredevil. Charles Soule is a fantastic writer who really should be getting more praise for his work on this series. The art has some hiccups, but overall it really enhances the story being told and adds to the drama. When Wilson Fisk is the Mayor of New York City, you know things are bad, and they are only going to get worse unless someone stands up. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Michael D Nov 8, 2017

    If you haven’t been reading Soule’s Daredevil, now is the time to jump on. The story is off to a strong start, delivering exactly what legacy promised, a return to classic stories and classic villains. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Nov 10, 2017

    This arc is shaping up to be a satisfying culmination of the preceding stories with a major shake-up thanks to Fisk. Readers who haven't been following Soule's stellar run should have no trouble diving into this arc here. Soule's been telling classic Daredevil tales long before Marvel Legacy began, but now he seems to be raising the bar even higher. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Nov 13, 2017

    Daredevil #595 delivered a strong start to the Mayor Wilson Fisk-era of the Marvel Universe. This is a major change that changes the landscape of a lot major comic books Marvel is publishing. And Charles Soule does a very good job at getting over how big of a change this is and how it affects all Marvel superheroes. This in turn gave more weight to what Soule has done with Daredevil and what is to come for this series in the future. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 8, 2017

    The issue is good and has a lot of interesting concepts and for me this feels like a superhero comic that'll be cerebral going forward with not as much action but getting into the roots of superheroes being outlaws in some ways and the public turning against them. This is a different type of superhero comic away from big battles, the action, is a little different and very welcome. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Aaron Anderson Nov 13, 2017

    There are some intriguing story elements here that can be built upon, hopefully Soule takes advantage of them. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Nov 9, 2017

    Daredevil #595 stumbles and takes a couple of bombastic leaps of logic in the new storyline which still features fantastic art and the classic current vibe of the book. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 9, 2017

    As far as new status quos go, having Daredevil confront a world where New Yorkers have just elected Wilson Fisk their mayor is pretty swell. It's essentially Dark Reign in microcosm. Unfortunately, this series doesn't immediately make the most of that premise as it enters Marvel legacy. Read Full Review
