    It's a strong issue with an unexpected twist at the end - and it'll have you wondering how DD can ever move back to the hero side of the equation again. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Dec 13, 2017

    Daredevil #596 is a great superhero comic book; the creative team made this issue a lot of fun and brought out some very interesting story points that will have definite repercussions as this storyline continues. I have not heard a lot of people talking about this Daredevil run, and if you haven'tbeen reading it, you should. Soule has been doing an excellent job since taking over when it relaunched, and there has been a great rotation of artists. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Justin Cooper Dec 27, 2017

    Daredevil Comics have always balanced a tightrope between stunning Superhero Action mingled with Courtroom Drama. This dichotomy is the basis upon why he has been such a successful character for so long. He catches the Criminals and then makes sure to prosecute them to get them off the streets. This story weaves in the three main elements of a great Daredevils story seamlessly. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Dec 14, 2017

    The first issue was heavy on the dialogue and lighter on the action. There is nothing wrong with this approach, especially when the back and forth is a well-written word tussle between Matt Murdock (Daredevil) and Mayor Wilson Fisk. Issue 596, though, explodes with excitement as Daredevil finds himself on the wrong side of the law in Fisk's New York City. We see Murdock and law enforcement in true crisis mode, trying to make sense of a peculiar set of orders regarding the Man Without Fear. As emergency orders demand, everyone has to act and react with no time to catch their breath. In real time, the comic can't be covering more than a ten minute time period and that pace is felt by the reader. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Dec 16, 2017

    Despite having a fairly succinct plot, Daredevil #596 is a compelling chapter in the saga of the Man Without Fear. He is being chased and brought low by his worst enemy, and now that enemy has the law on his side. Mayor Fisk is showing itself to be a promising arc for Matt Murdock, and I look forward to what follows. This one gets a recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Aaron Anderson Dec 18, 2017

    This is another issue that felt just a little forced at the beginning, but once you turn into the slide just a little bit it can be quite enjoyable. It really comes down to the cliffhanger. Lately Soule has really been delivering interesting cliffhangers again. I wouldn't mind a long story line with this status quo continually being the underlining plot going forward. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 14, 2017

    The series seems to be veering towards a more '80s-inspired aesthetic, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. Read Full Review
