    Kabooooom - Brandon Griffin Jul 14, 2016

    After giving Daredevil #8 a perfect score, I swore to use that as the template to which I rate comic books, with that issue being almost impossible to match. What I didn't count on was Charles Soule not only following that issue with another heartfelt hitbut that it would also be plucking all different heart strings. If you aren't reading Daredevil right now, you are missing out on some seriously fantastic storytelling. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Jul 14, 2016

    The artwork in this issue is gritty throughout, though Spider-Man's detail makes him feel like a new entity in the comic – which is true. The artist has done a good job in capturing the signature tones and feels of a Daredevil comic, and the action panels are kick-ass. It's not the best art we've ever seen, but it's purposeful and works well with the storyline. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jul 13, 2016

    While not exactly the most explosive of team-ups, Daredevil #9 still manages to shine a new flattering light on one of Marvel's greatest heroic pairings while still staying true to why the two work so well together in the first place. Thanks to Charles Soule's emotional intelligence and sense of pacing, aided by Goran Sudzuka and Matt Milla's knack for simple and stylized artwork, Daredevil #9 mines a bit more out of this team-up than just base level entertainment. There is always fun to be had seeing two heroes taking on rooms full of thugs, but its even better when the creative team presents them as human beings and that is exactly what Daredevil #9 does.

    Now that we know what Daredevil was after, let's see just how he plans to use it. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ian B Jul 13, 2016

    Ultimately, I enjoyed this issue. It was a slightly silly romp with Daredevil showing his lighter side, something Daredevil rarely does, while paling around with a fellow superhero. The ending felt slightly off, and we still haven't gotten a real explanation for why everyone has suddenly forgotten that Matt Murdock is Daredevil, but the explanation seems less important than the stories that they are telling surrounding it, such as Matt's return to law and his ability to go under cover as a gambler, rather than having a highly recognizable face. With a return to New York and a focus on gang leaders and street level villains hinted at by the end of this issue, I expect that Daredevil will continue to be one of the most solid quality books going at Marvel for at least the foreseeable future.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jul 14, 2016

    Charles Soule does his best to get the most out of this particular team-up, adding Peter Parker to the mix as Matt Murdock continues to put his unseen plan into play. The resulting issue has its fair share of web-slinging and baton tossing, but it's the strong character elements that prove the most investing Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jul 18, 2016

    You won't find a ton of progression in this five-part story, but it is a lot of fun and features Spider-Man, who only increases that fun. Goran Suduka's art steals this show in this issue, as he renders cityscapes and interiors and compressed musculature with equal aplomb and a unique style. I'll definitely be keeping my eye out for his work in the future, and considering how unique and lively it is, I should have no trouble spotting it going forward. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Cain Winstead Jul 15, 2016

    While Daredevil #9 offers a better conclusion than the conclusion to Soule's previous arc, this series still has problem finding its footing. A team up with Spider-Man offers a nice serving of nostalgia, even if it is ultimately of little consequence. Read Full Review
