    All told, while it's nice to see these characters back in the pages, this annual doesn't make for required reading. Read Full Review

    That's not necessarily a bad thing but it is odd and raises strange questions about why Soule doesn't let his authorial voice shine through here. Still, it offers a solid, easy read for lapsed Daredevil readers and a valid entry point for someone looking to try the current run on the character. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Aug 8, 2016

    Two fairly tepid stories that seem unlinked to the prevailing narrative make for a pretty disappointing issue of Daredevil. This iteration of the character seems burdened by past versions and pays a lot of service to the Daredevil fanboy, but provides little in the way of interesting stories or characterization. I mean here, Matt Murdock is District Attorney of New York, yet the last time we saw him in his civilian garb was three issues ago--and then he was in a Chinese casino, not litigating at all! The whole thing seems like a missed opportunity, and as we head into another renumbering I wonder if I should bother being attached to this book at all.  Read Full Review

    Annuals are usually the place for creators to stretch their legs and try new things, but Daredevil Annual #1 offers nothing new and stands as a fun, but flawed one-shot. Read Full Review

    Much like the former storyline, Melvin Potter is a character who has been absent for years. His last appearance was in the shocking murder-mystery, Daredevil: End of Days from 2013. Even worse, Potter's last appearance as Gladiator was in 2007's Daredevil #99, but suddenly, without any sort explanation, he is back as Gladiator! Once again, readers can only hope this story will play a part in Soule's main Daredevil series, but until it does, the entire annual issue seemed misplaced. Read Full Review
