    Great way to start off the new decade with beautiful art and amazing drama in the world of Daredevil. I just love the moment of Matt facing what he can do with his powers but also what it means due to his faith. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 5, 2020

    From the moment Daredevil #16 begins Chip Zdarsky, Jorge Fornes and Nolan Woodard draw you into the story and don't release their hold until the very last panel. Every character that appears on a panel is character you are invested in. Whether its major characters like Daredevil, Elektra and Wilson Fisk or new characters such as Detective Cole North and Joe Cararro, there is a reason to be invested every word and decision they make. It's all just further proof that Daredevil is one of the best comic books on the market today. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Jan 10, 2020

    A great read! Zdarsky does a lot of storytelling with very few words. Add to that Fornes' excellent art and Woodard's amazing colors, and you've got one great comic. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jan 2, 2020

    Daredevil is my favorite book on the shelf today and while I wasn't a fan of the art in this issue, the combination of ninja hacking action and kickass character moments had me the whole time reading. I keep recommending this book to anyone who will listen and it might be time to take the fight to those who won't! Even if you hate my guts, read this book and maybe you will like my guts a tiny bit more. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Jan 3, 2020

    Can Matt Murdock Just Lock Down Elektra?The opening scene with Madame Natchios has been a delightful ongoing theme these past few issues. Murdock can't seem to get over the fact that she kills people, even though she's been graciously avoiding any killing while training him. Our protagonist is also feeling guilty from his recent involvement with a married woman. But, alas. His character's iconic Catholic guilt creates the idealistic stoicism that makes Murdock Daredevil. Both Elektra and I are probably both doomed to be frustrated by a character we're intrigued by. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Jan 1, 2020

    The addition of Jorge Fornes on art provides a much needed punch-up of style and presentation, one that readers should hope to see continue as every issue of this series should look as excellent as this one. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 7, 2020

    It's interesting to see Matt working with resources beyond his usual bag of tricks, and the Elektra bits are wonderful, as well. Add in some good art, and you've got yourself a winner. Read Full Review

    It's another issue that shows just how thoughtful of a writer Zdarsky can be and has been through his Marvel tenure. Read Full Review
