    AIPT - Christopher Franey Jul 22, 2020

    Seriously, this issue, like much of the series, gets top marks in regards to story, art, and character. This is the perfect jumping on point because what is going to come next may blow your mind. Other comics have the "aftermath" issue and this was one of them, but the drama doesn't stop. Great forward movement of plot points and strong growth for Matt Murdock. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jul 22, 2020

    Daredevil #21 is a fantastic issue that beautifully bookends one arc before unleashing the readers on another. The writing by Zdarsky is among his best of his run, and his understanding of the character Matt Murdock is evident in every page. Both Checchetto and Iacono fill this issue with emotion and atmosphere. So many of the panels are achingly sad, but they are so well crafted that you cant help but be in awe of it. Daredevils ordeal is far from over. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jul 22, 2020

    Daredevil #21 marks a mighty turning point in Matt Murdock's life. It's the inevitable conclusion of almost everything this volume has done with the character. But it's not a finale; this issue bangs the gong to celebrate the return of Daredevil (with supremely talented storytelling) while also charting out a dark new path ahead of him. Read Full Review

    Daredevil #21 continues the trend of excellence that Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto have been known for on this series. The consequences of Matt Murdock's actions and decision are felt throughout this issue. How it all works together to tell a greater story makes what happens next even more exciting to see play out.

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jul 22, 2020

    I am, at times, and can also see why some fans may be, a bit frustrated with Daredevil #21. We are again left with more questions than answers, and it does seem that this storyline is dragging on a bit. I am interested, and every time I think I am over it Zdarsky pulls me back in, but at times I am kind of waiting for something new to happen, as well. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jul 22, 2020

    Daredevil is the best book on the shelves right now, and Chip Zdarsky kicks off his next huge storyline this month, and it's going to be a doozy. This issue is one of those transition issues between big arcs and is mostly setup for what's to come. It's still a must-read for Daredevil fans, but if you aren't reading this book, I suggest you get your head checked and start from the beginning of the run. It's well worth the time and effort.

    An explosive climax can easily lead to a messy denouement, which makes Daredevil #21 an essential turning point for one of Marvel's most impressive series given the choices it must address. Read Full Review
