    The Comicbook Dispatch - acnbat Feb 10, 2021

    Final Thoughts:Chip Zdarsky continues his stellar run of Daredevil with another exciting, yet thought-provoking issue. This second tie-in issue touches on the King in Black event all while not putting his “own” Daredevil story on the back burner at all. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Feb 10, 2021

    Daredevil #27 drives a steamroller over any objections to a crossover event, effortlessly using the opportunities presented by "King in Black" to make meaningful progress in developing its own plot and characters. This remains a must-read for followers of the title, and anybody who stumbles into Daredevil through the event will be treated to a dose of comics storytelling at the highest possible level of talent.

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Feb 10, 2021

    Another enjoyable issue from this great creative team. If you're gun-shy about this issue because it's a King in Black tie-in, don't be. You're not going to be lost or confused in the least. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Feb 10, 2021

    Daredevil #27 is an enthralling, action-packed second part to the tie-in. Zdarsky has successfully managed to combine the plot of his run with the event to the benefit of both. It has allowed for some important character development with some plot threads that are sure to be continued. There is a strong emotional core to the issue and the artists express themselves with new and fun designs. Read Full Review

    Even with so much chaos and unexpected symbiote storytelling, Daredevil remains one of the most compelling character studies in comics today, superhero or otherwise. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Feb 11, 2021

    Daredevil #27 is something of a mixed bag. It has the unfortunate job of juggling someone else's story with it's own, and all things considered, it does a pretty good job. It would be very easy for this to be awful, and it wasn't awful; it was solid. Plus, the tremendous artwork by Checchetto and Hawthorne did wonders for this alright story. I liked reading it, but I'm relieved that the next issue appears to be back to normal. Read Full Review

    As usual, Zdarsky kills it with another issue of DD. King in Black didn't slow this series at all and that just shows how good of a writer Zdarsky is. It also doesn't hurt that the art is still wonderful.

    Venomized Daredevil is such a tediously 90's concept that even Zdarsky can't make it sing, though he tries valiantly. Glad this is the end of that and we can get back to the good stuff.

    Really good issue, but slightly held down by the tie-in nature of it.

    I hate the whole Knull thing but I loved this issue. Zdarsky just knows exactly what buttons to pushh. Chechetto and Hawthorne again are perfect in this combination between the different scenes! Also those inks by Di Benedetto over Hawthorne pencils are sick and made the whole Venomized DD and Matt art POP!!

    Trade readers might be a little confused by the sudden alien invasion, but other then that, these last two issues have been really good. Amazing art from Checchetto as usual and some good character moments from Matt, Elektra and Fisk. I think most will agree though that these last two issues are a much better edition to the King in Black series then the actual Daredevil run.

    I really like that even though Matts in jail which has been done before. It really makes it feel fresh that hes in while elektra is out being DD. Good stuff even with the tie in.

    Despite being assimilated into his hive mind and playing host to a symbiote, Daredevil finds the strength to resist Knull’s influence. Strapping himself into an electric chair and having a fellow inmate hit the switch, Matt successfully frees himself from Knull’s symbiotic grasp.

    Matt Murdock is a man of God. It's an interesting part of his character. But the way Zdarsky writes Matt's faith is becoming kinda annoying. He's not usually so in-your-face about his faith. Now it's like he's on a mission from God like one of the Blues Brothers. Anyway, that's starting to be a pet peeve of mine with Zdarsky's Matt. Otherwise, this issue is a big fat pile of meh. I really don't know what to think of Daredevil anymore. At least the King in Black nonsense is mostly over with (even if Mary is still infected).

    I want Elektra to show more leg. Two of Matt's exes go at it and all I get as a reader is E playing possum on some Hand shit? I demand a rematch !
    Matt riding the lightning was dope, but that suit was such a tease! I could have done without all the religious talk though, Matt "The Choir Boy" Murdock could save that for the confession booth.
