Matt Murdock is a killer - but while he's serving his time as the masked vigilante called Daredevil, Hell's Kitchen has suddenly been left without a guardian devil.
Or it was, until ELEKTRA NATCHIOS took it upon herself to protect Murdock's neighborhood and his legacy as the NEW DAREDEVIL!
But she's already got her work cut out for her: WILSON FISK remains seated as New York's mayor, with TYPHOID MARY, THE OWL, HAMMERHEAD and other lethal - and FAMILIAR - foes at his beck and call...

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Mar 10, 2021

    Daredevil #28 is another amazing issue. Combining important social commentary with an investing storyline, Zdarsky and the art team return to their regular plot with ease. At the same time, the consequences of King in Black are heavy and preserving. This is a beautiful character-based comic, focusing heavily on the figures that are driving the story forward. Twinned with the revelations and action, this comic is an emotional rollercoaster. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - acnbat Mar 10, 2021

    Chip Zdarsky takes what I considered to be a so-called cooldown issue to reset after the King in Black tie-ins, and uses it as an opportunity to create a very "human" story, albeit with superheroes. The results are that it makes me care even more for the characters and the "world" they live in. Can't wait for the next issue! Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Mar 10, 2021

    This is a spectacular character issue with an interesting development at the end. Zardasky has a lot of plates spinning but he is the master at keeping them all in the air. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 14, 2021

    Daredevil #28 does a very good job in taking the time to reassert where this series is at after the events of King In Black impact so many different character arcs. While this issue does focus mostly on Matt Murdock's current prison sentence Chip Zdarsky also spends time developing the current arcs of Elektra Natchios as the new Daredevil and Wilson Fisk's current mindset as Mayor of New York City. How all of these developments arc working separately and together is what continues to make Daredevil the top comic book series that Marvel is currently publishing. Read Full Review

    An aftermath of King in Black shouldn't be this good.

    But it is. So good.

    It was a real good issue. I like kingpin as always. Elektra is finding her way and Matt is just having Matt type problems.

    Once again, Daredevil is amazing. Good art, very good writing, an interesting direction and lots of focus on character work.
    Elektra as Daredevil remains intriguing and I can't wait to see what for influence Alice will have on her.

    A pretty good issue but once again I find myself more interested in Elektra and Fisk than I am in Matt's quest to do what he believes is right. I've always enjoyed Fisk and Mary's dynamic and I'm excited to see where Zdarsky is taking them. Looks like Elektra has a new apprentice too. It would've felt weird if Alice was a one-off character since last issue focused so much on her. As for Matt's story: Brubaker did Daredevil in jail so much better than this.

    I'm really tired of Zdarsky shitting on Matt 24/7.

    SO GOOD. Fantastic issue dealing with mental health and self doubt. It's such strong character work for Elektra, Daredevil, and Kingpin. The ending too is just such a good cliffhanger, I just wish I can read this weekly instead of monthly

    Another great issue revolving around Matt, Elektra and Fisk's stories. Glad Checchetto is doing the whole issue.

    The masterpiece continues. Zdarsky and checchetto will be known as one of the greatest daredevil creative teams ever

    This was like stripping the soul, although Matt is somewhat self-flagellant, someone needs to wake him up, there are sightings that the danger to Electra or Matt is approaching, (mystery music) so it is possible that they are preparing the field for something interesting.

    Another amazing work of Chip. Yesterday Red Hood, and today Daredevil. Great week.

    I was skeptical about how this series was going to work with Daredevil behind bars. We manged to weather King In Black without sabotaging the ongoing plot and now we can concentrate on what a barbaric shit-hole prison really is and Matt has to deal with a new level of guilt, knowing how many people he's sent here.

    Amazing. Zdarsky, you've done it again!

    Really good issue that doesn't pretend that the criminal justice system is equal, the gall of it.

    Another win as Daredevil really gets put through the paces and is coming out looking like a loser. That shower fight scene, in the aftermath Daredevil should have got shot, if he really wants to experience the full spectrum of the penal system he serves. At least he's experiencing loss after loss,and "seeing" the affects of incarceration on those he gets locked up. This arc is "Empathy For Devils" not Dummies.
    And damn , that mask must have a must about it, huh ?
    And here goes Kingpin meddling with another one of Matt's lovers. From Echo , to Mary , and most infamously Elektra - Matt & Fisk really have a certain taste in women.
    It's almost like Kingpin plays the disapproving father role in Matt's love life.
    And speak more

    I'm fully onboard this again. Great moments whether you agree or not it is still well crafted with some nice Checchetto art and really good coloring by Menyz.

    I thought that the whole situation of Matt would change when King in Black, however this number did not disappoint me, this is the part that I love about the Marvel writers, they deepen the real problems, their hereoes are human full of successes and errors, that generates empathy.

    My main problem with this issue is the central thesis that prisons are designed to help the imprisoned. That may be laudable (if oft-underfunded and ignored) side benefit, the main rationale is to Protect Society from the incarcerated. As well as to punish those for their crimes, and act as a deterrent and warning to those tempted to commit crimes. Matt's initial instinct - that he's not above the law and should suffer the consequences of his actions - is correct.

    Daredevil is still my favorite book coming from Marvel. However Elektra as Daredevil and Matt being in jail is slowly starting to grow stale for me.
