    Fantastic issue! Chip is letting all the pots on the stove boil and it is going to be an entertaining disaster in the kitchen. Lots of setup here, but Chip has proven before that he can deliver. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jun 30, 2021

    Daredevil #31 is a phenomenal start to a new arc. With a high tempo and thrilling story, the series shows no sign of slowing down. Characters stride into the comic with a tremendous presence. There are no weak voices, no forgettable faces. The art is sensational and keeps the intense energy going from start to finish. Elektra and Daredevils greatest enemy is loose, and the possibilities of what that can mean are hair-raising. Read Full Review

    Daredevil #31 is incredibly competent superhero comics delivering a middle chapter with style; I won't complain about any of that, even if I won't remember many specifics (beyond Daredevil making a prison warden scream) next month. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Jun 29, 2021

    For comic book fans of a certain age, Frank Miller's time on Daredevil always features as the best run for this character. I would say however, that Zdarsky is quietly delivering a run that could quite easily be regarded in the same light, at least for this generation of fans. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - batbrad Jun 30, 2021

    Daredevil #31 is delicately balancing several plotlines at once. While Matt in prison does feel slightly like a retread, this issue begins to develop some urgency for Matt. It's almost like he has something to do besides serving his time. Elektra and Fisk remain the most interesting parts of the comic. The series continues a more grounded Daredevil, not unlike the Netflix series. Read Full Review
