    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Oct 27, 2021

    Daredevil #35 is a thrilling conclusion to the arc. Zdarsky has ensured that other plot points have been put to the side so that this war with Bullseye is streamlined and entirely captivating. The use of characters that know each other so well shows an incredible understanding of this small corner of the world. The fights in this run have been drawn out and exhausting sometimes to wear down the reader. Great heroes and great villains are brought together in an expertly choreographed action thriller. Zdarsky and the brilliant artists are creating a new classic before our eyes. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Oct 27, 2021

    The penultimate issue of Chip Zdarsky's excellent Daredevil is a great issue that took me back to the issues right before Marvel's Civil War event. The groundwork is laid, and I can see how this builds to Mayor Fisk's big move for the upcoming Devil's Reign event. I loved how Elektra was spotlighted as a hero, which shows her growth. And as always, the art department on this book delivers astonishing sights!! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Clint Theron Oct 27, 2021

    Daredevil #35 depicts an epic battle of strength and wits between Elektra and Bullseye which culminates in a pretty satisfying conclusion. While I wish the early scenes of Elektra fighting the Bullseye Boys would have been easier to follow, the main event felt exciting and tense until the very end, when everything just sort of worked out conveniently.

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Oct 30, 2021

    Daredevil #35 is the issue before the big finale which also appears to be laying the groundwork for the upcoming "Devils' Reign" event. Issue 35 is likely the best showcase of showing how competent Elektra can be as the Devil of Hell's kitchen. I just wish Matt and the other Marvel heroes didn't show up and almost forget Elektra was even there. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Oct 30, 2021

    Daredevil #35 was billed as a second big showdown between Elektra and Bullseye and while we did get it, it was lackluster and diminished by questionable writing decisions elsewhere in the issue. Read Full Review

    Great conclusion to the hunt for Bullseye. All the major players were given something to do this issue; culminating in a satisfying conclusion to this arc while dropping interesting teasers for what is to come.

    There were some good scenes and I actually did enjoy the art. What I didn't like were the cheesy parts like when the heroes showed up or some of the Bullseyes fight.

    This was OK. Nothing to get me excited for Devil's Reign. It has come down quite a bit these last few issues. The way the fight scenes went down and how the heroes showed at the end was just dumb. The art on the fight scenes was confusing at times and didn't help.

    This wasn't the best penultimate issue. Mostly because of the art. When I saw Checcheto's art on the cover, I got hyped seeing this "grudge match" between Bullseye and Elektra. But I didn't get that. I know that Checcheto is working on Devil's Reign right now, but this art just isn't that good.

    And the writing? It's not the best Zdarsky has offered. Spidey felt off in the last issue and Bullseye isn't used properly. I miss when he used those cards. Or anything other than guns. It just makes him feel less of a threat.

    It's not bad. It's okay. But, I expected better.

    I made the mistake of getting a subscription to Daredevil through Marvel via Midtown Comics so I get to read this a month and a half after everyone else. I’m a fan of both Daredevil and Chip Zdarsky but this issue was a letdown. I get the impression that Zdarsky is just tired of writing this series and is focusing most of his efforts elsewhere, while hastily wrapping up his run here. As a result, Matt’s interpersonal struggle about doing the right thing and not acting as if he is above the law, a struggle which he has been dealing with this entire run, is just haphazardly dismissed. After three years, instead of a real resolution, what we get instead is an awkward close where Matt just impulsively decides he is in fact too good to follo more

    Even though I'm a big-time BLM/Defund pinko, it didn't feel good to see Spidey shame a random cop like that. It's a sentiment I agree with, but the time, place, and speaker were all wrong.

    But that didn't factor into my rating much. The initial fight scene was visually disastrous, the final resolution was unsatisfying, the Fisk/Mary story just got thinner and less believable, the prose is some of Mr. Zdarsky's weakest, and Izzy Libris has become this arc's appendix -- totally vestigial.

    OTOH, the theater scene was deliciously demented, featuring the level of visual and conceptual quality I expect from this title. So I still rated this issue above average (a little). If only the rest of it was anywhere close to that!

    Confusing fight scenes. Hard to follow. And bullseye used to use Everything as a weapon, not just a pistol. The way the clones are disposed of is ridiculous. And all the heroes showing up after the action is over is silly and since when do they interfere with beat cops who just have their orders? Really a come-down.

    This was an incredibly clumsy issue. Elektra somehow loses track of the Bullseye doubles despite watching them as they run away, then just so happens to have a perfect line of sight on both of them as they hide in the rafters, which seems unlikely.

    I was thrown off when Bullseye starts to do a stage act as if he's the Joker, but it is explained that he's cognitively altered himself to act more unpredictable in the hopes that it will give him an edge on Daredevil, so it does end up making sense why he's been acting so out-of-character.

    The end is where things really go off the rails. Daredevil literally comes out of nowhere and clocks Bullseye in the face as the climax. I guess that's technically a spoiler but, in this more

    Okay. Fight sequence hard to follow but great fight sequence.

    I read the issue again. Again Stupidity from Chip Zdarsky.
    Here, Spidey was wrong. I agree Cops didn't do to stop Bullseye. But this stupid pep talk isn't justified either. DD ran from Prison. He is fugitive. Cops had order to arrest DD. That particular cop, who listened to Spidey' stupid pep talk was just following his order. Why he was put like he was wrong in following order? What a Bullshit. From when, following order became wrong? Even the order wasn't wrong. DD is superhero but it doesn't make him above law that law will start bending over his d**k. He ran from Prison. So he must be arrested like other people who ran from Prison. Why DD be treated differentl more

    Bad art, stupid plot, idiotic propaganda. Thank God this run is nearly over, maybe after this Zdarsky can actually focus on a story and not just infecting us with his stupid ideas about how prison turns people violent, because otherwise those people were obviously very decent citizens who got there just by crossing a red light. I'm really not one to wish other people harm, regardless of their stupid and moronic beliefs, but I would wish one of these stupid writers who are so detached from the world to just meet one of these "innocent victims of the system" in an alley, see if their stupid theories would work. These people are what Lenin called "useful idiots" as in people who in their stupidity are sabotaging their own country. They're like more
