    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence May 18, 2019

    The scene between Daredevil and Spider-Man was the best part of this book. The interactions between the two tend to emphasize Spider-Man's goofiness and Daredevil's annoyance. This issue highlights how highly Daredevil thinks of Spider-Man, and how seriously Spider-Man takes superheroing. Between the intense dialogue and the beautifully intimidating shots of Spider-Man in the shadows, I'm closer than I've ever been to thinking Daredevil is done being a hero. Read Full Review

    Daredevil #5 is the rare mainstream superhero comic that forces itself outside of mainstream conversation. It refuses to play by the rules of the game, removing the gloves and pretense of boxing in order to confront the real costs of violence. The result is not pleasant, but it demands readers' attention and engagement. Read Full Review

    I cannot be more in love with this comic right now. The creative team is just getting so much right on every level. Its only fitting that theyve achieved this level of quality by abandoning fear and exploring the psychology of the character. Even if the finer layers of the writing go over your head, the action will keep you hooked. The art is pound for pound some of the best pages youll see on the stands this month. Read Full Review

    If you haven't been picking up Chip Zdarksy's Daredevil, go back and pick up all the other issues and then this one. It's really dark without going too far, it feels appropriately moody, the art is great and it's beginning to ask some interesting questions about the nature of the character. I give it a high recommendation, go and pick it up. Read Full Review

    It probably didn't need to take five issues to get here, but Daredevil #5 is a brutally entertaining finale for this new volume's first arc. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 20, 2019

    Daredevil #5 was another excellent chapter in Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto run on this series. Ever since Daredevil accidentally killed someone Zdarsky has put the character on a path where there is genuine concern for his choices. That all came to a head with how things went down in the battle against The Owl and two emotional scenes with the Defenders and Spider-Man. Where things ended up created a lot of unknowns for the direction Matt Murdock will go on now. That sense of unknown makes what happens next in Daredevil a must read for fans. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Curtis May 15, 2019

    This issue, like the rest of Zdarksky's run, can be over-obvious. Yet, it's so earnest and understands Daredevil so fundamentally, this issue is nothing short of powerful. Read Full Review
