    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Jul 29, 2019

    This comic is great because it goes against convention for what you would expect in a superhero comic. There's no action scenes and very little violence, but yet the information presented here make us yearn for the next issue. It's a simple tale of the governor and the mayor on a friendly hunting trip and Matt Murdock being invited to dinner. But it's the undercurrents that keep our interest. We learn the dirt behind this average "family" and wonder if Matt will even be allowed to leave this home, especially with one of the tough family members becoming angrier at Matt's accusations. Awesome issue, I can't wait for the next one! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Brandon Masters Jul 24, 2019

    Action fans may feel left a little cold, but Daredevil fans are being delivered some of the best stories the character has ever had. Knowing Zdarsky, Matt will wear the mask again. However, its going to be a bit longer before Daredevil once more swings over the streets of New York. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Jul 17, 2019

    A tense moment for the Man without Fear at the dinner table of one of Hell's Kitchen's notorious mafia families. Wilson Fisk makes a play for the bigger crime. The story progresses the overall arc. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Jul 22, 2019

    From the strong sense of class politics that comes across to the sense of history that's built up through a recollection of past events, Hell's Kitchen and its way of doing things comes across as an ever-present force in the story being told even as it's being told within the confines of domesticity. The neighborhood has established its own order that has become a way of life for so many. It's presented as easier to go along with, as any attempt to escape will see the city find a way to pull you back in. Read Full Review

    This relaunch continues to interrogate all of the underlying issues that have made Daredevil a resonant character for decades, and it is only getting better. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Adrian Care Jul 25, 2019

    Daredevil #8 opens with charm and becomes ultimately engaging as the ideas discussed take center stage. While the last few pages don't maintain that consistency, the story arc and this issue itself does a great job of picking up were previous arcs have left off while still allowing the reader to explore the character of Matt Murdock up close, personal, and through a different set of shades.

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Jul 20, 2019

    One thing I'll mention with no context to get you to read the comic: Murdock knocks the leg out from a chair and causes an old woman to fall and break her hip. That is all. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jul 17, 2019

    This was a bit of a down issue that stalls the overall story as it sets up things to come. I am still hyped on this series, but this was my least favorite issue so far. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Antonio Pedro Jul 20, 2019

    In the end, if you haven't been keeping up with Zdarksy's Daredevil, this isn't a great place to start. But if you're on the fence about whether to continue or not, I'd say to do it, just out of curiosity for where it's going. While the story isn't quite as engaging and the art not as good as previous issues, it did just enough to pique my interest. I recommend it, but with the caveat that I expect it to either pay off or develop more of what it's introducing. Read Full Review
