    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jul 11, 2022

    Daredevil #1 is a stunning start. It tries to close the door on Daredevils time in Hells Kitchen by having one last adventure in it. Zdarsky knows all of these characters completely at this stage, yet still tries to bring out new aspects to their personalities. From the start, it is evident that Murdock and Elektra come into this book with tortured souls and troubled minds. The art is gorgeous and it is so exciting to see this creative team back again.

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Jul 12, 2022

    After so many years of tortured soul-searching, you'd be forgiven for thinking it might be time for Matt Murdock to catch a break. No such luck is to be had, though. In the hands of master creators like Zdarsky, Checchetto, Wilson, and Cowles, ol' horn head looks to be in for the fight of his life - and that's a good thing. What's old is new again in the best way possible as Chip Zdarsky continues defining Daredevil for the next generation. Read Full Review

    GWW - Justin Vader Jul 11, 2022

    If this issue is any indication, this run of Daredevil is going to be a great close for this version of Murdock's adventures. The writers set up a great plot, and used every single one of this issues 34 pages effectively. Maybe you are a time honored fan of Daredevil or maybe this is the first comic book you have ever read. Either way, I highly recommend that you give Daredevil a read. It has me hooked, and I am looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Jul 11, 2022

    Daredevil #1 hits heavy as you're seeing Matt Murdock go through some familiar pain. Chip and Marco are continuing their trailblazing run on Daredevil, but steel yourself as I think this will live up to the phrase, "the road to hell is paved with good intentions." Buckle up and keep your head on a swivel, as it will be a hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 15, 2022

    Daredevil #1 is a strong continuation of where Devil's Reign left the franchise. Chip Zdarsky, Marco Checchetto, Rafael De Latorre, and Matt Wilson do not miss a beat with where they take Matt Mudock and Elektra Natchios characters as both characters operate as Daredevil and co-leads of The Fist. This first issue accomplishes a lot in setting up several storylines for the reader to be invested in alongside the Daredevils main mission of taking down The Hand. This is definitely a can't miss comic book for Daredevil fans. Read Full Review

    An interesting new direction. Is it better the Devil you know, or is the Devil always in the detail? Only time, and Chip Zdarsky, can tell. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Zach B. Jul 15, 2022

    I don't want Zdarsky's Daredevil run to end--in part because I don't want to see either of our two little devils die in the other's arms ;( Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tony Thornley Jul 19, 2022

    The Man Without Fear returns in the latest volume of his adventures. It's a great launch, but also includes a final twist that could make or break the overall story depending on how it goes in the end. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 13, 2022

    Daredevil #1 is solid as expected. The comic does a great job of setting up the next adventure while wrapping up what has come before. It acts as a decent spot for new readers to hop on and should make longtime readers happy. Overall, things are looking very intriguing for the Daredevils and this series continues to be one to not miss. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Jul 13, 2022

    Daredevil #1 (2022) hits the ground running as Matt Murdock ties up loose ends before saying goodbye to NYC for good. The art is jaw-dropping, and Zdarsky packs every scene with drama and emotion. However, there are a lot of settings to keep straight, some without any apparent connection to the main plot, so your enjoyment may be mixed with confusion. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Laurence Almalvez Oct 8, 2022

    Right off the bat, Zdarsky's issue tortures our protagonist. At times the story feels a little too contrived, characters are revealed not to be who they say they are, characters have faked their deaths, and Purple Children have caused people to forget Matt Murdock was Daredevil's secret identity. This book is advertised as a jumping on point for new readers, although it's safe to say that some may find a few of these continuity hurdles tough to clear. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Jul 11, 2022

    Why not have one or two day in the life style issues where we get to see Matt coping with the aftermath of Devils Reign out of costume, just living his life as Matt Murdock and pondering what hes going to do next before dropping us into another 15-part epic? Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 20, 2022

    The rest of the issue, including Daredevil being interviewed by someone else in the near (far?) future and Elektra kicking Stick‘s ass for fun, sets up the challenges of taking the devil out of Hell's Kitchen. Oh, and also an old acquaintance of Matt's appears with bizarre unexplained powers and a knowledge of his secret, so, um. yeah, there's that too. Read Full Review
