    A great first issue that felt good as a jumping-on point for me. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Theron Couch Sep 13, 2023

    The most recent Daredevil run received a lot of praise and could be a tough act to follow as a result. There might also be reader trepidation over whether the new run will continue where the previous left off or try for an immediate reset. None of that need be a concern. Daredevil #1 is a strong first issue that also feels like a natural extension of what came before. Read Full Review

    Kuder delivers beautifully detailed imagery throughout the issue. The art is lively and captures the gritty tone of the story and the city. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Sep 13, 2023

    Daredevil #1 is a solid start to Saladin Ahmed's run on the title as Matt Murdock's quiet life after hell suddenly takes a demonic turn. Matt's resurrection question is intriguing (almost too much so), and that looks great. If Ahmed can pay off the resurrection question quickly and satisfactorily, this series will be off to a great start. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 13, 2023

    I'm all in on Daredevil's new direction. The character feels fresh, but his new role as a priest suits the legacy of the character. Throw in a supernatural threat, and Daredevil is shaping up to be an exciting new era to add to the legacy of epic runs. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Sep 13, 2023

    It is oddly fitting to see the Man Without Fear as a Man of the Cloth. I doubt this new status quo will stick for long, but this is an engaging first issue. The art is somewhat weak at points, but there is far more good than bad in this new Daredevil. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Christopher Chiu-Tabet Sep 14, 2023

    All in all, this is a solid start to what will likely be another absorbing “Daredevil” run, and it's great that the emphasis on Matt's faith isn't going away after Zdarsky and Checchetto's run (not that I expected it to though, seeing as Ahmed is the series' first Muslim writer.) Welcome back Matt! Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Connor Casey Sep 13, 2023

    Ahmed manages to make this feel like a bona fide Daredevil story. He may have swapped legal proceedings for sheltering orphans, but he still nails Murdock's internal struggle between his moral code and his ceaseless desire to combat evil. Read Full Review

    Ahmed gives fans many questions to consider as Daredevil #1 opens but it wasn't really enough. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Sep 13, 2023

    Daredevil #1 feels reserved in many ways. It's a slow start overall that has interesting concepts but not an interesting pitch of those concepts. It feels rather safe in some ways and a little bit of a throwback in others. After the wild, emotional driven ride, that was the previous volume, this one is a definite change in pace.

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Sep 18, 2023

    This book was a lot more fun than I expected it to be, effectively resetting players into another crusade, or is that fools errand? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 13, 2023

    Daredevil #1 is a good start for this new era for the Man Without Fear that Saladin Ahmed and Aaron Kuder are beginning. Their was a respect shown for what their predecessors established as they hit the ground running for what comes next for Matt Murdock. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 20, 2023

    At $7, its oddness isn't quite enough to sell me on the new chapter of Matt Murdock's life. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Sep 20, 2023

    Daredevil #1 has solid character design and is visually attractive. Elektra looks great in her Daredevil outfit, and the coloring is excellent. Despite some layout design concerns, this book has good art and solid writing. Read Full Review
