    Blue Raven Comics - Kassim Mirza Feb 9, 2013

    Daredevil: End of Days is not for those who are trying to jump into a causal read. The title is really designed for Daredevil fans and, in my opinion, that's what makes it truly great. So, if you've been keeping up with this title, and you find yourself frustrated by the lack of answers and plot you've been getting, pick up Daredevil: End of Days #5"I wish more creators put as much effort into their books as this team has.

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Feb 6, 2013

    This is why comic fans buy comics - for great stories and art. Normally I don't put a lot of stock in future stories. Bendis and Mack have laid out a great mystery that pulls you in month after month. Each moment it appears that Ben Urich is about to uncover the answer to the mystery, more surprises pop up. The art and color here creates the perfect vibe for the story. This will be one you'll find yourself reading again and being able to enjoy it for what it is. You don't have to worry about the continuity of any of the characters involved. You get to just sit back and enjoy the show. The only bad thing about this series is there's only three more issues to go. Read Full Review

    The Pop Cultist - Josh Elliott Feb 6, 2013

    Issue #5 builds on all the elements that make this dark, haunting comic so great. The writing is nuanced and superbly positioned from Ben Urich's perspective, and the art is spot-on for the mature tone of the story. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Feb 6, 2013

    Look, I'm running out of ways to praise the art in this thing. Klaus Janson and Bill Sienkiewicz are giving us a master class in comic book art with each and every issue. The storytelling is brilliant. There are less trademark Bendis double-page paneled spreads and the book is stronger for it. And folks, you can die happy once you see the two painted pages that Sienkiewicz delivers here. This comic book is truly a work of art; a thing of beauty. I never thought Marvel could kill off one of my favorite characters and I'd love it so very, very much. More Daredevil: End of Days, please. Read Full Review

    This is a series that I really can not recommend highly enough. Pick up all five issues that have been released so far, read them in one sitting, and I can guarantee you will be hooked. Reading this series with a nice mug of black coffee is absolute perfection. Bring on #6 next month. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson Feb 11, 2013

    The art is in interesting brew of images. Klaus Janson handles the pencils, while Bill Sienkiewicz does the full color painted splash pages. Both artists ping pong off each other well. Janson tells the lion’s share of the story with his inspired noir style. The saturated rain, the heavy feeling of melancholy, it all works beneath the foundation of masterfully well done human forms and action scenes. It’s beautiful work for a story that never ceases to gripping and exciting. Read Full Review

    Daredevil End of Days has been getting better with every issue. The mystery is fascinating, the art is wonderful and perfectly suited to the script, and the cliff-hanger at the end of this issue is a great twist. The only bad thing that I associate with this series is the fact that I have to wait another month until I read the next issue! This comic should be on your radar, after all, it's not often that you're going to see Marvel or DC kill off one of your favourite characters in such a compelling and enjoyable (maybe that didn't come out right…) way.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Feb 10, 2013

    This issue is yet another quality entry in this limited series. With a great script, some good dialogue and an interesting mystery at the heart of it all, it is hard not to recommend this to all Daredevil fans. The art certainly does help a lot too. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Feb 7, 2013

    I'm hoping that "Daredevil: End of Days" #5 really is the turning point that it feels like it's promising. I've enjoyed the series up until now, but with three issues left it could also use a slight kick in the pants to keep the reader's attention. If this is indeed the start of the page picking up a bit, I won't say no to that. For now, it's a promising chapter in a good mini-series. Read Full Review
