    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 15, 2009

    This issue carries itself more completely than "Dark Reign: The List " Avengers" as all of the content of this issue is Daredevil related. With twenty-six pages of story, seven pages of preview from "Daredevil" #501, and three pages of sketch material, "Dark Reign: The List " Daredevil" is well-conceived and brilliantly executed, encouraging readers of the other "The List" titles to come back and read the adventures of "Daredevil" on a regular basis. Osborn earns the fury of Daredevil, and I hope we get to see that fury in action very soon. Read Full Review

    If you're following The List event and don't read Daredevil monthly, you might be a bit lost on this one. But Dark Reign: The List - Daredevil is a good, solid read for those who've been following the core series, and if nothing else assures us that the book's still in good hands and has some spectacular places to go moving forward.

    Conversely, more casual readers may feel a little cheated by a "stand-alone" issue that sets up many different plot points without resolving many of them. Then again, Daredevil has consistently been one of Marvel's strongest titles for many years now, so perhaps it wouldn't hurt to lure followers of "Dark Reign" into reading a superhero book that really isn't afraid to approach the genre in a truly mature, sophisticated--and, yes, "dark"--manner.

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Sep 17, 2009

    Good premise, solid start, but weak finish. Fails to sell people on the new status quo and poor choice of artist for the style of this character made an uneven book that just petered out in the end. Preview for next issue of Daredevil more than makes up for it though. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Sep 20, 2009

    Tan is a bad choice for this series. His work is better suited to clear-cut and brooding super heroes, not crime detective tragedy like Daredevil. Although his work was not bad, he lacks the skill to capture Daredevils kinetic moves. When Daredevil dodges an attack from Bullseye, it doesnt feel like its this superbly trained acrobat beating the odds. It feels like Cable ducking an explosion without any grace. Read Full Review
