Wilson Fisk's hubris as mayor of New York has cast the city in the waiting arms of a cadre of dangerous and deadly super villains! Worse still, Fisk's vendetta against the heroes who have stood against him for so long has left the city defenseless. You may think you've heard a tale like this before, but there will be no last minute bargains struck between Fisk and the heroes, no truce to stop the fighting and no mutual parting of the ways. Just blood, sweat and tears! Trust us, True Believer, you have NO IDEA what's coming - or the effect it will have on the Marvel Universe!

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 6, 2022

    Devil's Reign #6 is a great ending. While I wish it was a bit more self-contained, it's set up of what's to come doesn't quite make you feel like you absolutely need to continue. With one more follow up issue to come, the event is one of the best Marvel has recently released keeping things compact, focused, and delivering actual emotional punches. While in the end the good guys win and the future seems brighter, it's also a reminder that even in victory it doesn't mean justice will completely prevail. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 6, 2022

    Ultimately your enjoyment of this issue will depend on how much you've enjoyed the ride to get here. The series always had a slightly "been there done that" feel since it follows a similar premise to Civil War, i.e. illegal superheroes. Devil's Reign never quite feels like a universe-changing event, though, with lower stakes and a general feel as a chapter in Zdarsky and Checchetto's excellent Daredevil run. For that reason, this series ends on a note that is incredible if you've liked their run but leaves you wanting if you're looking for more. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Apr 7, 2022

    The results of the title match will divide fans on how a story like this should close out, and things were a tad too tidy by the turn of the last page; however, it was a fun ride to get there. Despite Marco Checchetto's gorgeous artwork all throughout this 6-issue run, we won't be calling Devil's Reign the book that erased the bad taste Civil War II left in fan's mouths like I once hoped, but it is one that will allow fans to keep saying Daredevil always has the best written stories in Marvel.

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura May 25, 2022

    Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto are continuing their Daredevil run as a relaunch, while the new Thunderbolts are set to feature in their own series soon, and it seems Luke Cage: Mayor for Hire is a development that might get its own spinoff as well. (One presumably distinct from the abruptly canceled Luke Cage: City of Fire.) If any of those are of interest to you, or if you want a more satisfying conclusion to this storyline, then you probably want to check this out. But if $5.99 is more than you're willing to pay for what are essentially teasers for future titles, you won't miss too much from skipping out. Read Full Review
