    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jan 9, 2019

    Overall MacKay does an outstanding job of crafting a detailed psychological profile of Matt Murdock and Daredevil. He takes the time to present us with ideas, concepts, and relationships that are absolutely elevated the moment you put the issue down and start to actually think on what you just read and saw. MacKay leaves you with ideas that take root and start to blossom the moment you begin to dissect and analyze not just their meaning but their relationship to Daredevil as a character. I absolutely think he has yet again knocked the ball out of the park and given us a fantastic commentary on the internal struggles of superheroes. Im excited for issue #3 and to continue seeing what MacKay delivers with this absolute gem of a series. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Will Sweval Jan 14, 2019

    While still a great issue this follow-up definitely has a few hiccups. It's always great to see DD's fairly limited supporting cast show up, as most of his acquaintances are heroes in their own right too big to be part of another's ensemble. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Brandon Masters Jan 11, 2019

    Still reflecting on a lifetime of regrets and pain, Man Without Fear leaves reader wondering if Matt can even recover from this life, or if this book is paving the way for a legacy character to take the role. Either way, the rest of this series should be fascinating. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Jan 10, 2019

    I mentioned last time that this is a regular part of the Daredevil ebb and flow. The journey from low point to fighting shape is a normal hero troupe but it is always the perfect time for a reflection on the core of the character. While long time readers can tire of this, I'm glad newer comic nerds inspired by the Netflix show get to experience it here. The highlight of this rendition is the same as last issue in the horrifying embodiment of Daredevil's fear. The low point is the artist's decision (bizarrely unlike the last issue) to make Foggy look exactly like the Netflix show's character. Creative choices aside, though, I enjoy taking the trip through this super hero journey's trough. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Danilo To Jan 9, 2019

    This issue is good enough to pass some time but does make it hard for the readers to invest themselves in buying this book every month. Though slow-paced, MacKay does an excellent job diving inside Murdock's mind and telling the not so compelling story. Read Full Review

    This book has me optimistic about the future of Daredevil, and hopefully we see more pieces fall into place for the future soon. Read Full Review

    I thought this was a really good issue. The only problem with this type of book is that it needs to have killer art to go with the story being told, I think. To really be able to emphasize the struggle the protagonist is going through. And this issue doesn't have it, at least not for the quiet moments that make up the majority of the issue! When the creepy Bone-Daredevil shows up, it starts to look better. A lot of this issue focuses on Kirsten, who was basically absent from the last 4 years of Daredevil, aside from one arc. While it's nice to finally put a cap on that lingering thread, it didn't really seem all that necessary. What's more interesting is how Matt struggles with his crippled body. We got that really great final moment at the more

    I actually prefer the character development that came before the fever dreams.
