Daredevil. Elektra. Once upon a time they were star-crossed lovers, but then fate took a tragic twist leading them down wildly separate paths. He became Hell's Kitchen's blind seeker of justice while she became a servant to the Hand and their deadliest ninja assassin. But What If...events occurred differently? What If DD was inducted into their evil order in her place? WHAT IF DAREDEVIL DIED AND WAS RESURRECTED BY THE HAND? If that question provides you a gnat's whisker of intrigue, then you definitely won't want to miss this What If special based on the seminal early 80s Daredevil run by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson! By Karl Bollers (WOLVERINE: HUNGER) and Rafael Kayanan (Conan The Barbarian). Plus a “SAY WHAT?” comedy strip by Mike Gallagher (Mad Magazine) and Dave Manak (Spy Vs. Spy). 48 PGS./

    It's obvious that this story is the work of people with a real enthusiasm for the character, and there are little touches here and there that show that the creators have really done their homework (I love the reappearance of Foggy's ridiculous Moose hat from his college days, as seen in Miller's original story). It's also nice to see some amusing cartoony extras in the closing pages that show that the creators aren't above poking fun at their own work, and a certain amount of humour in the story itself (I enjoyed Elektra's comment about ninjas and the 1980s). Ultimately, though, this issue can't escape the feeling of being a pretty inconsequential and not particularly logical What If? tale, albeit one that provides some decent action scenes and some above-average artwork.

    Fans of Daredevil should enjoy "What If? Daredevil vs. Elektra" #1 as it provides a stark contrast to what actually happened and throws in a lot of Easter eggs for the knowledgeable reader. It also happens to be a pretty good read. Read Full Review
