Elektra Natchios is the greatest assassin in the Marvel Universe - but having recently taken up the mantle of DAREDEVIL, she's taken a vow to never take a life again. But that vow is about to be put to the ultimate test, as KRAVEN THE HUNTER has her dead in his sights...and, unlike Elektra, he has no reservations about killing. If anything, he likes it when his prey struggles. At least, he thinks he does.

    De Latorre has a great visual eye and that comes through with some awesome character shots and blistering action. I love the way the character moves in the fight scenes and am impressed with the detail and visual quality of the art. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 10, 2022

    Framing the contrast is really nice. But it's only going to go so far. The opening issue firmly established Elektra's inner conflict. Hear that inner conflict is expanded on. Zdarsky and Company are doing a good job of bringing it all to the page in a way that seems simple enough to almost achieve a kind of flawlessness. Without a greater scope in issues to come, the story might have some difficulty maintaining a sense of direction moving forward, but Zdarsky has done a good job of keeping the action moving so far.

    Bits and PiecesDaredevil: Woman Without Fear #2 is another strong example of simple-yet-effective storytelling. Zdarsky and the art team expertly intermingle small yet powerful emotional moments with rough and tumble hand-to-hand action scenes for brisk and entertaining read. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 2, 2022

    Daredevil: Woman Without Fear #2 is a tie-in but it's a comic that can stand on its own. It feels like the event is almost secondary as Elektra reflects on her life. It's a hell of an issue for a fantastic miniseries that has me begging for more. Even if you're not reading Devil's Reign, which you should, this is well worth picking up on its own.

    Comic Watch - Clint Theron Feb 2, 2022

    While new villain Aka hasn't really caught my eye as of yet, I'm excited to see more of Elektra's history with this criminal. And until we get that final confrontation, there's still plenty more Kraven the Hunter to go around. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Evan Valentine Feb 2, 2022

    Zdarsky clearly has a good understanding of Elektra as a character, taking readers into her mind as she struggles with her new role, while throwing in a few twists that some might not expect coming from a former assassin who can be shrouded in secrecy. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 9, 2022

    The next issue should offer more of the pair going at it while Elektra's old mentor enjoys the show. And now Elektra has the Thunderbolts to worry about as well. The longer tale, should she survive, we see teased as the possibility of Elektra and Daredevil teaming up to take out out the Hand. To get there, however, first she must survive Kraven and Devil's Reign. Read Full Review
