    Dark Reign: Elektra #3 is another great issue in a mini-series that, so far, has had nothing but great issues. Why did I not then give the issue a perfect 5 bullets out of 5? The ads for the issue, and the cover of the issue both try to push the big face-off of Elektra versus Bullseye, something I have really been looking forward to (as everyone else has). But surprise, surprise, as comics have been doing for years, the vaunted villain on the cover only shows up briefly and won't make any real showing until next issue. Now, that's not to say it makes the issue itself any worse, simply that it's a really old and dirty trick that Marvel should have grown past using decades ago. Nonetheless, a great issue with exceptional work by all the talent involved. Read Full Review

    It appears Elektra in her bra and panties wont be enough to bolster sales so the merry mutant will have to show up. Marvel cant have Elektra run around nude so theyll have to give us the next best thing, adamantium claws! Well, at least theyll look good as Manns pencils remain excellent and Bermejos covers continue to deliver, I want that shot as a poster for my wall! excellence as well. A little more story momentum would help though, along with a Daredevil cameo instead of a Wolverine one. But then again, even if Daredevil showed up, itd be the same thing weve seen before all over again anyway. Read Full Review
