    ELEKTRA may not longer have mind-blowing visuals, but that doesn't prevent it from still being all kinds of exciting. Blackman's script is fast-paced and does a great job balancing thrills and personality. Under Blackman's writing, Elektra's a total boss and a character I just can't get enough of. This chapter's full of energetic action and moments that'll make you recognize just how deadly and impressive Elektra can be. When the dust has finally settled, there's a brief and somewhat emotional moment as the hype is built for the next story. The stage has been set and I'm very anxious to see what'll happen next. Love action and good writing? Do yourself a favor and read ELEKTRA. Read Full Review

    Elektra #7 ends on a good note and does a good job getting the next part of the story started. The writing is pretty good and so is the characterization, though the artwork and some parts of the writing leave a lot to be desired. I look forward to where ever the comic goes from here.

    The real highlight of this issue is the Elektra/Lady Bullseye fight, its tone set by Sanchezs hauntingly beautiful opening triptych. Lady Bullseyes gaseous form loops and curls in full, billowing lines, detailed by fine pencil strokes and heavy splatter. Blackmans timeless, almost otherworldly aesthetic for this title is further developed in Elektras jaunt across New Orleans. The Mardi Gras that Elektra encounters is far tamer affair than it has been in recent decades, a decidedly more conservative event with traditional dress and costumes. It appears to be set in another time altogether, raising intriguing questions about when this story takes place, and giving nothing away. This lingering sense of mystery continues to serve Elektra well, making for another enjoyable and visually engaging issue. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Lindsey Morris Nov 3, 2014

    Perhaps this mini-story was meant to be a short and sweet beat-em-up style break after the conclusion of the first "Bloodlines" arc. A change of pace. A different perspective. Looking at it from that angle, it works a little better. Looking at it as a smaller part of the whole, however, it just doesn't fit in. Here's to hoping that the next issue will regain its footing and employ more of the things that have been making the series a success since Issue #1. Read Full Review
