    With strong writing and fantastic artwork, Elektra #3 is worth every cent. Read Full Review

    Interesting parallel structure and artwork create a variety of feelings in readers, but don't do much to create a story to go forward. Read Full Review

    Elektra #3 did not waste anytime in moving the story in Murderworld forward. By doing so Matt Owens is able to highlight what makes Elektra such a kick ass character no matter the situation. With the dialogue being kept at a minimum Owens was able to give Juann Cabal more than enough space for his artistic abilities to showcae Elektra's abilities and the dangers of Murderworld.

    What's interesting here is that Elektra is really trying to be more heroic than she's been in the last few years. But she's failing on a spectacular level, and when she fails, Elektra is much more compelling. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin May 1, 2017

    So, basically, in good conscience, I really can't recommend buying Elektra #3. That first issue held some promise, but three issues in and it's time to start asking for a refund. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 8, 2017

    Round One goes to our heroine, but it's obviously a rigged game. Arcade controls Murderworld and can change the stakes at any time. Putting Elektra back on the defensive, next issue she'll have to focus back on saving a life and not just killing everything that moves. For fans. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - SHAY REVOLVER Apr 27, 2017

    The whole point of this arc seems to be rooted in making Elektra fight for other people but, not to save them, she is not in control of her body or actions and is trapped in a storyline that makes her a slave to others, under the thumb of her male enslaver and at the mercy of a mob who takes delight in using her body as entertainment. It's lazy storytelling and it's not even interesting or complex enough to be an actual story. To answer the question posed by Arcade early on in this issue, NO! I am not entertained.

    Fun Book. Great art. Elektra kicking ass.

    Agree witht positive in IGN - Blair Marnell's blurb. But it wasn't THAT interesting this time, what with just an inane Murder Level challenge to a generic DD team up of the past to weakly contribute to her character development. Nice enough art.

    Elektra cruises through a very standard Murderworld fight and a showdown with Screwball is pending. The most damning thing I can say about Matt Owens' script here is that its empty platitudes nearly turned me against Juann Cabal's splendid art. He deserves to sink his teeth into a deeper, meatier Elektra story. His potentially-memorable art is wasted on a shallow miniseries that's doomed to instant forgettability.

    I'm not sure how much worse they could make this book. The art isn't bad, so there's that. I think Marvel has decided that they are missing out on all the greatness of the Burnside sewage that DC is producing with Batgirl lately. Elektra of Burnside!
