    If you have never read an Elektra book like me, then I'm sure you'll like this. Its a great starting point for blossoming Elektra fans. At the end of the book, they show you a group of characters we are sure to see on Elektra's journey. Read Full Review

    Elektra #5 delivers a very good end to "Always Bet On Red" while also setting the stage for what comes next for Elektra Natchios. Though I wish we could see more adventures with Elektra in Las Vegas it is clear that she is on to bigger things now. What that is and how it ties into the rest of Marvel's street-level comics will be exciting to see play out. Read Full Review

    In the end, if you want some fun summer reading, this is a great choice. For those of you who adore each of the Murderworlds as much as Arcade hopes, this is a must read.Three Stars! Read Full Review

    I guess this was a satisfying ending but a pretty disappointing series overall. It’s not as good as Elektra: Assassin or Elektra Lives Again by Frank Miller, but it is an easier and lighter read. It’s also a lighter read than Bendis’ Elektra series, which is around 48 pages per issue and a lot more grittier. If you are interested in reading Elektra I suggest reading the 11-issue 2014 series

    Elektra beats Arcade. Was there ever any doubt? It's not a disappointing issue, but this series as a whole is tremendously irrelevant. It alters Elektra's character not one bit, and though Arcade bows out with a few hints about a bigger plot affecting the "Daredevil family," there's a certain je ne sais quoi screaming that nobody except Matt Owens cares about this foreshadowing. Jaunn Cabal's art closes out the run with nearly as much style as it had at the start, but it's been a big waste of talent and opportunity. Mr. Owens *could* have told a meaningful and interesting story and he had the artistic backing to make it truly epic. Instead we got two issues' worth of Arcade fighting stretched into five issues and a story that even the most more

    Its a pretty underwhelming series for Elektra. If you're looking for something revolutionary and groundbreaking like Blackman and Del Mundo's run, you should probably keep looking.
