Elektra has been many things - a pawn, a pariah, and even a provocateur. But through it all, she has been one thing above all others: the most dangerous human being in the Marvel Universe! Everything that has happened in her long and storied life has been leading to this: the 100th issue bearing her name, and the starting point of what is to come!

    Comic Watch - Clint Theron Apr 13, 2022

    Whenever Marvel celebrates a major milestone for a superhero comic book, like a 100th issue, I expect greatness. And greatness is what we get here, particularly in Ann Nocenti's story. Elektra's relationship with Typhoid Mary is one of her most compelling, and what we didn't get in the mainDaredevil title is explored here. I strongly recommend this special for fans of Elektra, Daredevil, Typhoid Mary, or the recent Devil's Reign storyline. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 11, 2022

    All told, this is a good milestone issue, although it feels a bit thin. Another conventional superhero story not in a cartoonist style would improve the overall feel--it's a bit heavy on Sunday morning comic strips--but it's an entertaining read all the same. Elektra #100 opens with an impactful story by a comics legend, making this a can't be missed read for longtime fans. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Apr 11, 2022

    Elektra #100 is a lovely celebration of a wonderful character. The anthology perhaps isnt as big as I would have liked it to have been, as there is definitely potential for more stories inside it. But the ones that made it in help showcase the depth that is within the assassin-turned hero. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 13, 2022

    In the shadows of the Kingpin's fall, Typhoid Mary and Elektra fight, and it's a really good issue for both characters, but not quite buoyant enough for the price tag. Read Full Review

    A standard fare for what has become a tradition in landmark issues that add nothing to canon or character. Read Full Review

    Elektra #100 just doesn't have a lot of gravitas to it when all is said and done, presenting some light and breezy stories that aren't able to really live up to the idea of this big anniversary issue. Read Full Review

    I was really looking forward to this as I am a huge daredevil and Elektra fan. For me the first story was wonderful! The fact that it's written by Ann nocenti is super exciting. I loved the writing in the first story I was really drawn into it and enjoyed every panel for me it's a 9.5/10. The second story is fun and I really enjoyed the end 8/10. The comic strip "stories" at the end made me laugh a bit but they aren't my thing I could do without them but at least they are short.

    Nocenti’s story makes up the bulk of this issue and adds an interesting dimension to Mary and Fisk’s relationship but the art was mediocre and the overall story was just ok. The dance story was pointless. The lighter stories at the end were the highlights of this issue, this would be a worthy addition to a daredevil fan’s collection just for those stories.

    I thought the main story was OK. The second story was short but decent and the rest was just comedy bits. Not worth the 5 bucks, especially because the main story is more of a typhoid story than elektra.

    The target audience here consists solely of completionists who are committed to getting every Elektra and/or Ann Nocenti comic ever published.

    A strip: Words, art, and concept are all pretty decent, but it's a Typhoid Mary story, not an Elektra story. It's cute the way the author nods 2 or 3 times at current continuity before launching into a psychological study of her personal, not-really-in-continuity Mary variant.

    B strip: A well-executed example of the achingly clichéd "Daredevil and Elektra fight and it's sensual" scene. Yawn.

    Sunday funnies backups: Perfectly cromulent gag strips that would be welcome in a good Elektra anthology. They haven't a prayer of elevating this one.

    This was very average. That's all I got to say.

    The main story seems to take place around the same time frame as Devil's Reign, but Elekra and Typhoid Mary are in jarringly different costumes for some reason. It seems like the artist was adamant to draw them in older costumes but editors insisted on the story being current or something, I'm not sure, but the result is a sloppy mess.

    The backup story was fine, nothing damning, nothing special. One of the comic strips at the end was good, the others weren't.

    Overall, kind of a sad presentation of Elekra's 100th issue.
