    The StoriesThe highlight of Elektra: Black, White & Blood #1 is the story titled Not the Devil (written and drawn by Leonardo Romero) which, after a brief opening, turns into one long John Wick-style action tale, as Elektra takes out as many of Kingpins men as she can, wielding a Katana and her trademarks sais as the thugs speed down the road. Theres no setup given for her vendetta, and it doesnt really matter, because watching Elektra wipe the thugs out with Jason Voorhees-style efficiency and brutality is amazing. Read Full Review

    If we're lucky, Marvel will keep printing these series, as Elektra: Black, White & Blood will make you want more. Comics is a visual medium, and once again this series shows off the artistry of storytelling from three greats. It also supplies meaningful takes on the character, which is particularly great since historically she's been rather one-note. Read Full Review

    I guess you could say that overall I liked this issue, but didn't love it. Red suits Elektra though, no denying that. Read Full Review

    A fun read, but it serves more to whet the readers appetite for Elektra's undoubtedly major role in Devil's Reign. Read Full Review

    Elektra: Black, White & Blood #1 gives readers three short stories that highlight why Elektra is considered one of the deadliest killers in all of Marvel-dom. While each story style is different (writing and art), there isn't a lemon in the bunch. That said, it would have served the anthology better if each short paid more attention to saying something new and meaningful about the character. Read Full Review

    In “Not the Devil” Elektra hunts down and kills minions of the Kingpin from the shadows but momentarily hesitates after hearing the pleas of a young girl. And in the final story,“The Crimson Path” offers a more metaphysical tale of Elektra and her fight against evil and monsters which leave their mark on her. Read Full Review

    There were more misses than hits in this debut issue, but for Elektra fans, that first story is still very much worth checking out. Read Full Review
