I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while, and I must say that Elektra #1 did not let me down. It’s a brisk first issue. It almost feels too short. But maybe that’s a sign of a good intro. Elektra finds herself in a Vegas casino incognito. She gets to talking to a barkeeper who she learns is being abused by some shady casino bigwigs. And y’know what Elektra does best? She kills!
The art work here is just straight up lovely. The writing is nice. There’s a good balance of dialogue and action. And when the action comes in, it is really great. Like I said, it feels almost too short, but it is definitely a good setup. I’ll gladly keep reading this one.
