Adventures in old bargain bin comics continues…

Mourning becomes Ele(k)tra.

As does anger, angst and some crazy ninja skillz.

The material for this book was culled from Frank Miller’s entertaining Daredevil run. It was then edited into a chronological account of Elektra’s origin story starting when she first met Matt Murdock back in college.

Talking about super-hero abilities as a way to pick up women? Huh. That’s genius…

Things go swimmingly until a tragedy forces Elektra to leave school and focus h

I read this in comic form when it came out - yup, I'm that old - and thought it groundbreaking at the time, creating a cohesive and interesting backstory for a hero who have seemed a little bit dull up till then. For all her uberviolence, I love Elektra.

I've never really gotten into Daredevil that much (not sure why not), but this is fantastic: gritty, visceral, dark, nuanced. Miller and Jansen perfectly set the tone and run the mood through every page.

In my opinion the best Daredevil storyline of the series. Frank Miller's art is superb and the plot is excellent. Highly recommended

A continuación tenéis algunos detalles de mi opinión sobre la 'Saga de Elektra'. El resto, junto a la reseña de 'El hombre sin miedo', en El Planeta de mis Nimios

'En esta saga Miller nos presenta a Elektra, desde que conoce a Matt Murdock en la universidad hasta cuando se reencuentran años después. Descubrimos varias historias que, juntas, nos sirven para conocer por una parte a Elektra (personaje muy atractivo por sí mismo) y por otra a Murdock/Daredevil.'

'Este conjunto de historias son muy imp

Pretty good. I picked this up after reading Miller's Daredevil run with art by David Mazzucchelli, and while Miller's a celebrated comics artist in his own right, he suffers by comparison to his Year One collaborator. Really interesting to watch Miller working out some of the ideas he'd go on to use in that book and Dark Knight Returns, though.

Brilliant stuff, loads of hints of the coming greatness of Miller.
And Elektra, one of the best female characters ever produced. So deadly, so cool.
Brilliant stuff.

Don't know why no one talks about this one more. You've got The Hand, Bullseye, and ninjas all over the damn place. Stone may be the coolest guy of all time.
