Elektra: Black, White & Blood #1

Elektra becomes the latest comic character to get her own black-and-white mini-series featuring separate tales of the comic character, and, like both Red Sonja and Deadpool, hers will have a splash of red.

My favorite of the three tales, mainly for the art by Mark Bagley, "Red Dawn" offers a tale of Elektra left for dead and turned by vampires but still with enough strength to fight back against the urge to become one of them.

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.
