Elektra: Black, White & Blood #3

Three more tales of Elektra through the years, all presented in black, white, and red, are collected here. My favorite from Elektra: Black, White & Blood #3 is "Weapons of Choice" which sees Elektra, when still working as an assassin for the Hand, attack the Red Room whose students at the time included Natasha Romanov. This is a thread that I'd like to see pulled on and a rematch of the pair, at some point, on more even terms.

In a bit of a flashback to her past, "Split" catches up to pre-assassin Elektra breaking out of the asylum she'd been locked away in with the help of Typhoid Mary. And in "With a Passion" Elektra's love/hate relationship with Daredevil is examined as are Matt Murdock's failed attempts to save the woman he loves.
