Elektra: Black, White & Blood #2

Elektra: Black, White & Blood #2 offers three more tales of Marvel's most famous assassin in white, black, and plenty of red. While there is no break-out tale in the issue, we do get three solid stories featuring the character in different locales.

"Cut and Run" finds Elektra in Madripoor where Patch puts the assassin onto Joon, a woman of the evening who has fallen in with a dangerous assassin who isn't too keen on her aborting what he believes to be his unborn child. 

In "Verité" a couple of New York Police Detectives work to try to solve the murder of a witness against the Kingpin who was killed so quickly that the murder wasn't caught on camera (funny, I didn't know Elektra was a speedster?). And in "Yokai," set in Japan, Elektra fights a legendary creature who has stolen a small child.
