    One thought on “Elektra, Volume 1: Bloodlines”

    1. Shallow Comics buddy read this week is RED. Because we're lazy, and it's fairly easy to find a superhero whose got some sort of red on 'emmewhere.If you like all that woo-woo-spiritual-fucknut-ninja shit, then maybe this will be a dream come true for you.Personally, I thought this was another crap story along the lines of (but not nearly as horrible as) Elektra: Assassin. If you liked Frank Miller's take on this character, then you'll enjoy Bloodlines. Otherwise, stay away.Elektra as a narrator [...]

    2. Wow. This shit is lame. The art was pretty in an ethereal sorta way, but also annoying for 5 full issues.The storyline? Ugh. Elektra has to find a super assassin and bring him in, but others are on the trail as welld everything isn't as it seemsyawn.This shouldn't ever have been published. It's like they just put lipstick on a pig from 1983 and called it new.Don't waste your time reading, if you want, just flick thru the pictures.

    3. Phewf, this one was steenky! OK, so continuing Marvel’s inspired plan of giving their baddies their own titles - Magneto, Loki - is Elektra, whose series is the worst of the bunch. She’s already not a very well-known character but throw in nothing but unknown characters along with her and you’ve got a wholly unengaging story. But wait! you say, relatively unknown characters can sometimes be interesting to read about too! And to that, I agree - if the writer is any good at characterisation. [...]

    4. ¡GENIAL! No solo el guión es bueno sino que, además, el dibujo me ha dejado con la boca abierta. Consigue que te pierdas en la psique de Elektra y también en la de sus enemigos. ¡Deseando seguir con la historia!

    5. Well dang I did not expect to enjoy this as much as I did but here we are. My love for Elektra just grows stronger by the day. This gave me lots of emotion and gave some depth to the character other than "hardcore assassin lady", so that's cool! I'm so here for being reminded about how much I love the Matt/Elektra dynamic and how sad I am that they can't just BE TOGETHER, DANGIT. On another note to loveI'd seen this dude's artwork before, in Black Widow, Volume 1: The Finely Woven Thread, and I [...]

    6. So, everything I know about Elektra is from that infamous Daredevil movie with Ben Affleck (I actually thought it wasn't that bad, but what the heck do I know?). It seems like Marvel is giving every random guy they own a title lately and I was curious about this. Let me start my saying that the art is gorgeous. It seems like Del Mundo is painting, not drawing and it's such a different style to what I'm used to that it's such a breath of fresh air. Unfortunately, the story doesn't live up to the [...]

    7. "It was amazing" Could not have said it better myself.I think I was in love by page 3.The writing? Yes! This guy has written something else sweet, that I loved recently, Can't remember right now, but this is excellent!The Art? OMFG! This artist is Insanely good!!! Like, on every single level.This is a Book (~review) that deserves exclamation points!!!

    8. I know very little about Elektra. Here is what I know:She is an assassin.She wears red.She uses sai.She was with Daredevil at one point.I've avoided both movies that featured this character because a) Ew, Ben Affleck! and b) they didn't get good reviews. Alas, I'm woefully behind on my Netflix shows as well, so if she's popped up in the new Daredevil TV series, I missed it.So, I'm getting this vibe that Elektra is a bit like Black Widow or Deadpool, in that she kills a lot of people, but there's [...]

    9. Well I'll echo the comments of pretty much every single person who has read this and just say how amazingly wonderful the artwork is! Del Mundo is some sort of artist genius and his drawings are more like paintings displayed in fancy art galleries. I loved the art so much! I was wary going in to this as I have never read anything of Elektra and I've only ever heard bad things from people about her from both the Daredevil and Elektra movies. I however absolutely loved the story and thought it was [...]

    10. The cover font and credits page scream Frank Miller's Elektra Assassin. The artwork even takes clues from that series' artist Bill Sienkiewicz. I haven't read much non Frank Miller Elektra. I have no idea what she's been up to in the last 20 years or so in the Marvel universe. This series has a nice fresh start. I feel like I haven't missed anything important. And, if I had skipped this series, I also wouldn't feel like I had missed anything. Pick up if you're into nice artwork and lots of fight [...]

    11. I've always loved Elektra. The artwork was stunning and very modern. Docked a star as the plot was confusing at points.

    12. Not massively impressed with the story. I love Elektra in Netflix's Daredevil but in this one, I dunno, it just seemed like she didn't really have much of a personality? Anyway, I did love the artwork, and I have the second volume anyway, so I'll probably read that soon too.

    13. I loved this comic. The art is sensational, the story gripping. Electra has not felt so personally compelling since Frank Miller.

    14. I agree with many other sentiments written here. Let me start by saying that I am a big fan of the character Elektra, and she has had some wonderful stories in the past. The art is often interesting, though the coloring can be jarring and feel out of place sometimes because the palette seems to shift for no reason at times. The art is reminiscent of Sienkiewicz's work on Elektra in the 80s, but not quite as organic and inspired. At times the art feels overwrought for the sake of being interestin [...]

    15. I bought this trade on sale because I liked the art, and I'm easily satisfied with that purchase. Mundo's art in this comic is something to behold as the careful brushstrokes and deep colours make this reminiscent of the Japanese art Elektra is (stereotypically?) based off. The colours are breathtaking, and the contrast of the light blues and whites against the harsh reds, whilst not overly original, are very well done, and something I personally enjoy a lot. As I said, I bought this trade for a [...]

    16. Frank Miller did some of his best work on her, but since Marvel brought her back Elektra's solo runs have tended to be sorry, stuttering things, with even creators who are generally entertaining struggling to take her beyond scantily-clad ninja bad girl (or is she?) cliches. And this time round, I didn't even know the creators, so I wasn't expecting much at all. My mistake. The story isn't anything wildly original (Elektra takes a contract to track down a legendary assassin and bring him in aliv [...]

    17. My first comic about Elektra, the drawings were gorgeous and the story captivating. We follow both Elektra and a cannibal serial killer on their run to find a famous assassin whose bounty is high. The story took time to reveal the characters's past and it gave a grave touch to the story. They traveled around the world and it was weird to see Elektra so far away from the city. She's interesting and I will continue reading her adventures.

    18. Elektra is a graphic novel with stunning artwork. Its some of the best I have ever seen in graphic novels. Its totally different fromt he rest in this aspect, like look at the cover! Look! Isnt it amazing?But the storyline wasnt very interesting, it was confusing a lot of the time and really required a reread. I didn't have the chance because of library due dates. I didn't enjoy reading it, but I enjoyed looking at it.

    19. El punto fuerte de este cómic claramente son los dibujos de Mike del Mundo, que recuerdan al arte de la épica "Elektra Assassin" pero que no vienen a menos y son verdaderamente espectaculares.El guión entretiene, nos metemos bien en la cabeza de Elektra y de los adversarios a los que se va enfrentando, resultando un comic bastante oscuro y lleno de peleas espectaculares.A ver cuando consigo el segundo tomo que cierra la serie.

    20. Mike Del Mundo is a superb artist and you really won't want to pass this one up. Excellent stuff. One of Marvel's best looking series.

    21. The art is beautiful but I feel like it hurt the story for me because there was so much going on. The story was also kind of meh for me. I liked this but I wasn't like omg this amazing.

    22. I highly anticipated this book and it started like i wanted to, with Elektra the assassin and no Murdock. But it didn't delivered like I hoped

    23. Actually more of a 3.25. Mainly enjoyed Elektra's characterization and how the art didn't make her cheesecake-y with that stupid outfit.

    24. W. Haden Blackman - writerMichael Del Mundo - artiststory ***art *****overall ****recommended for fans of ninjas, daredevil, cannibalism and rule 63

    25. Yawn. The artwork was cool but the plot was weak and your villain seemed invincible, until pushing him off a cliff did the trick. Lol
