The world's ultimate assassin...face-to-face with her bloody past!
Acclaimed crime novelist and Eisner Award-winning comic-book writer Greg Rucka reveals a chilling, self-destructive side to the enigma known as Elektra.
Trained as a ninja, loyal to no one, Elektra is inhumanly ruthless, coldly efficient, and impossibly determined. Her own tragic death and miraculous resurrection offered hope for a new life, but redemption slipped far too quickly from her bloody fingers. Now accepting her dark destiny, Elektra carries out her assignments with grim resolution.
But what happens when she's between jobs, with no one to kill? Cut off from her livelihood and struggling to keep hold of her sanity, Elektra finally faces the consequences of her actions as the mysterious Mr. Locke takes the femme fatale on a guided tour of her blood-drenched past.
The journey will change Elektra forever.
Collecting Elektra #10-15, written by Greg Rucka (Black Widow, Whiteout, Spider-Man: Quality of Life, the Atticus Kodiak series of suspense novels) and illustrated by newcomer Carol Pagulayan with Joe Bennett (Fantastic Four, Thor). Plus: the lead story from Marvel Knights: Double-Shot #3, rendered in full CGI by Elektra cover artist Greg Horn.
Elektra is forced to confront her murderous past after being taken hostage by an adversary. Feeling desperate in her containment, Elektra must choose between continuing her homicidal profession or making an attempt to change her life.
