ComicBook.comElektra: Black, White and Blood got off to a solid start, but it's issue #2 where the premise and the character finally coalesce. The anthology format can present several different sides of a character and form a very unique sort of window into the person it's depicting, and on that level issue #2 succeeds across the board. "Cut and Run" (by Peter David, Greg Land, Jay Leisten, and Frank D'Armata) presents Elektra's cocky and vengeful side while "Verite" (by Al Ewing and Rod Reis) showcases the lethal assassin her reputation purports her to be. Meanwhile, "Yokai" (by Greg Smallwood) pulls back to reveal the caring and tenderhearted aspects of Elektra we so seldom get to see, and it all paints a vivid (and at times quite gory) picture of who she is and what she's about. This is easily one of the most cohesive, well-rounded, and visually impressive Marvel anthology issues yet in this format, and here's hoping the momentum continues next month, because if so Elektra fans are in for a treat.
Weird Science Marvel ComicsElektra: Black, White & Blood #2 is a strong entry in the anthology series with a general focus on treating Elektra as a force of nature or a plot device rather than as a central character. The art is generally good in all shorts, but nothing particularly stands out as a clear winner in the bunch. In other words, this issue is just okay.
Impulse GamerWell worth a look if you just want to dip into a story involving this character.
RazorfineIn “Verit” 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.
