ELEKTRA (2001) (#1-35) (MARVEL) #1 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: ELEKTRA #1
Cover by Greg Horn; Brian Michael Bendis/Chuck Austen
* THE SCOOP: Dig Tomb Raider? Love La Femme Nikita? Then you'll die for Marvel Knights' newest ongoing - and non Comics Code - series written by Brian Michael Bendis!
* THE STORY: She was killed, but got over it. Now the enigmatic assassin named Elektra begins a new life! In the deadly world of international espionage, Elektra is a hot commodity - and the top-secret organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. wants her for a mission so dirty that no one else could even think of pulling it off! But Elektra can't be bought, bribed or threatened. And if she takes the job, she'll do it her way, no matter how many people may die! Following the winning Marvel Knights formula of matching cool creators with hot characters, this new monthly series will deliver plenty of action, intrigue, and sex appeal! And while a censored portion of this debut issue will run in Wizard #118, this comic will show you what they couldn't!
* THE CREATORS: You know how popular Bendis is, and after this issue you'll all remember the art of Chuck Austen, an animator from Fox's "King of the Hill!" And feast your eyes on those lush, computer-rendered covers by Greg Horn!
THE BOSS SPEAKS: "Elektra is absolutely the most complex, breathtaking and sultry character in the Marvel Universe," stated Bill Jemas, Marvel's President of Publishing & New Media. "She's all things to all people: a villain and a hero; a sympathetic character, yet reviled and misunderstood; fearless, but not infallible. As a fierce, uniquely multicultural character, she was truly ahead of her time. The time is right for Elektra to return to the pop culture forefront and reclaim her crown."
* THE FORMAT: The first issue of this monthly series is 48 pages, with ads. Subsequent issues will be 32 pages, with ads.
