The X-Axis by Paul O'Brien (

Elektra #12

ELEKTRA #12 - God, this book has improved since Greg Rucka took over. The main aim of this storyline seems to be to kick Elektra out of her assassin role and force her to find some other identity for herself. Obviously that vastly expands her possibilities as a protagonist, since her main limitation in that role is that all she does is kill people for no personal reason. Carlo Pagulayan's pencils manage to bring out a more vulnerable side of Elektra's character, and the possibilities for where the series goes from here are intriguing. I really wish they'd get a different cover artist, though - a swimsuit model in a straitjacket is not quite the look this book needs.

Grade: A
