If you’re serious about collecting Elektra Comics, the first place to start is Elektra’s first appearance in Daredevil #168.

Written and illustrated by Frank Miller, the Elektra Marvel Comics debut shows us that she and Daredevil were once college lovers, but she is now an assassin for Kingpin.

If you look closely on the cover of Daredevil #168, you see that Elektra has been misspelled as “Elecktra”. Daredevil #168 is by far the most valuable Elektra comic.

Elektra’s Marvel Comic role has been hotly debated since her debut.

Originally created as a temporary character, Frank Miller kept her on for a bit longer, culminating in her death by Bullseye in Daredevil #181.

While not as valuable as Daredevil #168, Daredevil #181 is nonetheless collectible and a great piece of Elektra Marvel Comics history.

Was Frank Miller always planning on bringing back Elektra, or was fan demand too much to ignore?

A few months after her death, Stone resurrects Elektra. However, her return doesn’t mean she’s back in Daredevil’s life.

Instead, she goes on to star in her own Elektra comics title and also crosses over to appear in other Marvel comics.

Graphic and raw, Elektra: Assassin is one of Marvel’s most mature comics.

It’s not really a secret that Elektra doesn’t like clothes, but Elektra #3 takes things to a whole new level.

Whether by error or not, the first printing of Elektra Marvel Comics #3 features some shadowy nudity on pages 25 – 28. No, there’s nothing R rated, but Marvel felt the reveal was enough to prompt a recall.

According to experts, 2,000 - 5,000 copies of this comic exist, making it one of Marvel’s lowest print runs ever. More than 340 of them have been certified by CGC, so they are easy to find and not particularly valuable.

It's really a lot of fuss about nothing. The images which created the recall are below, and also a later cover from the series which, to us, is more risque!
