What Happens In Vegas, Stays In Vegas In Owens & Cabal’s ‘Elektra’ #1 [Preview]
Marvel is expanding its Daredevil family of titles under the banner "Running With The Devil", and as part of the new initiative, Matt Owens and Juann Cabal are taking over on a new volume of Elektra that takes the master assassin to Las Vegas for a run in with the ultimate gamesmaster supervillain, Arcade!
Marvel has provided us with a first look at Elektra #1, out late next month, which sees the former leader of The Hand testing her luck as a high roller.
One of the biggest selling points of the new volume is that Elektra Natchios finally has an updated costume that reflects her appearance in Netflix's Daredevil series, and is a big step-up from the strategically placed flowing pieces of silk she's worn for the past thirty years. The choice of Arcade as a villain is also an inspired choice, not only for the location of Las Vegas, but because there isn't a single villain in the Marvel Universe that could possibly get on Elektra's nerves more.
Check out an unlettered preview below:
