Daredevil #168 - Frank Miller art & cover

Daredevil v1 #168, 1981 - Frank Miller takes over the scripting chores, introducing Daredevil's lost love turned assassin, Elektra. Most of the issue is told in flashback, in small but numerous panels. A good bit of dialogue fills the panels, but the artwork itself is sparingly detailed. The visuals certainly reinforce, rather than detract from the storytelling, but seem hurried in execution. Miller's cover, with their bold lightning flashes, strikes me as overly dramatic. I do appreciate, however, that Elektra remains obscured to pique the reader's interest. Several pages of this story were later reprinted in Elektra Saga #1. This is number 10 of 33 Daredevil issues with Miller art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Miller or Daredevil issues. See also this blog's Frank Miller checklist.
