I read this before in issue form but, I think it was one of the best Daredevil and Elektra stories. And I really wish there was more.

@haydenclaireheroes: I just realized I somehow missed the Ultimate Elektra series by Mike Carey and Salvador Larroca. Perhaps that will fill in some of the gaps/problems I had between this and her Ultimate Spider-Man appearances. I just picked up the issues but haven't had a chance to look at them.

I picked this up back in the day when I was trying to get into comics the first time.  I tried to focus on Ultimate stories, but this was so unique and different. 
As a superhero book, it isn't the most compelling, but it is a really nice romance story.  The interplay between two characters that love each other, but have such different ways of viewing the world makes this an easy to recommend book.

I haven't read this yet. But I agree some stuff in the ultimate universe, is a little off.  Well nice review you two.

i don't like joe quesada's art either,
i was more offended by the art of One More Day than the plot

i picked up tha issues along with tha ulti elektra series sometime after they came out. this was just around when i was expanding my reading. i like all tha creators involved, but i didnt really enjoy either series.

In The Ultimate Elektra series, at the end Kingpin offers her a job as an assassin after she takes down Bullseye and i guess that's how she appears in the Ultimate Spiderman issue

The Ultimate comics are non esistence to me.

I am way more into the classic Marvel heroes but I still really love Elektra! :D

I had never read this series, but some of it sounded and looked really familiar... after digging through my trades I came across the official comic adaption of the Daredevil movie (because, yes... for some reason I own that) and sure enough, issue 1 of Ultimate Daredevil and Elektra was reprinted in it. Weird.

i LOVE everything ultimate! the writing's funnier, the heroes are younger and edgier and its nice to see a new spin on heroes we already know, i even like ultimate spider-man better than the 616 one in my opinion

i have ultimate  Elektra   it was good and im going to pick this too

I'm not marvelously fanatical about anything Ultimates, and this TPB doesn't really serve a good purpose as a classic hero story, but if you're a fan of the Whedon-esque school of romantic interaction (and as the girliest of girlie-girls, I am), this is a good read for a fresh take on the Elektra-DD storyline.  oh, and it introduced me to the art of Salvador Larroca, so HOORAY!
 
P.S. - I liked Ultimate Elektra, but I have this odd, nagging sensation that I might have been the only one

I remember reading this and not liking it much because it came out  around a time when Marvel was using sexual assault in their stories not infrequently. Black Cat, Kate Bishop, Jessica Jones... it started to really feel trivialized and exploited to me. Maybe I'll give this another look outside of that context.

For the most part if there is a writer/artist I like doing an Ultmate book/character I care about, I'll buy it.   
 
I am a huge Elecktra fan so this is a buy for me. 
 
About a year ago I put Elektra on my must-have-all, list.  This means that whenever I find a "good buy" or a nice "nick and dent" deal on ANYTHING Elecktra, I will buy it.  Eventually, I will have this book, I am surprised I do not have it already. 
 
Thanks for the review, I like the exchange between the two of you.

I mean this in the most respectful way, Sara looks like she could be a movie star in this video.

 I had reviewed the original books. I would bury to low borrow using their rating system. Not only is there no real change, there is nothing that really happens in the book either.

Badass!

#27 Posted by The Devil Tiger (1263 posts) - - Show Bio

I'll agree with Gman on this.
#28 Posted by goldenkey (2927 posts) - - Show Bio

this book was a let down.  I anyone read this because they wanted to see a good rating then pick up Frank Millers "Dare Devil Man without Fear" orgin retelling illustrated by John Romita Jr.  excellent excellent book and not outdated at all.
