Elektra: Assassin #5 of 8

Frank Miller // Bill Sienkiewicz
December 1986
*****

Issue #5 follows a scuba duel in the Potomac w/ a helicopter dogfight in DC airspace! It also gives Elektra a foil, a blonde SHIELD agent in Catholic iconography. This mini exemplifies the shift towards violence in mid-’80s comics, but here it has a thematic context as well as an aesthetic.
