Elektra (Review)

Citizen's Grade: O.K.

This film brought to the forefront one of the most dangerous, enigmatic & beautiful characters in Marvel Comics.....Elektra! Starring Jennifer Garner (who also played the same part in the Daredevil movie), she's all that stands between good and evil...when she's not being an assassin.

Restored to life after being murdered by Bullseye (see: Daredevil movie Review), Elektra is the world's deadliest assassin. But when she befriends a Man and his daughter, she is forced to make a fateful decision that will forever change her life and theirs.

When she finds out her next targets for assassination are the father and daughter she battles inner demons and mystically-powered ninja assassins of The Hand. With the help of her Mentor; Stick, she must find a way to do what she's never done before....Save rather than Kill.

Overall, a decent movie that does justice to the character. Jennifer Garner is beautiful and the action is good. Forget continuity if you're a Elektra comic book fan though!

Daredevil by Kevin Smith...(Review)

Citizen's Grade: Impressive.

With the relaunch of Daredevil happening soon in Marvel Comics, I thought I'd review the previous body of work from the last relaunch of Daredevil. Going over 100 issues, it spawned a couple movies (Daredevil & Electra) and has created THE mythos of the character. There were 4 main writers for this series' duration, all of them adding their part. I will break the series' down by author......first is Kevin Smith.

Justice League of America by Dwanye McDuffie (Review)

Citizen's Grade: O.K.

After Brad Meltzer's run on Justice League of America (see: JLA by B.M.), Dwayne McDuffie took over and hit the ground running with "The Injustice League". He would write 4 volumes of the JLA; and along with Ed Benes and a few other artists, make it an enjoyable run with some interesting plots and characters.

John Constantine Hellblazer: Original Sins (Review)

Citizen's Grade: O.K.

I enjoyed the movie Constantine, but hadn't collected any of the Comic Books or Graphic the time I saw the movie there were several collections (many of them hard to find), and my OCD about completing collections wouldn't allow me to purchase them. Then...Vertigo/DC decided to re-release the books from the beginning...I was excited and purchased Original Sins, the first collection.
