The next installment of Elektra’s adventures begin in this issue,Double Tap: Part One, from series writer Blackman and new artist Alex Sanchez, stepping in after Mike Del Mundo. While I certainly miss Del Mundo’s pencils, it feels appropriate to begin this two-part arc with another artist as the book shifts gears slightly. What began as the race to save Cape Crow from Bloody Lips has become a bloody trek across the world, with Elektra fending off Guild assassins at every turn. Resigned to this mission, both professionally and philosophically, Elektra must keep Cape Crow, his telepathic son Kento and a wounded Matchmaker alive, moving from safe house to safe house in their search for refuge.
Gillen and McKelvie continue to probe the outlandish world of pop stars and murderous divinity in The Wicked + The Divine #4. As Lucifer remains locked up for a crime she (possibly?) didn’t commit, the search for the judge’s real killer brings Laura and Cassandra to their number one suspect, Baal, who appears to find them quite by chance. With his incredible ego and long-standing grudge against Lucifer, Baal appears to be their best bet. However, this comical mystery still has some tricks up its sleeve, and Laura’s journey is far from over.
