It was innovative in that it was only available in a hardback edition (ISBN 093621127X). It was also a few centimetres taller and wider than the usual graphic novel. It has been reprinted a number of times (1991 ISBN 0871357380, 1996 ISBN 0-7851-0279-5), most recently in 2002 (ISBN 0-7851-0890-4), and would get a paperback release in 1993 (ISBN 0871357984). It was also included in the 2008 hardcover Elektra by Frank Miller Omnibus (ISBN 0-7851-2777-1), along with the Elektra: Assassin limited series and a number of shorter stories.
It is a spin-off from Miller's run on Daredevil and tells the story of the return of woman Ninja warrior Elektra from death. Over the years Miller has had a complex relationship with his creation Elektra having killed her off once but brought her back to life several times since.
