DAREDEVIL #168 (1981)

1st appearance of elektra

Frank Miller introduces Elektra, and 13 year old boys around the country start looking for sais.

The issue starts in a really cool way:

That’s Turk, pretending to be blind, and Daredevil, the blind hero, beating the crap out of him on the next page.

This is the first shot of Elektra:

We get the whole backstory of her father being an ambassador and Matt Murdock saving them from a hostage situation, years before he ever became Daredevil.  Including a flashback to the first time he met her.

It was love at first “sight.”

Creators: Frank Miller and Klaus Janson
