At the time of the creation of this eight issue limited series, writer Frank Miller and artist Bill Sienkiewicz were two of the biggest names in comics. Marvel wanted a Marvel Universe series to help reinvigorate their mature readers Epic Comics imprint (which had been entirely creator owned previously) and turned to Miller to pen an Elektra story along with art from Sienkiewcz who used his water color style.
