Anyone knows where to find a complete bibliography of Elektra. The wikipedia article is of little use and Google didn't help that much...

A bibliography with timeline would be great!

Her page on the Comic Book Database has a list of every one of her appearances in chronological/publishing order.

I found this archived message board page where someone asks the same question. Judging by what that site says and my own limited knowledge of the character, it seems like the essential Elektra stories are:

  • Daredevil #168-169, 1981
  • Daredevil #174-182, 1981-1982
  • Daredevil #190, 1983
  • Elektra: Assassin #1-8, 1986-1987
  • Elektra volume 3 #1-6, 2001-2002
  • Wolverine volume 3 #20-31: "Enemy of the State"/"Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.", 2004-2005
  • Daredevil volume 2 #76-81: "The Murdock Papers", 2005-2006
  • Dark Reign: Elektra #1-5, 2009

In the time leading up to the Dark Reign: Elektra mini, Elektra was impersonated by a Skrull as part of the larger Secret Invasion storyline that Marvel did. While eventually revealed to not be Elektra, these issues constitute an important event in the character's history.

  • New Avengers #27-31: "Revolution", 2007
  • New Avengers #32: "The Trust, part one", 2007

@Dr G Heads up, Elektra: Assassin is being re-released in a hardcover format in November. Details:… – Brett White Aug 24 '11 at 14:32

Marvel's detail page for Elektra lists 109 appearances that can be sorted oldest to newest. I don't know if it's more or less complete than other possible sources like, say, Comicvine.

It seems to be less complete. It doesn't list Elektra: Assassin. – sjl Aug 8 '11 at 16:16
