Elektra Lives Again is a 1990 graphic novel by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley that was published through the Marvel Comics imprint Epic Comics. It is a spin-off from Miller's run on Daredevil and tells the story of the return of 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.)
Elektra Lives Again was innovative in that it was originally only available in a hardback edition (ISBN 093621127X). (It was also a few centimetres taller and wider than the usual graphic novel.) Elektra Lives Again has been reprinted a number of times (1991 ISBN 0-87135-738-0, 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). Elektra Lives Again 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.
Elektra Lives Again was also the first time that Miller dispensed with the inks of Klaus Janson, instead pencilling and inking the work himself. In this Elektra Lives Again anticipates Miller's later work from Sin City onward.
