I’ve recently looked into this series, thinking it was just reprints, but it’s more than that. It’s Frank Miller’s first run chopped up to focus more on Elektra. It contains some new content, and a colored version of the Bizarre Adventures story.

So what are all the changes? How is the new content? Any new or rewritten dialogue? Is the Bizarre Adventures story reprinted in full? And most importantly, how does it read?
