ELEKTRA & WOLVERINE: THE REDEEMER #1, the debut issue of the illustrated prose graphic novel by Greg Rucka and Yoshitaka Amano, is expanding from 48 to 56 pages.


The expansion will not increase the cover price of $5.95.


"Mr. Amano's work on this book is absolutely stunning, and it simply demanded more space in order to be properly showcased," says editor Jenny Lee.


"Also, while this project is not sequential storytelling in the conventional sense, the illustrations and words do flow together in a very specific rhythm to create a narrative effect greater than the sum of its parts. The extra eight pages will ensure that both Greg's words and Mr. Amano's art get the treatment they deserve to properly come together. The layout is just about finished and issue #1 looks gorgeous."


The three-part series reveals the first meeting of Elektra and Wolverine.


The issue reaches stores on Nov. 21.
