Read full description of the books Elektra and Wolverine: The Redeemer:I've been a fan of Yoshitaka Amano's artwork since first encountering it in Sandman: The Dream Hunters, so when I came across this three-part miniseries in my local comic book shop (which is what I have rather than the collected hardcover indicated here), I snatched it up. I don't think I've read Greg Rucka before now, but this oversight is, as of this writing, remedied.
Rucka's taut crime narrative of an assassination gone wrong is riveting from the start. I know very little about the character of Elektra except for the so-so Daredevil movie starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, but she is presented here as a straight-up ninja, hyper-competent in her abilities, fluid and lethal enough in her abilities to kill Wolverine (if he could be killed), and yet presenting a human side as well, when she kidnaps, rather than kills, the daughter of her assigned target. Wolverine, who'd been brought in to bodyguard the teenager, must now track her, and the revelations about the girl's parents, that they had been involved in the life-altering surgeries to provide the Canadian with his adamantium bones, and that they may have experimented on their own daughter using Logan as a template, spin the story into double-crossing and conspiracy.
Amano's art throughout is simply gorgeous. His renderings of Elektra paint her as elegantly balletic and fierce in her determination, while Wolverine is showcased sans his trademark haircut and as a brutal bruiser. Greys and blacks predominate for this dark story.
This graphic novel (although it's more of an illustrated novella) was a wonderful serendipitous surprise, and although it's now ten years old, I'd recommend it to anyone able to find it.
