"Elektra is the world's deadliest assassin — and she's taken a vow not to kill. Someone puts themselves directly in her path with deadly consequences. What else would you expect from the MARVEL UNIVERSE'S GREATEST HUNTER?!"

Zdarsky says in a statement provided to ComicBook.com, "When we were planning out Devils Reign it become apparent early on that Elektra's story is too big to be contained in the main series! Wilson Fisk has unearthed her darkest secret and I'm super excited for readers to see the fallout in this series!"

As for working with de Latorre, Zdarsky says, "Rafael is a real revelation as an artist. Crisp, well-orchestrated storytelling and a beautiful eye for emotion. I genuinely think they're the next big artist from Marvel! His Elektra is perfect!"
