With two heroes both known for bladed weapons, it's bound something would be chopped off. This summer's Wolverine vs. Blade Special #1 by writer Marc Guggenheim and artist David Wilkins will be 8 pages shorter than previously announced. The $5.99 price point will remain the same, however.
The July 10 one-shot has been reduced from 56 pages to 48. The publisher didn't give a reason for this change, however Guggenheim has previously said this one-shot has been in development since 2009.
"I couldn’t possibly be more excited for it to finally see publication," Guggenheim said in April 2019. "I think it’s worth the wait."
Here is the updated solicitation:
