Frank actually wrote every issue of Elektra: Assassin at least three times. First after going over his plot ideas with me, he'd turn in a full script which, after further discussion, he always rewrote. Then, after Bill had finished painting the issue, and the pages were all assembled with whatever color photo stats, Xeroxes, doilies, staples or sewing thread Bill felt was needed to give them the right look, Frank would do a final draft, taking full advantage of whatever new and unexpected touches Bill had incorporated into the work.
The story changed dramatically as Frank and Bill played off each other in ways that combined genius, lunacy and magic.
